Well I appreciate that Knute and Piet. Of course being sick does not do me any favors. I have learned quite a bit from everyone here, and I appreciate everything y’all have done.

Yes calling setMajor worked perfectly!

Fixed it by turning it into a button and using a lamda expression

The line is my collections.sort(students, new Person.firstNameSorter()); in the college class. So line 34

- Syntax error on token "(", Identifier

So, here would I put it? My person Class now looks like

and the array is in the College class I tried. But I get red lines that say "Delete )", "Delete (", and " = expected"

I fixed it. Or you could say found a way around it. Still works the way I want it to the only problem is im not reading from a file for the students loaded in. Instead I just set the major to "undeclared", and later in the program the students have the option to change that.

So now for my next question...sorting. For some reason this has been a real struggle for me, although I sorted everything right for my previous assignment. For this one I just want the arrayList<Students> sorted, so when the list view loads up all the names are sorted. Problem is that my student class holds no first name, last name they get that from the Person Class which they inherit. Both student and instructor inherit Person, but thats not important right now. I tried making person implement Comparable<student> but fussed that forst name is not visible as its set to private. Do I want to make that public for the sorting? Or is it better left private? Then I tried implementing a comparable<Student> in Person but when I did

It fussed that - is undefined for them. I just want to sort by firstName, simple sort. am I doing it in the wrong Class? I just thought since they get everything from Person that, thats where it should be

Here are my classes just incase. The person only shows the first name in the listView because of ways I had to return the names. Doesnt matter whats showing just as long as I have a sort, and the full student is shown when selected from the list. Again probably not Important


College where the student list is loaded

Can't you give a full listing, including everything?

Since the student is known here (is it?) why don't you simply do ''   (set the new major here with the correct Student method).

Yep I’m an idiot. I was so focused on the two text fields I didn’t pay attention to anything else

The application is always running. I’m not ending the program when I close the window. Each student is selected from a list, and then opens a new window to show the student. So when I change the major the original major textField should be updated. When that window is closed and selected again from the same running application it shows the new major.

Knute said something about making my list views accessible?

So I have two text fields one thats shows the students major, and one for them to enter a new major. When the button is hit I want the new major to replace the original major. Which we already did, but when I close the student window the major goes back to normal. I want to save that major change, so even if I close the window the new major will be there when I open the student again.

load majors is in my main app

my majors file looks like Computer Programming,true,ENG-101,CPT-102,CPT-167,CPT-187,CPT-172,CPT-242,IST-272,CPT-237,CPT-244,CPT-239,IST-238,CPT-270,MGT-270,MAT-110,CPT-262,ACC-101,IST-190,CPT-283,IST-204,CPT-210

but load majors only takes the first line, so it would be Computer Programming, Database, Accounting...and so on

Well then I am even more lost I have a list of students like
Cody, Biggs, Computer Programming

and the majors in my list look like
Computer Programming
and so on

so when Student gets my students major from the constructor, and when the major is Computer Programming, and the major in the catalog is Computer am I getting a null?
