I am currently writing a program in Netbeans which will perform binary to decimal, decimal to binary, hexadecimal to decimal, decimal to hexadecimal conversions, 1's compliment, 2's compliment, and show the list of boolean algebra rules.

I have created the GUI however, I cannot figure out how to make the Jbuttons generate the coding needed for a binary to decimal conversion of the input in a JTextField. The code is below:

package swing1;

So like, the exact thing you posted yesterday? Except that yesterday you had a different explanation of your problem. I don't know what it means to "make a JButton generate a coding" so you may want to ask clear questions and provide examples, otherwise, you won't get many enlightening replies.

edit: And even if you didn't like the reply I gave you yesterday, if it didn't make sense to you, or you thought it was stupid, you could at least reply back with something clarifying your issue, or disagreeing with me, or whatever. Not replying at all then posting a new thread on what seems to be the same topic is rude IMO.

your code will have to be done here...

public void actionPerformed (ActionEvent e){
JFrame frame2 = new JFrame ("Binary to Decimal Conversion");
frame2.setVisible(true);
frame2.setSize(500,300);
JLabel label = new JLabel ("Binary");
JPanel panel = new JPanel();
JButton b2d = new JButton("Convert to Decimal Now!");
JTextField text = new JTextField(25);
frame2.add(panel);
panel.add(text);
panel.add(label);
panel.add(b2d);
}

no auto-generated code... its something you will have to code yourself.

infact its quiet simple... read the binary value as a String... the parse it to int...

Integer.parseInt(string, 2)

I have re-posted this problem on different websites and I am sure I probably didn't see your reply yet. If I have and didn't reply I apologize. I'm not on here to disrespect anyone, but I am on here for assistance. Once again, thank you for any concerns, thoughts, or questions.

Sidebar: This was reposted because my code was changed entirely! I went from having a netbeans generated gui to me actually creating the gui myself! Although I am happy that I have accomplished that feat, I must deal with the problems ahead. When I go into my submenu, a user should be able to type in a number and get it converted into decimal/binary/hexadecimal by clicking on the JButton that 'says Convert to "decimal/binary/hexadecimal" now. This is where my problem comes in.

Edited 6 Years Ago by jxmst32: grammar and spelling

This was code I have generated from following tutorials. So are you saying add that one line of code and it will now read the user input as a binary string and convert it to decimal now? I just need more clarification if you don't mind.

public void actionPerformed (ActionEvent e){
JFrame frame2 = new JFrame ("Binary to Decimal Conversion");
frame2.setVisible(true);
frame2.setSize(500,300);
JLabel label = new JLabel ("Binary");
JPanel panel = new JPanel();
JButton b2d = new JButton("Convert to Decimal Now!");
JTextField text = new JTextField(25);
frame2.add(panel);
panel.add(text);
panel.add(label);
panel.add(b2d);
}

Integer.parseInt(string, 2)

it should work...

String bin = "";
bin = console.readln()
console.writeln(Integer.parseInt(bin , 2))

havent tried it myself

When I did input this code you just gave me, it could not find a symbol for variable console. Any other suggestions Phoenix?

it should work...

String bin = "";
bin = console.readln()
console.writeln(Integer.parseInt(bin , 2))

havent tried it myself

yeah sorry your not using a console app... try assigning the value of a textbox or labe to that

something like
Help with Code Tags
Java Syntax (Toggle Plain Text)

1.
textbox1.setText(Integer.parseInt(bin , 2))

textbox1.setText(Integer.parseInt(bin , 2))
..
remember to create the textbox


if that gives an error... just add .toString() at the end after the (bin, 2)
