Making JTextField accept an INT?

Is this possible?

I'm trying to use the set text method to put an integer value in a JTextField and getting the incompatibility error, is this possible or is there another method I'm not aware of?

you could use:





myTextField.setText("" + myInt);

Some problems are so complex that you have to be highly intelligent and well informed just to be undecided about them. - Laurence J. Peter

You can use String.valueof(integer), or use java.text.DecimalFormat's format method if you want commas added: 12,333 etc...

There is no emoticon for what I am feeling!
I agree. Here's the link:
