How do I combine a JTextField and a JRadioButton?
I would like to have a JRadioPanel with three options. The first two are hardcoded options, and I want the third to be an 'Other' button. I would like to have a JTextField instead of text as the title of that button, but I'm not sure how to do that. I tried simply putting the field as the argument for the radio button, but it didn't like that much. I haven't found anything online to tell me how, except maybe through NetBeans, and that doesn't do me much good. Is there any way to easily do this, or will I have to do some fancy stuff with the layout?
Okay, new problem. The buttons are all looking right, but for some reason they're in a row instead of in a column. Here's the code for it. Not sure why it's doing this.
tf2 = new JTextField("Other", 20); newName.setActionCommand("newname"); fulfillment.setActionCommand("fulfillment"); fulfillment.setSelected(true); type.add(fulfillment); type.add(newName); fulfillment.addActionListener(this); newName.addActionListener(this); GridBagConstraints rC = new GridBagConstraints(); JPanel radioPanel3 = new JPanel(new GridBagLayout()); rC.gridwidth = 2; radioPanel3.add(fulfillment); rC.gridy = 1; radioPanel3.add(newName); rC.gridy = 2; rC.gridwidth = 1; radioPanel3.add(other); rC.gridx = 1; radioPanel3.add(tf2); c.gridx = 10; c.gridy = 4; pane.add(radioPanel3, c);
Place the third radiobutton without text and add JTextField. E.g. Use GridBagLayout where the first and the second radiobuttons take 2 columns and in the third row the "empty" radiobutton has row=2 col=0 and JTextField row=2 col=1
