Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video Solution: GUI, part of Up and Running with Java.
- This last challenge was designed…to introduce you to the GUI Builder in NetBeans.…Let's take a look at one possible solution.…As you can see, in the left-hand side…I created a project called Programming Languages.…I have two files inside this project:…ProgrammingLanguages.java, which is my main…portion of my program, and LangaugesUI,…which is my form that you see in front of you.…The UI has two panels: one is called Name,…the other one Languages.…
In the Name panel I added a label for First Name,…a text field, another label for Last Name,…and another text field.…In the Languages Panel I have six check-boxes.…I chose to use check-boxes rather than radio buttons…because a user may have more than one skill…and know more than one language.…Finally, at the bottom I added an Exit button.…When I added all the fields and I added the exit button,…when I double-clicked on it, I was able to add my code…that says System.exit(0).…
That allows the user to press that button…and get out of the window.…Okay, before we run it, let's look…
