Hey friends?! How ya'll doin' today? I'm great. So I got me my applet here and it creates a bunch of Checkbox objects using a FOR loop and such; each Checkbox is created by the following code:
Whereas a is an Object of type Words:
But I create these, and then I can't do a cb1.getState() or anything... (Which I need to do.) I've tried some tricky clauses in my event handler, but nothing works. Is there anyway to create a bunch of Objects (the exact number is varying), using a loop, or a new class definition, so that each one has a handle? OR..Getting creative: Is there any "master command" that contains The_first_checkbox_this_program_created, The_second, etc... I need handles to my objects.. please help..
Hi Robbie, Yes, indeed: use an array of Checkboxes. I'm not sure why you have to ask this as you've already got arrays of words here... Anyway, you can initialize the array using "new" like Checkbox checks = new Checkbox[a.len()]; and then use checks for the first Checkbox, checks to hold the second, etc. In your create loop you should assign each Checkbox to one array element, of course.
