Hi I did a Simpletron program in GUI interface, but when I want to print the instructions in the window, it will not be as I want to. I used JGrasp to run the program and it just prints the instruction after each and not the way I wrote it in the program. For instance I want the program to be like:

                  *** Welcome to Simpletron! ***
                  ***Please enter your program one instruction***  
                  ***(or data word) at a time into the input***   
                  ***text field. I will display the location***   
                  ***number and a question mark (?). You then***  
                  ***type the word for that location. Press the***

But it's written in the program like:

*** Welcome to Simpletron! Please enter your program one instruction(or data word) at a time into the inputtext field. I will display the locationnumber and a question mark (?). You thentype the word for that location. Press theDone button to stop entering your program***

***Done button to stop entering your program***

It just won't show in aligned line. You can run the program to see how it runs. Please help me on this thank you.

The JTextArea is something new to me, so do you know how I can use it in this program?

0

OK I used the HTML method as you told me:

 JFrame frame = new JFrame();
 frame.setLayout(new GridLayout());
 JLabel label = new JLabel("<html>*** Welcome to Simpletron!***<br>***Please  enter your program one instruction  ***<br>*** (or data word) at a time into the input    ***<br>*** text field. I will display the location    ***<br>*** number and a question mark (?). You then   ***<br>*** type the word for that location. Press the ***<br>*** Done button to stop entering your program  *** </html>");
 frame.add(label);
 frame.pack();
 frame.setVisible(true);

But when I run it, it pops up in a new windows. I want to know how can I put it in the same window that my program instruction are. Do you know about this?

0

Thank you for responding, but I don't get how to add the JLabel to existing window! I tried to add instruction label to a new JLabel but nothing happens when I do that. Do you know how I can print the instructions in the main window?

0

Did you try to replace the code at line 55

 instructionLabel = new JLabel ( "*** Welcome to Simpletron! ***" +
                     "\n*** Please enter your program one instruction  ***" +
                     "\n*** (or data word) at a time into the input    ***" +
                     "\n*** text field. I will display the location    ***" +
                     "\n*** number and a question mark (?). You then   ***" +
                     "\n*** type the word for that location. Press the ***" +
                     "\n*** Done button to stop entering your program  ***" );

with the HTML version

 instructionLabel = new JLabel("<html>*** Welcome to Simpletron!***<br>***Please  enter your program one instruction  ***<br>*** (or data word) at a time into the input    ***<br>*** text field. I will display the location    ***<br>*** number and a question mark (?). You then   ***<br>*** type the word for that location. Press the ***<br>*** Done button to stop entering your program  *** </html>");

It seems unlikely that literally "nothing happened" when you changed the contents of a JLabel in your window...

You are going to have to be clearer in your explanations - the info you are giving is incomplete and inconsistent.

You have some multi-line text to display. Where do you want to display it? When do you want to display it?
