I don't see anything GUI related in the code you posted. Perhaps you mean that you aren't aware of how to create a GUI? If that's so, you need to go through the Swing tutorial systematically.

And welcome to the Ranch!


luck, db

Hi there Habtamu:

If you only need a calendar, maybe this code can help you, but is Java SWT.

Check this snippet:

I would suggest you need to go back to creating an EthiopianCalendar class and running it fom the command line before you try it in a GUI. It would appear from this that there is nothing available, but Googling for Java Ethiopian calendar, and this ad from Google might give you something to use instead.

I would suggest for your class, it looks confusing having that many fields. You should consider an enum for Ethiopian months instead of that switch block. You should avoid if (...) b = true; else b = false; It is bad style; see this link. It is also bad style and error prone to write == true or similar.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
