I have a JText field created

final JTextField curProject = new JTextField(20);

I am trying to assign a String value to that field?

curProject = currentProject.getName();

Type mismatch: cannot convert from String to JTextField

You cannot asign string to curProject bbecauise curProject is a JTextFiled and not a String, but you shoid use a method setText(String) which takes String as an argument

And you certainly can varioius listenes assigned to JTextField - like ActionnLustener whochj would listen for carriage return or KeyListener which would fire with any key typed, but this has no connecion to your type mmismatch situatin
