I have four JText fields in my dialog.  I am not sure that the right thing is to have them has JText fields.  When the dialog is being created, those fields will get values from a different place.  The fields should not be editable

Right now I have final

final JTextField curProject = new JTextField(20);
final JTextField cur3dTrans = new JTextField(20);
final JTextField cur2dTrans = new JTextField(20);
final JTextField curEmails = new JTextField(20);

example would be something like this (not exactly right, but the value will come from a differernt place)

ediProject.getProjectName() = curProject

So I need to have a field with a value and non editable by the user
What is the best way to do this?

You dont need to have them final

JTextField cur2dTrans = new JTextField("your original text");
cur2dTrans.setEditable(false);

better make them instance variables:

public calss YurMainClass {
 JTextField curProject;

public YourMainClass(){
cur2dTrans = new JTextField("your original tracl");
cur2dTrans.setEditable(false);





}


public void actionPerformed (ActionEvent ae){
//create your dialog
//get Project say from this dialog

curProject = getProject();

cur2dTrans.setEditable(false);




}


}
