    and here is the hole code

    Java Code:

    public class notepad1 {
         // the main method, for actually creating our notepad and setting it to visible.
    public class main{
        public static void main(String args[]) {
            Notepad app = new Notepad();
    public class Notepad extends JFrame implements ActionListener {
    	private TextArea textArea = new TextArea("", 0,0, TextArea.SCROLLBARS_VERTICAL_ONLY);
    	private MenuBar menuBar = new MenuBar(); // first, create a MenuBar item
    	private Menu file = new Menu(); // our File menu
    	// what's going in File? let's see...
    	private MenuItem openFile = new MenuItem();  // an open option
    	private MenuItem saveFile = new MenuItem(); // a save option
    	private MenuItem close = new MenuItem(); // and a close option!
    	public Notepad() {
    		this.setSize(500, 300); // set the initial size of the window
    		this.setTitle(" Notepad "); // set the title of the window
    		setDefaultCloseOperation(EXIT_ON_CLOSE); // set the default close operation (exit when it gets closed)
    		this.textArea.setFont(new Font("Times New Roman", Font.BOLD, 12)); // set a default font for the TextArea
    		// this is why we didn't have to worry about the size of the TextArea!
    		this.getContentPane().setLayout(new BorderLayout()); // the BorderLayout bit makes it fill it automatically
    		// add our menu bar into the GUI
    		this.menuBar.add(this.file); // we'll configure this later
    		// first off, the design of the menuBar itself. Pretty simple, all we need to do
    		// is add a couple of menus, which will be populated later on
    		// now it's time to work with the menu. I'm only going to add a basic File menu
    		// but you could add more!
    		// now we can start working on the content of the menu~ this gets a little repetitive,
    		// so please bare with me!
    		// time for the repetitive stuff. let's add the "Open" option
    		this.openFile.setLabel("Open"); // set the label of the menu item
    		this.openFile.addActionListener(this); // add an action listener (so we know when it's been clicked
    		this.openFile.setShortcut(new MenuShortcut(KeyEvent.VK_O, false)); // set a keyboard shortcut
    		this.file.add(this.openFile); // add it to the "File" menu
    		// and the save...
    		this.saveFile.setShortcut(new MenuShortcut(KeyEvent.VK_S, false));
    		// and finally, the close option
    		// along with our "CTRL+F4" shortcut to close the window, we also have
    		// the default closer, as stated at the beginning of this tutorial.
    		// this means that we actually have TWO shortcuts to close:
    		// 1) the default close operation (example, Alt+F4 on Windows)
    		// 2) CTRL+F4, which we are about to define now: (this one will appear in the label)
    		this.close.setShortcut(new MenuShortcut(KeyEvent.VK_F4, false));
    	public void actionPerformed (ActionEvent e) {
    		// if the source of the event was our "close" option
    		if (e.getSource() == this.close)
    			this.dispose(); // dispose all resources and close the application
    		// if the source was the "open" option
    		else if (e.getSource() == this.openFile) {
    			JFileChooser open = new JFileChooser(); // open up a file chooser (a dialog for the user to browse files to open)
    			int option = open.showOpenDialog(this); // get the option that the user selected (approve or cancel)
    			// NOTE: because we are OPENing a file, we call showOpenDialog~
    			// if the user clicked OK, we have "APPROVE_OPTION"
    			// so we want to open the file
    			if (option == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION) {
    				this.textArea.setText(""); // clear the TextArea before applying the file contents
    				try {
    					// create a scanner to read the file (getSelectedFile().getPath() will get the path to the file)
    					Scanner scan = new Scanner(new FileReader(open.getSelectedFile().getPath()));
    					while (scan.hasNext()) // while there's still something to read
    						this.textArea.append(scan.nextLine() + "\n"); // append the line to the TextArea
    				} catch (Exception ex) { // catch any exceptions, and...
    					// ...write to the debug console
    		// and lastly, if the source of the event was the "save" option
    		else if (e.getSource() == this.saveFile) {
    			JFileChooser save = new JFileChooser(); // again, open a file chooser
    			int option = save.showSaveDialog(this); // similar to the open file, only this time we call
    			// showSaveDialog instead of showOpenDialog
    			// if the user clicked OK (and not cancel)
    			if (option == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION) {
    				try {
    					// create a buffered writer to write to a file
    					BufferedWriter out = new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter(save.getSelectedFile().getPath()));
    					out.write(this.textArea.getText()); // write the contents of the TextArea to the file
    					out.close(); // close the file stream
    				} catch (Exception ex) { // again, catch any exceptions and...
    					// ...write to the debug console

    Why are you trying to use inner classes? Get rid of the inner classes and use just one class: Notepad. Put the main() method in the NotePad class.
    See tutorial on how to define classes: Classes (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Classes and Objects)
    Nested Classes (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Classes and Objects)

    The error message gives clues on how to solve the problem.
    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Please go through the Forum Rules -- particularly the third paragraph.
