Accessing from another file

  Asked By: Jeff    Date: Dec 07    Category: Java    Views: 397

I'm trying to access an instance (a JTextArea) in a public class from
another file. How do I do that (this might be a little bit silly, but I haven't
done this before?) Is there a good way of doing it?

If the other class  was named OtherClass

and the JTextArea was named textArea

OtherClass anotherClass = new OtherClass();
JTextArea myTextArea =anotherClass.textArea;


JTextArea myTextArea = (new OtherClass()).textArea;

but it will only copy the JTextArea as it once was
initialized. It won't get the content when I write something. Is there a way to
keep my new JTextArea updated from the other one?
