Hi everyone ...
I hope that all of u r OK...
This is the second semester for me in JAVA ..
I have an assignment to create a GUI using JAVA and I almost finish but the problem is the teacher asked to use any component that she didn't teach ... My frame is for calculating the body mass and I used (button,labels,textfields) can anyone give me a suggestion...

you could use a combination of: JMenuBar, JMenu and JMenuItem as an alternative for the function of your JButtons. This way you won't have to "invent" unneccessary functions for your application

Ezzaral....stultuske... Thank u so much.. I used menu but there is a smal error and I couldn't solve.. I will copy the program and I hope u will help

Edited 3 Years Ago by Nick Evan: Fixed formatting

The code compiles if you make the below changes

JTextField T1,T2,T3,T4;
JPanel P1;
JPanel P2;
JPanel P3;
public BodyMass()
{
	P1=new JPanel();
	P2=new JPanel();
	P3=new JPanel();

Enclose your multiple statements after if and else in curly braces.

An example:

else if (n.equals("ORANGE"))
{
P1.setBackground(Color.ORANGE);
P2.setBackground(Color.ORANGE);
P3.setBackground(Color.ORANGE);
}

Please use code tags.

thomas_naveen.... thank u sooooooooooooooo much...it worked..
sorry.. I don't know how to use code tags..
