            List.setSize(1025,768);
            List.setLocation(FRAME_X_ORIGIN, FRAME_Y_ORIGIN);
            List.setVisible(true);
            setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.DISPOSE_ON_CLOSE);
            dispose();

Firstly I would not use the name 'List'. There is already a name conflict in Java caused by carelessness by Sun - you don't want to make it worse. You mean you want to click on a button and show a list of votes in another window?

I want to click on a button and show the List.java..that all..

CEHJCommented:
You need to have

public MyList() {
    super();
}

in MyList (or whatever name you change it to from 'List')

In the following, you need to change 'List' to 'vote'
>>
          List.setSize(1025,768);
          List.setLocation(FRAME_X_ORIGIN, FRAME_Y_ORIGIN);
          List.setVisible(true);

You also need to define that constructor in VoteDialog in the same way.

I said to change 'List' to 'vote'. You changed it to 'Vote'

ok..I had changed the constructor and the "Vote" to vote but it is still not working..
My coding:
      if(event.getSource() == voteButton)
            {
                  VoteDialog vote =new VoteDialog();    
                  vote.setSize(1025,768);
                  vote.setLocation(FRAME_X_ORIGIN, FRAME_Y_ORIGIN);
                  vote.setVisible(true);
                  setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.DISPOSE_ON_CLOSE);
                  dispose();
                        
            }

this error is shown:
C:\Documents and Settings\JL\Desktop\Java\Character.java:301: cannot resolve symbol
symbol  : constructor VoteDialog ()
location: class VoteDialog
                  VoteDialog vote =new VoteDialog();    
                                         ^

>>ok..I had changed the constructor

You can't have done, as it's saying that there is no such constructor

The constructor for VoteDialog.class :
 public VoteDialog(JFrame frame) {
          super();
          
        this.frame = frame;
        JLabel title;    
}

The constructor for Character.class :
      public Character(){
            super();
            Container contentPane;
}

What I want is to be able to link from my Character.class to VoteDialog.class

CEHJCommented:
Yes - as i said you have no constructor VoteDialog().

You also should not have a class called Character as that too could get you into naming conflicts

aaabbaaaAuthor Commented:
//Yes - as i said you have no constructor VoteDialog().-->so u mean I am right in my constructor now?

I created a button in Character.class and want to use it to link to VoteDialog.class so I need my Character.class..

this error is shown:
C:\Documents and Settings\JL\Desktop\Java\Character.java:301: cannot resolve symbol
symbol  : constructor VoteDialog ()
location: class VoteDialog
               VoteDialog vote =new VoteDialog();

I've already told you the reason for that error more than once before

You said I have no constructor on my VoteDialog but
isn't this a constructor from VoteDialog.class?:

Public VoteDialog ()  {
...
}
0
 
CEHJCommented:
Well

public VoteDialog ()  {
...
}

would be one, but i saw no sign of it in the code you posted and the error messages indicate its absence

                  setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.DISPOSE_ON_CLOSE);
                  dispose();
                        
            }

I am typing this codes out in Character.class under actionPerform because I wanted to link to VoteDialog.class through the "voteButton".I had already added super(); into both the .class constructors but it still can't work??

how come the error message indicated it is absence when i had already had right in the top??
Please advise.Thanks

>>VoteDialog vote =new VoteDialog();    

That only shows an empty constructor being called, it doesn't show it's present

aaabbaaaAuthor Commented:
But I had already coded it y does it not present??

What should I do now?

CEHJCommented:
Please show, in context, where it appears in your code

aaabbaaaAuthor Commented:
This is where my constructor for VoteDialog shows:
public class VoteDialog extends JPanel {
     JButton voteButton;
    JLabel label;
    JFrame frame;
    String simpleDialogDesc = "The Polythenics";

       DataBase db = new DataBase();
    Connection connection = db.getConnection();
   
      private boolean DEBUG = true;

    public VoteDialog(JFrame frame) {
          super();
          
        this.frame = frame;
        JLabel title;    
       
 This is where the constructor for Character.class shows:
      public Character(){
            super();
            Container contentPane;
            
            
            // set frame properties
