Quoted Text Here

i am doing a snmp monitoring tool using java.. how can i insert a word rather that inserting the object indentifier value in the text box. it will be more user friendly if users only need to insert the word rather than inserting the long value of OID(object identifier)...please help me..thank you in advance.

Please explain why the program can not read a String vs the number from the user? Where in the code (700+ lines) is the problem? A text field takes text (String) data, not numberic data.

i m not sure how to put in a string rather than the number. line 700 is not the problem. my coding has no problem. i just want to try putting in a name rather than inserting an OID value to get the output

Where in the code does it read input from the user?
There isn't a statement at line 700 in what is posted.

The textfield's getText() method returns a String. Can you explain what you want the code to do with the String value it gets from the OIDField textfield?

Edited 4 Years Ago by NormR1

when i enter the itemID in my interface in the textbox OIDField i enter the OID value of the device for example 1.3.6.1.2.1.5.0 which means the switch's name but now i am trying to just enter in the textbox the name of the function itself. for example rather than entering 1.3.6.1..

when i enter the itemID in my interface in the textbox OIDField i enter the OID value of the device for example 1.3.6.1.2.1.5.0 which means the switch's name but now i am trying to just enter in the textbox the name of the function itself. for example rather than entering 1.3.6.1.2.1.5.0 i want to enter "switch name" and then the system will automatically know tht "switch name" = 1.3.6.1.2.1.5.0 how should i do this do i use double array. please do help realy will appreciate it

You could use two arrays, but that's a pretty messy solution. Java has a HashMap class that lets you create pairs of key/value and it will look up the value from the key for you. This example creates a map with Strings for the key and value, adds a couple of entries with a name for the key and an OID for the value, then does a lookup up the OID from the name.

HashMap<String, String> lookup = new HashMap<String, String>();
lookup.put("switch name", "1.3.6.1.2.1.5.0");
lookup.put("another name", "1.3.6.1.2.1.5.1");
System.out.println(lookup.get("another name"));

HashMap<String, String> lookup = new HashMap<String, String>();
lookup.put("switch name", "1.3.6.1.2.1.5.0");
lookup.put("another name", "1.3.6.1.2.1.5.1");
System.out.println(lookup.get("another name"));

how should i implement this hashmap in the class SNMPInquisitor. i have create a hashmap class but it does not relate to the other class.. the output wen i run hashmap is only this:
1.3.6.1.2.1.1.4.0
switch name= 1.3.6.1.2.1.1.5.0
another name= 1.3.6.1.2.1.1.4.0

Easiest way is just to make the HashMap an ordinary member of whatever class does the user interface. Fill it full of the name/number combinations at the beginning of the program, then use it to look up names and get the corresponding numbers whenever the user needs them.

i mean from your comment,you said to make the HashMap an ordinary member to the SNMPInquisitor.can you give me an example for that?..do you mean to just add a textbox and search for the oid value using HashMap and then the value will pop up in the textbox?
