View Full Version : Java GUI Help
April 3rd, 2007, 05:51 AM
I've never really done much with GUIs in general and I'm especially rusty in java. I've searched through the java docs site, but it left me a little confused with references to 'java web start' and other things. If I have a just an empty frame up, how do I add a bar at the top (like the one at the top of this browser that has pull down menus) and use a selection to bring up a save dialog box. I'm pretty sure there is an easy way to do this, but I've been struggling for a while now and would greatly appreciate some help.

you have to add a JMenuBar and populate it with menu items.

Thank you! That helped a lot. Now I just need to figure out how to bring up a file browser to select a save location.

I would suggest browsing a swing book at the local bookstore and bookmarking the api docs :)
