Event handler Question

  Asked By: Jeff    Date: Aug 02    Category: Java    Views: 1524

I am facing a peculiar problem, hoping someone can shed some light on

I am trying to use the class startSearch to handle the button click
action Event. All my GUI is in the GUIThread class. But when I try to
access the startSearch constructor it gives me an error that
constructor could not be found.

File: GUIThread.java
class GUIThread extends Thread {
bSearch = new JButton("SEARCH") ;
(new startSearch(tf1.getText(),tf2.getText()) ;

File: startSearch.java
class startSearch implements ActionListener {

public startSearch(String dir, String pattern) {
sDir = dir ;
sPattern = pattern ;

public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {

When compiling GUIThread.java, the error I see is :

Error: unable to find constructor
startSearch(java.lang.String, java.lang.String) ;
