I have submitted this before and decided to play and modify it again. I have added an exit button to it and it seems I did everything correctly. But, there's always a but, I can't see the exit button in the window when I run it. can someone please help me find out what in the world I forgot. Maybe it is to many kids and easter candu but I am at a loss. Please any help would be great!!!! Thanks in advance.

Do not add the components to a Container, but to a JPanel, which in turn is added to the Container.

More or less independent of this, replace:

    setSize(getPreferredSize());

by:

    pack();

Here is the solution to your problem :


public void init()
   {
      MortgageCalculator2Layout customLayout = new MortgageCalculator2Layout();

      Container con = getContentPane();
      con.setFont(new Font("Helvetica", Font.PLAIN, 12));
      con.setLayout(customLayout);

      label_1 = new JLabel("Loan Amount");
      con.add(label_1);

      label_2 = new JLabel("Interest Rate");
      con.add(label_2);

      label_3 = new JLabel("Term");
      con.add(label_3);

      textfield_1 = new JTextField("");
      con.add(textfield_1);

      textfield_2 = new JTextField("");
      con.add(textfield_2);

      textfield_3 = new JTextField("");
      con.add(textfield_3);

      calculate = new JButton("Calculate");
      con.add(calculate);

      label_4 = new JLabel("Payment");
      con.add(label_4);

      start_Over = new JButton("Start Over");
      con.add(start_Over);

      label_5 = new JLabel("$ ");
      con.add(label_5);

      exit_Exit = new JButton("Exit1");
      con.add(exit_Exit);

      label_6 = new JLabel("Exit");
      con.add(label_6);

      setSize(getPreferredSize());



You have created local variables for Exit and others whereas you also have class variables declared. Change all to class variables as shown above.




Now here is what is preventing the Exit button from being displayed :


You have implemented the public void layoutContainer(Container parent) method - but in this you have added only 10 entries

Your exit button is your eleventh component, for which you need another entry in the public void layoutContainer.


Add this in the layout container at the bottom :

c = parent.getComponent(10);
         if (c.isVisible())
         {
            c.setBounds(insets.left + 112, insets.top + 220, 112, 24);
         }

Though sciuri has given you good advice, thats not the issue you are facing - the issue is because you have not set the layoutContainer correctly.

As you have already done all the code, I am pasting in the working version of the code as per my above comments

Make sure you implement the Exit action listener correctly

keyurkarnik,
Got it and I see what I forgot.....but here is a question. The exit button only clears the solution not exit the program. What did I forget?

sciuriware,
So, is it possible to use an exit command in this program or do I have to change everything? I've tried a few things and nothing seems to work.

Try this, or just set the visible attribute to false or something. You cannot call system.exit thats for sure
