I want to handle an array of JTextFields to insert in to a TextArea when a given button is pushed.

I'm having problems conceptually getting my head around how to make my application work.

I have 15 JTextField components and 15 JButton components and 1 JTextArea. I want each button to insert the text inside the textarea from each corresponding textfield.

If you wish to see a graphic to explain this setup -http://i.imgur.com/Vnc3C.png

I've managed to get frame.finaltext to the Curriculum subject class, but it is not seen inside the actionPerformed method.

What is the best way of getting a hold of frame.finaltext.append(textfields[i])

TIA
Adam
