Hi,

Im trying to list all the drives in the local machine in a combo box and when a drive selected all the folders and files in that drive must be listed ina list box.

I was succesfull in listing the drives in the combobos.But when i try to list the folders in the list box im getting error like this:

Error:

Prod_applet.java:226: Cannot find symbol
symbol : variable local_jlist
location: class Prod_applet
  local_jlist.addElement(local_files[i]);

1 error

Can any one help me in solving this problem ASAP please?Just got struck with it
i have given the code below.

Thankyou

Looks like local_jlist is a function local variable (inpublic Prod_applet()).. and not in the scope where you're using it (line 226).. make it a member variable.. it should work..

Comments
Quick spoted error

I have declared all the variables public only. No problem with other components only the listbox is bugging up.

Thnak you

I have declared all the variables public only. No problem with other components only the listbox is bugging up.

Im new for this just now trying practically.Can you help me in this more.

Thnak you

As thekashyap mentioned,

local_jlist is a function local variable (inpublic Prod_applet())

which mean you can not access it in public void itemStateChanged(ItemEvent e) . So you need to declare it on top level to be accesible by other methods

boolean inAnApplet = true;
final boolean shouldFill = true;
final boolean shouldWeightX = true;
public List local_jlist;

Also List doesn't have method addElement() so add() would be solution check reference

OK just seen this application running...
1. TextArea to list files is very-very small you should do something bigger. Play with settings for each component
2. In remote site I chosed my optical drive which made lots of un-catched errors and on top of that list was displayed in wrong TextArea (under my local disk)
3. Puzzled with functionality of buttons Connect & Disconnect. What do they do? If this application is supposed to work as FTP client you have to be able define location where you want to connect (like ftp.adobe.pub.com plus user name), but cann't say to much I doon't know what research you did into FTP clients

Hi thanks,
I have tried that also.Its now showing erro like"variable local_jlistmight not have been initialized"

Post the updated code and I will look at it

Hi thanks,
I have tried that also.Its now showing erro like"variable local_jlistmight not have been initialized"

This just means that you must set a value for the variable before it is used. You could change it's declaration to

public List local_jlist = null;
// or this
public List local_jlist = new ArrayList();

Note, you cannot simply say new List(), since List is an interface and not a class. You need to choose one of the List implementations to create.

Am I mistaken and List is not a class? What about this. However, you right List can be also interface but with less option then List class

Ah, yes, sorry I misread his intent. I was not thinking of the awt UI component, but rather the collection interface List.

Please disregard that bit about List :)

Hi,
Thanks.Iv fixed the problem and its working.

Now got another problem. When i select a drive from the combo box the directories get listed in the listbox.But when i choose the next drive the directoreis in the that choosen drive is appened along with the listed directoreis in the list box. I tried the clear method but not working.What may be my mistale?
Thank you

Edited 3 Years Ago by mike_2000_17: Fixed formatting

replace line 214 (according my IDE) which you commented out //local_jlist.clear(); with local_jlist.removeAll(); . If you check API properly you will find that List.clear()

Deprecated. As of JDK version 1.1, replaced by removeAll().

This will sort your problem with apend.

hi tolearn

i have indicated where you made mistakes using "++++++++++++++++++" look out these sections and you will get some coooments

Also not that list is an abstract window toolkit componet (awt) in the package java.awt.

it does have the method addElement(String)
instead you use

List mylist = new List();
mylist.add( String)

the reason you were getting the error variable local_jlist might not have been initialized is because you declared it in the method Prod_applet as follows

List local_jlist;

instead of List local_jlist = new List();

This happens when you are using java 1.4 and bellow. With java 1.5 you do not get that message
