Hi experts,

I need code for the following:
I have a textfield and two buttons. One button should be expect an integer from the text field (between 1-99) and when pressed it changes an integer variable.
the other button should expect a String and then change the "name" variable

thanks


also if anyone can help me with this question I accidently forgot to place it in the java topic area:

By heart:

button1.addActionListener( new ActionListener() {
   public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent evt) {
       integerVariable = Integer.parse(textField.getText());
   }
});

button2.addActionListener( new ActionListener() {
   public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent evt) {
       name = textField.getText();
   }
});

Sorry:

button1.addActionListener( new ActionListener() {
   public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent evt) {
       try {
          integerVariable = (Integer.valueOf(textField.getText())).intValue();
       } catch (NuberFormatException ex) { }
   }
});

>> between 1-99
Of course you can check for that...

button1.addActionListener( new ActionListener() {
   public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent evt) {
       try {
          int tmp = (Integer.valueOf(textField.getText())).intValue();
          if (tmp>0 && tmp<100)
              integerVariable = tmp;
          else
              // You say it ;°)
       } catch (NuberFormatException ex) { }
   }
});

Try this code:


  void jButton4_actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
  {
    int thisVal = Integer.parseInt(jTextField1.getText());
    int myValu = 0;
   
    if( thisVal >= 1 || thisVal <= 99)
    {
      myValu = thisVal;
    }
  }

  void jButton5_actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
  {
    boolean isName = false;
    String name = "";
   
    //-- check whether this string contains A-Z, a-z and white space and dot.
    for(int i = 0; i < jTextField1.getText().length(); i++)
    {
      System.out.println("(int)jTextField1.getText().charAt(i) = " +
                       (int)jTextField1.getText().charAt(i));
     
   
      //** count number of Dots
       if(((int)jTextField1.getText().charAt(i) >= 65 && (int)jTextField1.getText().charAt(i) <= 90 ) //** A-Z
          ||((int)jTextField1.getText().charAt(i) >= 97 && (int)jTextField1.getText().charAt(i) <= 122 ) //** a-z
          ||((int)jTextField1.getText().charAt(i) == 46) //** equal to dot.
          ||((int)jTextField1.getText().charAt(i) == 32)) //** equal to white space
       {
         isName = true;
       }
       else
       {
           isName = false;
       }
    }

    if(isName)
      name = jTextField1.getText();
  }



bye.

Allow me to correct:

1)
  void jButton4_actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
  {
     try {                                                  // <<<<<<<< try/catch needed
         int thisVal = Integer.parseInt(jTextField1.getText());
         if( thisVal >= 1 && thisVal <= 99)    // <<<<<<  && instead of ||
            myValu = thisVal;
     } catch (NumberFormatException ex) {
     }
  }

  Remark: I don't see the added value compared with my previous comment


2)
If you want to check if the string only contains A-Z, a-z, spaces and dots, you can better do this:

void jButton5_actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {

    if ( jTextField1.getText().matches("([A-Za-z \\.])+?") )
      name = jTextField1.getText();
}

That's the power of regular expressions!
