I'm doin a Calendaer Planner application whereby user have to enter the Year & select the Month from drop-down list and follows by clicking on the New Calendar button.. doin so, the no. of days would then appear in a JList.. ( As u know, different months, have different no. of days ) therefore i'm not too sure if what i did is correct becos it can't be compile..
The Errors is ~
D: AppointmentPage.java:121: cannot resolve symbol

location: class javax.swing.JList
Daylist = new JList(noOfDays);
^
I putting up my source code.. Please help me.. Thanks alot..

The JList constructor takes an Array of Objects, you try to give it an array of int. Variables of type int are _not_ Objects (this holds for all primitive data types in java), therefore this doesn't work. You can use an array of Strings instead, like here:

Good luck! BTW, please change your profile and use a real name.

Hi, thanks very much..
I have some questions again.. the solution u have got me i did try before.. And i know i can't use that.. becos that one would display fixed values.. as what stated here.. it would appear to have 0 1 2 3..
String[] noOfDaysforList = {"0", "1", "2", "3"};
The thing is for this, i can't display fixed values, the application has to go into a IF statement & a FOR loop to display the no. of days according to the Month selected.. becos i have like eg. JANUARY are to display 1 2 3 ..... 31 then April to display 1 2 3 ...... 30 .. And i'm not too sure what to put in the brackets of the
Daylist = new JList(noOfDaysforList);
for it to be able to read whatever values from the IF statement to display..

Freya,
Welcome to Javaranch! You'll find this place is great to learn Java and we don't have too many rules, but we do have a Naming Policy. You'll need to change your display name so that you are truly a part of our community.
You can change your display name here.
Thanks. Hope to see you around.

Here's something that might make getting the days of the month displayed a
bit easier than the way you're trying to do it now - look for setDays().

in your constructor
1)
...
contentPane.add(jcbMonth);
contentPane.add(jcbYear);
contentPane.add(showButton);
contentPane.add(scrollPane);
pack(); //<--------------------------remove this line
setDays();
...
2)
include this line

the year values are set here - adjust the upper limit of x
for(int x = 0; x < 20; x++) {
if(x < 12) jcbMonth.addItem(months[x]);
jcbYear.addItem(""+(x+2004)); //<--------------

Sorry.. from what u have given me the coding for the "daylist".. the next thing i need to do is that i have to display a "appointment" (save in text file according to the "date;month;year;time;appoointment") that user key in.. like:
1) user select year (eg. 2004) & month (eg. January) then show days in JList..
2) user then can select a date (eg. 17)
3) then the appointment saved in the text file under (17;January;2004) would then display the Time & appointment in textbox.
From my logic, i know i have to check if the date, month & year is valid before displaying the appointment..

* the problem now is that i have try serveral time in how to display the appointment accordingly but i kept failing.. Can u help me on this..? Really appreciate ur help.. need a reply asap.. Thanks

Here's an (almost) totally reworked way of doing what I *think* you're trying to do - modify to suit.
It shows one way of saving/retreiving appointment data.
(note: this will create directories and files)
I'll leave it to you to work out how it works. It is not complete - needs
additional error-handling, 'clean-up' code to delete old files etc.

Hi Mr Michael Dunn,
actually after reading through the code u have given me, i don't quite understand most of it.. it's too difficult for me to understand (mayb it's becos i'm just a year 1 student).. i'm so sorry.. i have only :
1) 2 JComboBox (jcbMonth & jcbYear)
2) 1 JList(daylist)
3) 1 button (showappointment)
4) 3 textbox (dayInput(for dd/mm/yyyy), timeInput & appInput)
i need to display the appointment according to the "jcbMonth" selected, the "jcbYear" selected & the "daylist" selected.. when everything is ok, user click on button "showappointment", it would then display the appointment in the "appInput".. the time in "timeInput" & "the day,month,year" selected in the "dayInput..
*PS: i know u have put in effort to help.. pls continue to help me..
Thanks..

I'm having trouble trying to follow how you intend retrieving the appointment data
eg this line in your file
28;August;2004;12.0;AM; Birthday
are you just using a 'next' button, and showing each appointment?
are they saved in date/time order?
perhaps if you posted your current code, I might follow it a bit better.
In my previous code, select a year, a month, a day, and a time
add appointment data to the JTextArea, then click the save button.
If you want to see the appointments for a particular day, again, select
a year, a month, and a day, then click the list button and any appointments
for that day will be listed in the JTextArea.

This is correct :
"If you want to see the appointments for a particular day, again, select
a year, a month, and a day, then click the "Find App" button and any appointments for that day will be listed in the JTextArea. "
My codes:


My Enter new Appointment page (for ur reference):


Really need this ugently... Thanks alot.. appreciate ur help so much..

Hi Mr Michael Dunn..
i finally understood the code u have given me earlier on..
Yes, u have got what i wanted.. Thank u so much.. the only thing is that i dun need to have a dropdown list for the Time.. (i will excluded that in my program)
I have few qns to ask:
1) As i'm goin to retrieve the data from TextFile named ("Appointment.txt"), therefore where should i insert the file name.. is it like this..?

or

2) And i'm afraid i dun quite understand this statement, can u explain to me what is this used for..?

3) The "Save" Button, i intendted to change it to "Update" Button (for user to edit the info straight from the textbox and update it).. From what i know i dun have to change much things to make it update right ? if i'm wrong, pls correct me.. Thanks..

Thanks alot...

Note that when you put code in [code] tags, no line breaks will be insterted. So if you make a really long line, it will force the whole page to be really wide to contain it, which makes the page harder to read for all the other text. That's what's happened to this page. You can edit your previous posts to break up the long lines inside [code] tags, that should help. But you hav eto fix all of them. If just one really long line remains, it will still force the whole page to be really wide.
As for the content of this thread... this is a semester project for school, right? Generally that means you're expected to do most of the work yourself. The other posters here should probably avoid giving too much code, and instead just give suggestions that will help. I know it seems like a lot of work to sort through all these issues in the time you have, but that's what a programming assignment is about - learning these things by doing them yourself.
Good luck...

See if this is a bit closer to what you want. I combined the time and AM/PM
e.g.
1;January;2004;1.0;PM;break
becomes
1;January;2004;1.0 PM;break //space between 1.0 and PM

Michael, you have been a great help to Freya and I'm sure that he really appreciates it. But we need to let students complete their own homework. Guiding him is good and teaching, but giving a solution, well, that we just cannot have. Remember, Freya is getting the grade and credit here, not you. I let the first one slide because I felt it was less complete than this one.
Thanks again for helping out.
