Hello all!

I'm starting out learning how to use scala, but I'm finding the transition very tricky.

I'm writing a simple application where I enter text in a TextField and when I click "Show" it shows the text within the TextField
within the console.

In java all I need to do was to use ".getText()" to the the text from a JTextField.

How can I do this in scala? Or is it even possible?

Thanks

If it's still a JTextField, then you can do exactly the same in Scala as you did in Java - just call .getText() on it to get the text.

If you are using Scala swing's 'TextField' http://www.scala-lang.org/api/current/scala/swing/TextField.html, you can use 'text' method on the TextField to get the text.
