I cannot do a setText in my program. There is no compilation error.

There are some String and integer being parsed from another class. the parsing part is ok. i've checked using System.out.println.

So using the value that is parsed, I cannot do a setText to my label. y?

I already found out. D setText function if put in d listener class, and create a refresh button to call it, the setText works. I should say tt d setText method can b called from d main consructor or listener class and not from other class. Any idea how to do this?
