The following is what is diplayed after I compile my project and then try to run it. It will compile without any errors but when I press run this comes up.

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
at java.awt.Container.addImpl(
at java.awt.Container.add(
at MainPage.<init>(
at startApp.<init>(
at startApp.main(

Any help with how to fix it would be appreciated.
