Hello to all,
I am creating one java applet in which i have to use many JButtons.
So i used an array of J Button. Now my program is able to create buttons but it is not able to use ActionListener or ActionCommand....
I am sending a part of code with this thread. Please let me know where I am wrong....

private void DrawElectric_field(Graphics g22, int i){
		int m=1;
		c= 3*Math.pow(10, 8);
		freq= f1* Math.pow(10,9);
		do{
			fmin = m*c/(2*d1*Math.pow(10,-3));
			m++;
			
		}while(freq>=fmin);
		
		temode = m;
		g22.drawString("No.of Modes:" +temode, 800, 200);
		
		
		
		 for(int k=1, j = 0;k<=temode;k++,j++){
	    	  msg="TE"+k;
	    	 //JPanel fieldPanel = new JPanel(new GridLayout(1,2));
	    	 //JButton k1;
	    	  repaint();
	    	 JButton[] buttons= new JButton[temode];
	    	 buttons[j]=new JButton(msg);
	    	 getContentPane().add(buttons[j]);
	    	 buttons[j].setBounds(50+(100*k),600,80,40);
	    	 setLayout(null);//(new GridBagLayout());
	    	buttons[j].addActionListener(wave.this);
	    	 buttons[j].setActionCommand(msg);
		 }
		 			
	}
	
	public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent ae) {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
		
			try{
			
				 if(ae.getActionCommand().equals("TE1")){
			 				 cnt=4;
			 			 }
			 			 
			 			       if(ae.getActionCommand().equals("TE2")){
			 				 cnt=5;
			 			 }
			 			 
//	 Here the same is applied for all the buttons i will create but now i am writing it just for two buttons TE1 and TE2		 			
				}	
				}catch(Exception e){ e.printStackTrace();}

You need :
jbutton.addActionListener(new ActionListener(){ public void actionperformed{ .....}
);
So can try with this.

Edited 6 Years Ago by ~s.o.s~: Snipped fake signature; use the signature feature of this forum instead.

Thanks for your help but still the buttons are not working. Now i am creating each button separately (removed array) still buttons are not working.
my code is too large to post. what do i do?
Need help.

thanking you.

public void first_te(Graphics g22, int i){
		
		JButton te1 = new JButton("TE1");
		getContentPane().add(te1);
		setLayout(null);
		te1.setBounds(250,600,80,40);
		te1.addActionListener(wave.this);
		te1.setActionCommand("TE1");
		System.out.print("first_te");
	}

public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e){
    		 try{
    				
 				if(e.getActionCommand().equals("TE1")){
 					System.out.print("first_te");
 					cnt=4;	
 			 	
    	 }
    		 }catch(Exception ae){ ae.printStackTrace();}
    	 }

		    	 }
    	 );

my applwt contains two panels
1. "getContentPane()" panel
2. fieldPanel(which contains label and textfield) with grid layout.

If you want you can attach your code here.
Secondly just wondering what is this wave? You are adding wave.this to the actionListener

while checking the code give distance = 100 and frequency=1;
i am using eclipse for this

Thanking you....

Sorry i m here again.... I am using JApplet in program.
While writing i mentioned it as applet but in program I am using JApplet.

Figured out that your buttons TE1, TE2, TE3 are not listening
Sorry cant get what the actual problem in your code. But just by hit n trail by using Buttons instead of JButtons all your buttons are Listening

Thanks for your reply.
Somebody has told me there is problem with layout.
But no idea whats exact or about solution???
:'(

i can't get it clear...

ok i think you have N number of Jbutton[1]....Jbutton[N]..

after you click Jbutton[1] then it will call actionPerformed{} for corresponding Jbutton[1]..

i asking 2 question to you.

1.you call same action performed for all buttons from 1..to..N..

2.else you need respectively..like b[1]-->actperform[1] ..

because ActionPerformed method need to get which button need response from that..

that's why method get conflict about response go to which button...

this only as far as i understood...

you make it clear then i will try to solve it...

thanks a lot musthafa.aj for your reply...
the Jbutton array was creating many problems so now i have written a simple program ( given in post :8).
again there is problem with actionlistener or with layout. i am sure abt it.
please go through post no.8

i will little bit busy now..

so you please give link for post no 8...i can't get it..

otherwise pms to me....it will be better...

Edited 6 Years Ago by musthafa.aj: n/a

i will little bit busy now..

so you please give link for post no 8...i can't get it..

otherwise pms to me....it will be better...

see the post i m writing right now is post no. 18
just have to look at post no. 8 from the same thread ( this thread).
if i will give you a link it will open the same page.
just go up in this thread or visit page.no.1 of the same thraed.

thanksss
