Simple Applet Problem

Hello Experts;

I have a simple problem. I wrote an applet program which tries to parse a set of
array words. If found it will display an error screen but when I tried to run it, it
gives me a set of ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 5 errors.

Here is the codes :

b1.addActionListener(new ActionListener()  {
 
        public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent h)
      {  
            String x[] = {"Word","Word","Word","Word","Word"};
            int i;
            
            for (i=0; i<=x.length; i++ ) {
            if (t1.equals(""+x[i])) {      
            JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Your words are not allowed !",
            "Sorry . . .",JOptionPane.WARNING_MESSAGE);
            }
            }
      }
      });

Can anyone fix this for me, thanks.

should be

for (i=0; i<x.length; i++ ) {
0
 
CEHJCommented:
Word=0
Word=1
Word=2
Word=3
Word=4

length is equal to 5 (there is no element with index 5)

Tried it but did not worked.

Here's my code :

import javax.swing.*;
import java.applet.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import java.awt.*;

public class JGuestBook extends JApplet {
      
      private JTextField t1;
      private JTextArea t2;

      public void init () {
      
      JDesktopPane x1 = new JDesktopPane();
      t1 = new JTextField("1.) Enter name here . . .");
      t2 = new JTextArea("2.) Enter comments here . . .");
      
      JButton b1 = new JButton(" Sign My Guestbook ");
      JButton b2 = new JButton(" Clear ");
      JPanel p1 = new JPanel();
      
      p1.add(b1); p1.add(b2);
      
      JInternalFrame f1 = new JInternalFrame("JGuestBook v 1.0 . . .",false,false,true,true);

      Container c = f1.getContentPane();
      c.add( new JScrollPane(t2) );
      c.add(t1, BorderLayout.NORTH);
      c.add(p1, BorderLayout.SOUTH);
      f1.setSize(300, 250);
      f1.setVisible(true);
      x1.add(f1);
      
      this.getContentPane().add(x1, BorderLayout.CENTER);
      
      b1.addActionListener(new ActionListener()  {
 
        public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent h)
      {  
            String x[] = {"Word","Word","Word","Word","Word"};
            int i;
            
            for (i=0; i<x.length; i++ ) {
            if (t1.equals(""+x[i])) {      
            JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Bad words not allowed !",
            "Sorry . . .",JOptionPane.WARNING_MESSAGE);
            }
            }
      }
      });
      
      b2.addActionListener(new ActionListener()  {
 
        public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent h)
      {  
            t1.setText("");
            t2.setText("");
      }
      });
      }
}

The reason for the index out of bounds was as i gave.

Lets say :

String x[] = {"Word1","Word2","Wor3","Wor4","Wor5"};

For example I put a "Word1" on my JTextfield and pressed my
b1 button it should display a JOption Warning Message
but it does not show the warning.

Id this wrong ?

 if (t1.equals(""+x[i])) {    
          JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Bad words not allowed !",
          "Sorry . . .",JOptionPane.WARNING_MESSAGE);
          }

>> if (t1.equals(""+x[i])) {    

should be

 if (t1.getText().equals(x[i])) {    

t1 is a JTextField - it can't be equal to a String. There is no need to add the String in the array to an empty String
