Hey everyone,
I have a small problem, not that big, but i would like to get the correct solution.
I have passed this small test, but i want to make it better, for my own sake.
My problem is that I have a program that has a frame with a text field and 2 buttons Convert and Clear[B].
the program takes a string sentence, without digits or punctuation and only converts strings to morse code. The validation is fine and the conversion goes according to plan.
But when the [B]Clear
button is pressed, i would like the text field to clear of its contents and be ready for new output.
At the moment I just call the GUI constructor again, which is not what i want.
I have got the listners in and they are fine.
I looked at the API but could not find something to clear the text and have the field ready for new input.

Davy
