Dear Experts,
I have a JDialog and want to call the JDialog using getConstructor. I am unable to pass String array to the constructor and system is giving error like
"java.lang.NoSuchMethodException: guestName.<init>(java.lang.Integer, java.lang.String, boolean, java.awt.Frame)
      at java.lang.Class.getConstructor0"
I want to pass Integer,String Array, Boolean and Frame. I do require your help know what I should class should I declare to pass an array of String[][]. The sintex which I used is as under

String guestName2[][] = {{"A","0","B"},{"C","1","D"}}; //,{"E","2","F"},{"G","3","H"}};
int gc = Integer.parseInt(Guest_text.getText());
String retv = "guestName";
try {
Class cl = Class.forName(retv);
Constructor constructor =  cl.getConstructor(new Class[] {Integer.class, String.class, boolean.class, Frame.class});
Object invoker = constructor.newInstance(new Object[]{gc, guestName2, true, (new javax.swing.JFrame())});
}

guestName2 is an two dimensional array.

try this:

public class GuestName extends JDialog {
    private Integer yourInt;
    private String[][] yourArray;

    public GuestName(Integer yourInt, String[][] yourArray, Frame owner, boolean modal) throws HeadlessException {
        super(owner, modal);
        this.yourInt = yourInt;
        this.yourArray = yourArray;
    }
}

Dear Valery,

Thanks for fast response.

I have two seperate JDialog
1> newGuest and 2> guestName

I want to call guestName from newGuest

guestName constructor is having 4 arguments
          public guestName(int gn,String guestName1[][], boolean modal, java.awt.Frame parent)

From newGest, I am calling guestName as below

String guestName2[][] = {{"A","0","B"},{"C","1","D"}}; //,{"E","2","F"},{"G","3","H"}};
int gc = Integer.parseInt(Guest_text.getText());
String retv = "guestName";
try {
Class cl = Class.forName(retv);
Constructor constructor =  cl.getConstructor(new Class[] {Integer.class, String.class, boolean.class, Frame.class});
Object invoker = constructor.newInstance(new Object[]{gc, guestName2, true, (new javax.swing.JFrame())});
}

I am getting error as
java.lang.NoSuchMethodException: guestName.<init>(java.lang.Integer, [[Ljava.lang.String;, boolean, java.awt.Frame)
      at java.lang.Class.getConstructor0(Class.java:2706)

Please give your inputs.
Regards

Why? Why are you using reflection?

I can't really, since you don't give your GOAL
Gernerally speaking, reflection should only be used for very specialized purposes

Then all you need to do is to provide a constructor in your JDialog subclass that accepts the required parameters.

java.lang.NoSuchMethodException: guestName.<init>(java.lang.Integer, [[Ljava.lang.String;, boolean, java.awt.Frame)

What you should be doing is something like this:

MySecondDialog d = new MySecondDialog(someStringArray, true, someFrame);

Open in new window

(Obviously you will need to create a JDialog subclass to do that)

Hei Milind,
CEHJ is right, don't use reflection! Use the classes in this way (I created some for you)

import javax.swing.*;

public class JFrameTester {

      public static void main(String[] args) {
        JFrame f = new JFrame("your JFrame");
        f.setSize(400, 400);
        f.setLocation(300,200);
        f.setVisible(true);

        String guestName2[][] = {{"A","0","B"},{"C","1","D"}}; //,{"E","2","F"},{"G","3","H"}};

        NewGuest newGuest = new NewGuest(f, false, 5, guestName2);
        newGuest.setSize(250, 250);
        newGuest.setVisible(true);

        newGuest.showGuestNname();  

      }
}

=============================================================

import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;

public class NewGuest extends JDialog {
    private Integer yourInt;
    private String[][] guestName2;
    private Frame owner;

    public NewGuest(Frame owner, boolean modal, Integer yourInt, String[][] guestName2) throws HeadlessException {
        super(owner, modal);
        this.owner = owner;
        this.yourInt = yourInt;
        this.guestName2 = guestName2;
    }

    public void showGuestNname() {
        GuestName guestName = new GuestName(owner, false, 5, guestName2);
        guestName.setSize(150, 150);
        guestName.setVisible(true);
    }
}

=======================================================

import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;

public class GuestName extends JDialog {
    private Integer yourInt;
    private String[][] guestName2;

    public GuestName(Frame owner, boolean modal, Integer yourInt, String[][] guestName2) throws HeadlessException {
        super(owner, modal);
        this.yourInt = yourInt;
        this.guestName2 = guestName2;
    }
}

then start the first class! forget about reflection, it's for other purposes.
