Hi everyone, My requirement is to accept user input(say from a textfield) which contains the time offset(with respect to GMT) and add/subtract it to the local date to generate a new date.The question is:
1.If am using a textfield to accept the input,then i can get the data with getText() mthd in JTextField.But the arg for the add() mthd in calender takes integer values to be added. How to bring about the conversion from String<->int?
2.How do I accept user input if i dont use a textfield?
can anyone please suggest how to go about this? Thanks, Thejaswini.
here's a general routine, but note the format is yyyy/MM/dd and a date like 05/1/1 will pass, even though the format might not be acceptable elsewhere in your program - if so, you may have to include a length() test.
it is always easier to use a DatePicker - search this site, google etc
