Simple Java Error

What is wrong with the following Line ??? I know its something simple.... Can anyone help me out. Thanx guys

void jButton1_actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
     pageTA.setFont(new java.awt.Font(jComboBox1.getSelectedItem().toString(),jComboBox2.getSelectedItem().toString(),Integer.parseInt(jSpinner1.getValue().toString())));

I get the following error

"": cannot resolve symbol: constructor Font (java.lang.String,java.lang.String,int)in class java.awt.Font at line 347, column 24

My first combo box has the fonts name,  2nd combo box has the style (BOLD,PLAIN) ect, and the spinner acts as the size of the fonts.

When I run this everything works fine except the STYLE and I want to include that in the project

void jButton1_actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
          pageTA.setFont(new java.awt.Font(jComboBox1.getSelectedItem().toString(),java.awt.Font.PLAIN,Integer.parseInt(jSpinner1.getValue().toString())));


Thank You Marcin

I aslo have question about JSpinner .... How do you set the value for it so it dosen't start at 0 ... It will start at 10.

The second parameter of the Font contructor is an integer primitive, but you pass in a String:


You will have to convert your String to an integer first.
You can do it this way:

void jButton1_actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
  int style = Font.PLAIN;
  String selectedStyle = jComboBox2.getSelectedItem().toString();
  if (selectedStyle.equalsIgnoreCase("BOLD")) {
    style = Font.BOLD;
  } else if (selectedStyle.equalsIgnoreCase("ITALIC")) {
    style = Font.ITALIC;
   pageTA.setFont(new java.awt.Font(jComboBox1.getSelectedItem().toString(), style,Integer.parseInt(jSpinner1.getValue().toString())));

Thenx alot that worked !!!!!


Do you know how to change the value on the jSpinner so i dosn't start at 0.

>> I aslo have question about JSpinner .... How do you set the value for it so it dosen't start at 0 ... It will start at 10.

jSpinner1.getModel().setValue(new Integer(10));

I'm missing an  identifier

jSpinner1.getModel().setValue(new Integer(10));

"": <identifier> expected at line 46, column 21

Were the setValue is ???
You can also set the initial value when you contruct your JSpinner. The following example uses the SpinnerNumberModel. The spinner will have a minimum value of 0 and a maximum value of 100. The initial value is set to 10, and the step size is 1.

jSpinner1 = new JSpinner(new SpinnerNumberModel(10, 0, 100, 1));

You could store the following in the combobox:
new Integer(Font.BOLD),
new Integer(Font.PLAIN),
in that combo box instead of integers.

Then you could pass
as second parameter.

Of course then you need to define a simple ListCellRenderer for your combo box to display the right strings for the style.
Something like

public class StyleListCellRenderer extends JLabel implements ListCellRenderer {
    public StyleStateListCellRenderer() {
    public java.awt.Component getListCellRendererComponent(javax.swing.JList list,
                                                                                        Object value,
                                      int index,
                                                                                        boolean isSelected,
                                                                                        boolean cellHasFocus) {
        if  (value == null)
        else {
                   switch ( ((Integer)value).intValue() ) {
              case Font.BOLD :
              case Font.PLAIN :
                        case default:
        setBackground(isSelected ?
                      list.getSelectionBackground() : list.getBackground());
        setForeground(isSelected ?
                      list.getSelectionForeground() : list.getForeground());
        return this;        

activate it by
              ComboBox2.setRenderer(new StyleListCellRenderer());

For your spinner to start at 10:
                            mySpinner.setValue(new Integer(10));
