    Arrow need help to call another class

    some examples i found online to call another class but during practice i stuck in GUI once i call another class. hope somebody can help me pls..

    i have one class name 'nestedLoop' that makes output: 60
    Java Code:
    public class nestedLoop {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    int sum=0 ;
    for (int i=0; i<5; i++) { sum+= i;
    for (int j=0; j<5; j++) {sum =sum+j;} }
    and now i have a GUI where has button 'showResult' to show that output in TextArea..
    Java Code:
    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
    if (e.getSource()==showResult)
    nestedLoop np= new nestedLoop();
    {txtArea.setText(np.getText); }
    what should i write instead of txtArea.setText(np.getText) ??
    what we are thinking, it might not be true

    If you want the text to go to a text area then you need a method that returns a String rather than one that prints to System.out. You then call on that method to give you the String which you set onto your text area.

    i think your design is weak. my suggestion is to create a class with the ActionListener and to pass the JTextField and the sum as constructor arguments so that the constructor can implement your requirement with JTextField.addText(sum).
