Hello,

private JButton Clear;
private static JTextArea  sqlQuery;

Clear                      = new JButton("Clear Query");
sqlQuery             = new JTextArea();
jsp2                         = new JScrollPane ( sqlQuery, ScrollPaneConstants.VERTICAL_SCROLLBAR_ALWAYS, ScrollPaneConstants.HORIZONTAL_SCROLLBAR_ALWAYS ) ;

add(Clear);
add(jsp2);

Clear.setBounds                  (860, 650, 120, 20);
jsp.setBounds                      (20, 35, 250, 600);

class selectionListener implements ActionListener{
            public void actionPerformed (ActionEvent e) {

///other events

else if (e.getSource().equals(Clear))
                {
                        sqlQuery.setText("");
                }


I also tried using null istead of "" inside the paranthesis, but that didnt work.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks
