I’m trying to implement the keyboardNumberInput but i keep geting null pointer exceptions.
I have tryied to rewrite by trying to give it a value and some other stuff but nothing works for me.
Does anyone know what I’m doing wrong?
Here is the Images of my code and where i have used the KeyboardNumberInput.
Thanks in advance.
From your screenshots it appreas you have not initialised your
keyboard variable. You have told java that there is a variable of type
keyboard but that variable is currently empty, it needs to given a value before it can be used, else java will throw a NullPointerException when it tries to perform actions with it (i.e. when you call
keyboard.show(). It knows that objects of the type
KeyboardNumberInput<Double> have a mathod called
show() but it can’t call it because the variable
keyboard has not yet been initialised. That is sort of a long explanation, for more information, read up about nullpointerexeptions here
While most native java objects can be defined by the coder, for example:
JLabel myLabel = new JLabel("some text");
In this particular instance, the keyboard in question is of a type defined by the URCap API, and so you need to fetch an instance of a keyboard from there. You can do this by using the
ProgramAPIProvider that you can pass to the constructor of your contribution class from the service class. Using the
ProgramAPIProvider, perform the following:
keyboard = apiProvider.getUserInterfaceAPI().getUserInteraction().getKeyboardInputFactory().createDoubleKeypadInput();
If you are making keyboards, then I would suggest fetching an instance of the
KeyboardInputFactory and just calling the relative create keybaord metod when required.
Hope this helps.
