this is the main method

import javax.swing.JFrame;
import java.awt.*;

public class main_method
  {
  
  public static void main(String[] args)
  {
    JFrame frame = new JFrame();   
    frame.add(new Absolute());
    
  }
}
Re: how to get rid of this error in java please! 80 80

1. Exactly what is the real text of the error message, including line numbers?
2. Why do you have three JFrames (one created in main, one created in the constructor, and one instance of Absolute which is itself a JFrame)?

Re: how to get rid of this error in java please! 80 80

implements ActionListener //Error: Absolute is not abstract method actionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent) in java.awt.event.ActionListener

The text of the error message describes the problem.

Remember that java is case sensitive. Check your spelling.
