JAVA Swing textField creating function

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I have an assignment requiring the use of lots of textboxes using the java Swing library. Unfortunatly the code to create textfeilds is quite long winded. I would like to be able to call a function

textField(name, grid1);

which then goes and runs a function

public void textField(JTextField text, JPanel gridName){
        text = new JTextField(32);

however the function doesnt like the line textField(name, grid1); giving the error 'name has private access in component'.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?

Is name local? Or is it declared in private in another class?

If so, you need to add a getter in that other class

Name is meant to be a string, but it wont convert string to JTextField
