passing info from dialog
Posted on 1998-06-16
Im writing a graphing program that has default headings when the user starts the program. I wanted to give the
user the ability to change the heading text if they so desired.
So I created a series of menu selections to allow the user to change the text of the various headings.
When the user selects one of these menu selections (say the main heading) a dialog box appears asking for
the text of the new heading.
There is also an OK and a CANCEL button on the dialog box...
My problem is how do I send the info that is entered in the textfield back to the original frame so I can call the appropriate method to erase the main heading and draw the new one
And do I need to use the AWTEventMulticaster to assign all the events to the dialog itself (instead of the components in it) and go from there?
I can produce some code to look at if need be however it is fairly long and its kind of a generic question.
Also does anyone know where I can find some freeware classes for graphing or better yet just some algorithms so i dont have to "reinvent the wheel"? (I know this is really a separate question but i thought if someone knew of a site off the top of their head... I suppose I would learn a lot more if i did it myself.. although it probably wouldnt be the most efficient way)
Thanks in advance
