    what i posted above is the error that i get when i try to invoke JFileChooser.

    Am tempted to think that its something to do with windows Look and feel not accepting the way i am using JFileChooser because if i use another LookAndFeel it works properly.

    This is how i am doing it

    Java Code:
    final JFileChooser fc = new JFileChooser();
    
    fc.setCurrentDirectory(new File("."));
    
    int returnVal = fc.showOpenDialog(jMenuItem3);
    
    if(returnVal == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION) {
       File file = fc.getSelectedFile();
    
       String f =file.getName();
    try {
    
    //At this point i read data in the file 
    ......
    ......
    }catch (IOException e) {
          e.printStackTrace();
         }
    And for the look and feel, this is how i implement it

    Java Code:
      public static void main(String args[]) {
              java.awt.EventQueue.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
                public void run() {
                    try {
                        UIManager.setLookAndFeel("com.sun.java.swing.plaf.windows.WindowsLookAndFeel");
    
                    } catch (ClassNotFoundException ex) {
                        Logger.getLogger(XenonConcUI.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
                    } catch (InstantiationException ex) {
                        Logger.getLogger(XenonConcUI.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
                    } catch (IllegalAccessException ex) {
                        Logger.getLogger(XenonConcUI.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
                    } catch (UnsupportedLookAndFeelException ex) {
                        Logger.getLogger(XenonConcUI.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
                    }
    
                 new XenonConcUI().setVisible(true);
               }
            });
        }

    fc.setCurrentDirectory(new File("."));
    Actually, as a rule, File class demands for an absolute file path or just a project package path... Try to use list method instead...
    Report if that helped )
