Hmmm you are defining here an instance of class Action called "a".
First of all you have to do this with:
  Action a = new Action();

Second, you are using the method getTextComponent(). Methods are part of a class, so you have to use a method on an instance of that class (or derived class when you use inheritance).
For example:
  String name;
  Student a = new Student();
  name = a.getStudentName();
  --> name = getStudentName()) will not work!

I hope this helped.

besides when you want to use something like this:
  a = getTextComponent().getActionMap().get("InsertHR");

then you have to be sure that  "getTextComponent().getActionMap().get("InsertHR")" is an Action, otherwise you have to cast it (when possible of course) to an Action
--> a = (Action)(getTextComponent().getActionMap().get("InsertHR"));

anywayz perhaps you should read a little about object oriented programming basics

First, unless you are extending the JHTML packages that you are using from source forge, you shouldn't be creating your own classes in that package.  This will lead to all sorts of confusion.

The first of your errors is occurring because the compiler can't find the Action class.  If this class is part of the same framework that you are using you might find that you are simply missing something like:

import net.sourceforge.jhtml.gui.editor.actions.Action;

from the beginning of the file.

As leeprovoost has pointed out, the getTextComponent() method needs to be called on an object, *unless* the current object implements this method.

Can you show me what are the things that I should have included in the file Action.java (import.net.sourceforge.jhtml.gui.editor.actions.Action;)?

Thank you.

I assume you're using the code from the JHTML project from sourceforge.

Which version are you using?  (The latest is 1.0pre6)

I've just downloaded 1.0pre5 - since 1.0pre6 has problems with the documentation.

There are several xxxAction classes in the release, but these all inherit from AbstractAction (not Action).

You seem to be missing a lot of information.  I don't think that I can help much at this stage.  Are you trying to extend the application?  If so, you would be better subscribing to the mailing lists for the project (see http://sourceforge.net/mail/?group_id=2588), or better yet, use the "contact me" link for the author from the project's home page (http://jhtml.sourceforge.net/).

>  a = getTextComponent().getActionMap().get("InsertHR");

You shouldn't be doing that. The action map will call this class to perform the action.
You need to implement the capability to insert hr here. ie. you have to actually insert the text into the current text windows document model.

jimmack's suggestion to post to their email list is a good one. They'll be far more familiar with the package.
