Help with a method

Hi everyone thanks for all your help. How would I get the method below into:
 else if (command.equals("fnew")) { Code below)


private void clear ()
{
int count = getComponentCount () ;
Component temp ;

for ( int i = 0 ; i < count ; i ++ )
{
temp = getComponent ( i ) ;

if ( temp instanceof JTextField )
( ( JTextField ) temp ).setText ( "" ) ;

else if ( temp instanceof JCheckBox )
( ( JCheckBox ) temp ).setSelected ( false ) ;

} // end for

} // end of clear ()

Call this clear () method wherever you want to.
}


public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
    String command = e.getActionCommand();
    if (command.equals("quit")) {
      YesNoDialog d = new YesNoDialog(this, "Really Quit?",
                                      "Are you sure you want to quit?",
                                      "Yes", "No", null);
      d.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
        public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
          if (e.getActionCommand().equals("yes")) System.exit(0);
          }
      });
      d.show();
    }
    else if (command.equals("fnew")) {
     
    }
    else if (command.equals("open")) {
      FileDialog d = new FileDialog(this, "Open File", FileDialog.LOAD);
      d.show();  // display the dialog and block until answered
            d.dispose();
    }
    else if (command.equals("save")) {
      FileDialog d = new FileDialog(this, "Save File", FileDialog.LOAD);
      d.show();  // display the dialog and block until answered
            d.dispose();
    }
    else if (command.equals("about")) {
      InfoDialog d = new InfoDialog(this, "About",
                                "This is Training Arts Program\n" +
                                "Copyright (c) 2004 Minor & Associates");
      d.show();
    }
  }

Directly start off by opening the TextArea.

When closing the window and/or when save is called....

      FileDialog d = new FileDialog(this, "Save File", FileDialog.LOAD);
      d.show();  // display the dialog and block until answered

You missed what I was trying to say. I need to get the clear method into the (command.equals("fnew")) { so I can clear all of the textlabels and ckeckboxs.

What is the main wrapper of your class
Is it is frames or panel.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Drop_of_Rain, you need to just call the method:

public class .... // the same class which has the actionPerformed () method
{
private void clear ()
{
int count = getComponentCount () ;
Component temp ;

for ( int i = 0 ; i < count ; i ++ )
{
temp = getComponent ( i ) ;

if ( temp instanceof JTextField )
( ( JTextField ) temp ).setText ( "" ) ;

else if ( temp instanceof JCheckBox )
( ( JCheckBox ) temp ).setSelected ( false ) ;

} // end for

} // end of clear ()

public void actionPerformed ( ActionEvent ae )
{
  .... // your existing code

  else if (command.equals("fnew")) {
     clear () ;      
    }

  .... // your existing code

} // end of actionPerformed ()

} // end of class

else if (command.equals("fnew")) {
     clear () ;      // ----> JUST CALL THE clear () METHOD - KEEP THE clear () METHOD INSIDE YOUR CLASS JUST LIKE ANY METHOD
    }

That's enough.

Keep the clear() method as private in your class.  Then call that method in this conditional check.

Thanks I thought that,  but I am just so unsure of myself at this point, I feel intimidated. This is the first program I have every writen. It is way over my head for a first.  I learn best by example, so I just went for it. I emailed you something.

Good. You should do that.

>> I emailed you something.

To me? I didn't get anything? Moreover, where did you get my e-mail ID from?

Mayank SAssociate Director - Product EngineeringCommented:
As a word of advice, generally, it is better to compare the source of the event rather than the action-command. Instead of doing:

>> String command = e.getActionCommand();
>> if (command.equals("quit")) {

You should do:

Object source = e.getSource () ;

if ( source == quitMenuItem ) {

- and so on....
