How to Create a GUI application Showing Details in I-Card Format, NetBeans: Java Programming

9:43 AMMonday, January 6, 2014
NetBeans provides a simple and easy way to create a new project and input some information in sql programming. The article will let the programmer do the same thing.
  • Start NetBeans and create a new project and add four labels and four textfields from the palette tab as explained in earlier article.

  • Set following font properties for all the labels and textfields.
    Type: Comic Sans MS (you may choose any other font if you wish)
    Style:
    Bold
    Size:
    12

  • Adjust the placement of Heading, whose properties you set just now, by dragging it, so that it appears in the middle horizontally. Set name property of the labels respectively:
    jLabel1   to    titlelabel1
    jLabel2   to    firstNameLabel
    jLabel3   to    lastNameLabel
    jLabel4    to   classLabel
    jTextField1    to        firstNameTextField
    jTextField2    to        lastNameTextField
    jTextField3    to        classTextField
    jTextField4    to        sectionTextField

  • Set text property for these labels as given below:
    titleLabel1  to  Title(Mr/Ms)
    firstnameLabel  to  First Name
    lastnameLabel    to    Last Name
    classLabel  to  Class

  • Also set the text property of each of null string i.e. “ “ and resize them as per the screenshot. Now your frame should look like the one shown in below

  • Add a Button control by dragging it from Palette to frame. Name it as okButton. Set its text property to Generate and its font remain as is.
Before you add text area to frame, you may need to increase the size of the frame. For this drag the boundary of the frame in desired direction to get its desired size.
  • Just as you added other controls, add a text field control to your frame and give it a size according to I-Card. Name it as repTextArea. To name the text area field, you need to click the jScroolPane control in inspector window. A Scroll pane automatically gets added to your frame when you add a text area.

  • Adding Functionality to Frame
    Now double click on the boundary of the push button i.e., the okButton in design space. The code editor window will get opened. In it, without touching the cursor, simply type the following code. For now you won’t understand it. But it will be clear to you later when we’ll be talking about java concepts.
When you use getText() with a control’s name followed by a dot(.). It returns the text stored in the control. So the code will give the text stored in the control whose name is titlenameField.

Now save your work by pressing Ctrl + S and press F6 to run your project. You may also click Run icon on the toolbar. See your application run. After entering details in text fields, click on Generate. Wow, isn’t it similar to one shown in screenshot?
