Hi everyone, I didnt know if this is more appropriate to I/O, Swing or where, so I thought I'd post here. I am trying to populate a TextArea component from a text file. I seem to be getting some errors. How would u do it? Some suggestions please. Regards Ian my code so far.
This compiles and runs, but doent populate the TextArea component? [ April 22, 2002: Message edited by: Dirk Schreckmann ]
Hello Ian, It works for me as well after I make the necessary changes to get it to compile.
Are you certain that it is finding the file you are specifying? If you are and it still doesn't work for you, what happens if you place the file in the same directory as your compiled class file(s) and if you create your FileReader accordingly: FileReader charRead = new FileReader("TestText.txt"); Does it still not work? Good Luck.
