Hi all. I am working on a server program that has a GUI. I created the server code in a separate class that is in herited by a thread initiated by a button in the GUI. I would like to bounce text messages back from the server class to the GUI (and display them in a JText control)- is this possible? I tried passing the GUI class in the server class' constructor, but this just creates a new instance of the GUI class- the original GUI's public functions do not perform actions on the GUI window. Is there an elegant way around this? Thanks a lot!

Ben
