My delete button is not working and my due date is Sunday before midnight. Can anyone show me how to correct this error. My assignment statement is below as well as 5 classes. InventoryGUI is the main class to begin execution. I have a Data folder that contains my logo and inventory dat. file that goes with the code; however I'm not allowed to attach a dat file to the post. You can create your own Data folder (place in C: drive) and place my logo in it; you can create a new inventory dat. file just by using the "Save" option. Thanks!

• Modify the Inventory Program to include an Add button, a Delete button, and a Modify button on the GUI. These buttons should allow the user to perform the corresponding actions on the item name, the number of units in stock, and the price of each unit.An item added to the inventory should have an item number one more than the previous last item.
• Add a Save button to the GUI that saves the inventory to a C:\data\inventory.dat file.
• Use exception handling to create the directory and file if necessary.
• Add a search button to the GUI that allows the user to search for an item in the inventory by the product name. If the product is not found, the GUI should display an appropriate message. If the product is found, the GUI should display that product’s information in the
GUI.

I managed to get the "Delete" button to work. It was a matter of a misplaced bracket in the Inventory GUI code. Below is the part that was incorrect.

if( e.getActionCommand().equals( "Search" ) )
	  {
	     String s = JOptionPane.showInputDialog( null, " Enter Product Name ",null, 1 );
		 
		 s = inv.Search(s);
		 
		 if( s == null )
		 {
	        JOptionPane.showMessageDialog( this, " No Results Found " ) ;
		 } 
			
		 else textArea.setText( s );
			
		 if( e.getActionCommand().equals( "Delete" ) )
		 {
		    inv.getproducts().remove( inv.index );
	   	 }
      }

Here's the correction...

if( e.getActionCommand().equals( "Modify" ) )
	  {
	     InventoryDialogue id = new InventoryDialogue( false," Modify Inventory " );
	  }
	  
	  if( e.getActionCommand().equals( "Search" ) )
	  {
	     String s = JOptionPane.showInputDialog( null, " Enter Product Name ",null, 1 );
		 
		 s = inv.Search(s);

I do have one last problem dealing with the "Save" button execution.

When I click on save, it does create a inventory.dat file in my Data folder located my C: drive. However, when I review my General Output screen, I get this message:

Is this normal? Is the program saving correctly? I have no idea if it is because I don't know what program to use to open the inventory.dat file to check. When I click on it, the file opens in notepad and I get...

This does not look right; it looks very similar to what I get in the General Output screen. I was expecting to see a saved inventory list. Other than that, I believe I met the requirements of this assignment. If something is not working with the save feature, what is needed to correct the problem? Thanks everyone!

I modified the code some more by implementing the serialization to the Inventory and ProductModified class (I also implemented it in the Product class; however, I received the same output whether I implemented it or not. Therefore, took it out of the Product class).

Now, the inventory.dat file produced something different, which is:

"¬í sr InventoryQ‰%wñÍt D totalRestockL

It still looks kind of funny...is it suppose to look that way? I think it is suppose to look that way because in the past, I experimented on opening files with the wrong programs and I get something to that effect. Maybe I need to open it with another program other than notepad so it can be viewed better (I don't know of a program to open .dat files), or maybe the only way to view it correctly is if I had a Load feature in my Inventory Program; however, that's not required for this assignment (I might implement that feature later on after I submit this just because....).

Please someone let me know if everything is ok (and what program to use to view the .dat file correctly....if available).
