Here is a complete program that shows how, when a button is pressed, that the information is read from the text field and displayed in a JOptionPane.

Fundamentally, a Java ActionListener object is added to the button. At the place in the code where the ActionListener is added to the button, the ActionListerer object has access to the TextField object. Hence, the ActionListerer object can read the text that exists in the TextField object.

Code: Select all

import java.awt.EventQueue;
import java.awt.GridLayout;
import java.awt.event.ActionEvent;
import java.awt.event.ActionListener;

import javax.swing.JButton;
import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
import javax.swing.JPanel;
import javax.swing.JTextField;

public class Window {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        EventQueue.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
            public void run() {
                final JFrame frame = new JFrame();

                JPanel panel = new JPanel(new GridLayout(2, 1));
                JButton button = new JButton("Press Me");
                final JTextField textfield = new JTextField(25);

                button.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
                    @Override public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
                        JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(frame, textfield.getText(), "Message", JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE);

How to disable the Java Runtime error messages saying to debug? On one of the Google sites my volunteer group uses, I constantly get about 7 Java Runtime error messages asking me if I want to debug. It is extremely annoying, and I'd like to know how to disable this feature.
