commented: A simple question, but you seemed nice about the whole thing :) +3

does that mean that your problem is solved? :)
when a button is presses, i assume you do already know how actionListener works.

no not yet but I'm working on it...

private void jButton1MouseClicked(java.awt.event.MouseEvent evt) {
// here i don't know how to invoke the "JFileChooser".....


any help....!

thank you

did you read the sun tutorial (my first post, the JFileChooser was a link (as is this one)? it explains the usage quite thoroughly...

a quote almost but not quite 1/4 down the page

int returnVal = fc.showOpenDialog(FileChooserDemo.this);

        if (returnVal == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION) {
            File file = fc.getSelectedFile();
            //This is where a real application would open the file.
            log.append("Opening: " + file.getName() + "." + newline);
        } else {
            log.append("Open command cancelled by user." + newline);

yes I've red that and it was quite helpful...

well im still far away form the objective which im working on... but sooner or later it will be done... yah...

thanks for the help
