have various classes representing various types of program-genres (comedy, drama etc).

I have a text file filled with '-' seperated values that get read by a class called Processing and puts them into a LinkedList.

I have another class GUI_g that creates the GUI. It has 3 JTables. One for the list and 1 for each Channel. (Channel 1 and Channel 2). The JTable listTable gets filled from the linkedlist and whenever a user clicks on a row, the textfields' text changes accordingly.

I tried with 3 fields (Title, Genre and Duration) and it worked, with the 3 textfields showing different text according to what row is clicked. However when I added all the needed values, an error comes up and no fields are filled.

I have two problems:

  1. If it's a MusicVideo the cells are not filled up (as it should be) however it returns an error when copying data to the JTextFields
  2. The Snyopsis column remains empty and is not filled.

Below are the classes (the ones mainly used). If you need others tell me and I'll upload.

This is the error I get:

Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.NullPointerException

JTable mouseListener:

listTable.addMouseListener(new MouseAdapter() {

                 public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent e) {
                    if (e.getClickCount() == 1) {
                  JTable target = (JTable)e.getSource();
                  int row = target.getSelectedRow();
                  int column = target.getSelectedColumn();

                  String title = listTable.getValueAt(row, column).toString();
                  String duration = listTable.getValueAt(row, column+1).toString();
                  String genre = listTable.getValueAt(row, column+2).toString();
                  String actor = listTable.getValueAt(row, column+3).toString();
                  String director = listTable.getValueAt(row, column+4).toString();
                  //String rentable = listTable.getValueAt(row, column+5).toString();
                  //String synopsis = listTable.getValueAt(row, column+6).toString();


                  if (listTable.getValueAt(row, column+3) == null) {

                      listTable.setValueAt("N/A", row, column+3);


                  else {


                  if (listTable.getValueAt(row, column+4) == null) {

                      listTable.setValueAt("N/A", row, column+4);

                  } else {
