    Default textfield - printstream - text file - to much text

    Hi!

    I using PrintStream and when i stored a text in at text field i got a lot of text.

    Java Code:
            try
    {
        // Open an output stream
        fout = new FileOutputStream ("c:/test.txt");
    
        // Print a line of text
        PrintStream p = new PrintStream(fout);
        p.println (path);     //<<<<------ alot of text from textfield
        p.println (username);
        p.println (password);
        p.println (port);  
        p.println ("test2"); //<<<<--------- work fine in text file
       
        // Close our output stream
        fout.close();
    }
    // Catches any error conditions
    catch (IOException e)
    {
    	System.err.println ("Unable to write to file");
    	System.exit(-1);
    }

    The output in text file look like this
    Java Code:
    java.awt.TextField[textfield0,10,10,380x23,text=Path,editable,selection=0-0]
    java.awt.TextField[textfield1,10,43,380x23,text=Username,editable,selection=0-0]
    java.awt.TextField[textfield2,10,76,380x23,text=Password,editable,selection=0-0]
    java.awt.TextField[textfield3,10,109,380x23,text=Port,editable,selection=0-0]
    test2

    How can the java code only write the text for textfield to file? not everything? You can see println"test2" work.

    thanks!

    Default

    You are probably printing out the textfields themselves instead of the text in the textfields.
    Use the getText() method of JTextField to get the text.

    p.println (path.getText());
