I also attached the project if anyone wants to take a look

at SearchGui.showResults(SearchGui.java:46)

I'm hoping the SearchGui is a class of yours....

Go to this class, look in your showResults method and then look at line 45 (From the top of the java page...) and there will me an object some where in that line that is null.

Regards,

Nate
