hi,
Code follows like this. Doubt at @line 1
import java.awt.*
import java.awt.event.*
class TestAwt extends Frame implements ActionListener
{
Panel p1,p2;
Button b1,b2,b3;
TestAwt()
{
p1 = new Panel();
p2 = new Panel();
b1 = new Button("One");
b2 = new Button("Two");
b3 = new Button("Three");
setLayout(new BorderLayout());
add(p1,"North");
add(p2,"South");
p1.setLayout(new FlowLayout());
p1.add(b1);
p1.add(b2);
b1.addActionListener(this);
setvisible(true);
}
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
{
if(e.getSource() == b1)
{
p2.add(b3);
b3.setvisible(true); // line 1
}
}
public static void main(String []arg)
{
new TestAwt();
}
};
my question is at line 1. Everything functions properly and also displays button "Three" when i click on button "One". But actually the button is seen when i maximmize or minimize the window.
I want to show the button when i clicked on the button "One".
thanks in advance

I couldnt get your code to compile, so i made a minor alteration to your main and to the line one. You need to use setVisible() not setvisible().
secondly i added in validate(); after u add that component.
here is the adjusted source code
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
class TestAwt extends Frame implements ActionListener
{
Panel p1,p2;
Button b1,b2,b3;
TestAwt()
{
p1 = new Panel();
p2 = new Panel();
b1 = new Button("One");
b2 = new Button("Two");
b3 = new Button("Three");
setLayout(new BorderLayout());
add(p1,"North");
add(p2,"South");
p1.setLayout(new FlowLayout());
p1.add(b1);
p1.add(b2);
b1.addActionListener(this);
}
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
{
if(e.getSource() == b1)
{
p2.add(b3);
validate();
b3.setVisible(true); // line 1
}
}
public static void main(String []arg)
{
Frame f = new TestAwt();
f.setVisible(true);
f.setSize(400,400);
}
};

Another solution is to put in a pack(); statement at the end of your actionPerformed() method. That will re-calculate the size of each component, panel, and the whole frame. Your problem was NOT that it wasn't there, it was just in RAM. You needed to get it on the screen.
Also, it would be a good idea to use a pack() at the end of your constructor, so that you get the preferred size of the components.

Not looking good. I think this might be the end. Wait! Is that a tiny ad?
