hi,
iam trying to create phone directory as a seperate Jframe. there is a button in the main JFrame that leads to the seperate Jframe. the seperate Jframe contains JList which includes names and numbers. when click on any name from the list, this name with the number should appear in the Jtextfield of the main JFrame.
here is my program ( it is not completed yet), but I have many errors ???

this is the separate JFrame:

I get the following error when compiling the seperate JFrame (Address):

        listModel.addElement("Jessica 1654223789");

These lines cannot be in teh class body, they need to be inside some method of the Address class.Same goes for these lines:

list.setSelectionModel(ListSelectionModel.SINGLE_SELECTION);
        list.setSelectedIndex(0);
        list.addListSelectionListener(this);
        list.setLayoutOrientation(JList.VERTICAL_WRAP);
        list.setVisibleRowCount();

And these :

contacts.addActionListener(listListener);
contacts.getDocument();

listSelectionModel.addListSelectionListener(listListener);

You cannot have anything other than member declaration and/or initialize in the class body. Just going through some of the written programs on Java/Swing/AWT would help you.
