Hi. I am trying to create a stand alone app but stuck somewhere.
When i click on a JCheckBox, it opens up another frame window. in this window if i click cancel then the JCheckBox in the previous frame is not checked. but if i click OK then this JCheckBox should be checked, but its not hapening. I have successfully done the cancel part but facing problems with the OK part.
Please help me out.

Java doesn't have any Swings. You find those in playgrounds with kids using them. Now, if you mean the Java Swing (note no s on the end) API, then say that.

You might want to post the relevant parts of your code. And, I hope, you are using a JDialog (or JOptionPane) for the "frame" that opens and not a JFrame. If not, using one of those may solve your problem almost in and of itself.

Here's the code for the first JFrame

import javax.swing.*;
import java.io.*;

Here's the code for the first JFrame, for only JCheckBox.

jc=new JCheckBox("Order By");
jc.setActionCommand("OrderBy");
jc.addItemListener(this);

public void itemStateChanged(ItemEvent ie)

{ from=from+jcb1.getSelectedItem().toString()+" ";
}
else if(ie.getSource()==jc)
{ if(ie.getStateChange()==1)
{ OrderBy ob=new OrderBy();
ob.setVisible(true);

Edited 6 Years Ago by masijade: properly added code tags

Well at least you tried. Those "*" don't belong in the code tags and cut-n-pasting the unformatted code from an earlier post, rather than pasting the original code, doesn't help, as you can see above. So, I went back and added code tags to the "original" code post, as well.

In this line

QueryBuilderDemo.jc.setSelected(true);

You need an actual instance of QueryBuilderDemo, not the Class.

so you mean that i should not define the JCheckBox variable as 'static'. coz dat is wat i've done.
Do let me know.

Okay, now I've seen that you've declared it static. To tell you the truth, I wouldn't though. It's just bad form, at the very least. Anyway ...

Call validate() and or repaint() on the contentPane of the frame. Another note is the description of the "setSelected" method.

setSelected

public void setSelected(boolean b)

Sets the state of the button. Note that this method does not trigger an actionEvent. Call doClick to perform a programatic action change.

Parameters:
b - true if the button is selected, otherwise false
