When I compile this code, I get an error - 'undefined variable this ' at the submitBtn.addActionListener(this).
Can anyone see what the problem is ?

That's because your method createPage1 is declared as static. Staic methods exist for all object instances, and have no "this".
It should work if you remove the "static".
