Still a problem with FileFilter

Posted by Thi on November 28, 2001 at 11:54 PM

> The compilation error is because javax.swing.filechooser.FileFilter is a class, not an interface. This is an easy mistake to make, since is an interface.

Brian, thanks for the quick response. Your answer may be correct, but it still doesn't help me with filtering files in a file dialog. :) In Core Java, it says that javax.swing.filechooser.FileFilter is an interface and it shows example code for implemeting it? When I replaced it with, the setFileFilter method won't accept it as an argument because it only accepts javax.swing.filechooser.FileFilter.
