I need help figuring out why my program will compile but won't run.
Then paste your doubt rather than asking do we know java ?
I'm getting the following at run time. Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: adding container's parent to itself at java.awt.Container.checkAddToSelf(Unknown Source) at java.awt.Container.addImpl(Unknown Source) at java.awt.Container.add(Unknown Source) at CalMortCalcTemp.
I've looked over the code and all seems well, but ....
Share your source code using gist.github.com
k hang on
Sorry, I've never used that website Do I make a private or public Gist?
make a public gist.
termLab.add(termLab, console); you definitely can't do that. just what the compiler is saying: you can add a container to itself. when the compiler errors, it will give you a line number. Go to the line number as a starting point to solve.
Oh wow. I totally missed that. that should read: midPanel.add(termLab,console);
it's almost always something silly like that :).
Well one thing I have learned is that it is usually the really simple things that get over looked. I was have some trouble with my previous version and it was as simple as not adding a button to my listener. That too took a second pair of eyes to point out.
heh yea always happens. if you find yourself looking the same problem for over 30 minutes, it can often be good to take a break, even for another 30 minutes. then you get a fresh look at it.
if i helped, please click 'good answer' so i'll get a medal :)
Yeah I do that . . . sometimes. I often find myself spending too long on something because I think I can figure it out in a few more minutes . . . and a few more minutes . . . and a few more minutes . . .
I will mos def get you a medal. the program works now. It just has some major formatting issues that shouldn't be too hard to fix (I hope).
eclipse will not alert you to this type of error because it occurs at run-time
