    Default help with JButton and writing to a text file

    i will post the entire code if requested, but i want to focus on this bit:

    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent arg0)
    {
    fw = new FileWriter("G:\\FINAL PROJECT\\program\\list.txt");
    list = new PrintWriter(fw);
    String word = wordField.getText();
    String definition = defArea.getText();
    list.output(word + "\t" + definition);

    list.close();
    fw.close();
    }

    where do throw the IOException in order for this code to work properly?
    what im trying to do here is to add a word and its definition to a text file(list.txt) when a button is clicked

    There's nowhere you could put any exception handling in that code and have it work properly. Check the PrintWriter API to see what methods it has available.

    Why do you want to throw the exception? Place a try/catch statement around the line(s) of code that might throw an exception and handle them appropriately.
