if this is the form being called from the main app
UpdateData up=new UpdateData();

provide it with the info in the constructor
UpdateData up=new UpdateData(year1);
or the textfield
UpdateData up=new UpdateData(textfield);

in UpdateData's constructor, pass that info to a class field,
accessible by the listener code
