I know this really doesnt relate direclty to gaming but I couldn't find a more complete Java commuinity than this so I'll ask it here  Smiley. Ok I'm pretty much completely noob, and newless so heres what I need to know, how can I get this set-up to work? The main thing I think I need is what to put                   connectItem.addActionListener(super); in the place of super. Thanks.

Use 'this' instead of 'super'.  'this' refers to the instance of the class Gui.

Hmm but "this" cant be referenced from a static context. Im sure there is some easy way to do this I'm just tired and cant quite get a hold of it. I never really understood implements and extends either hehe.

Lol that didnt really work either, ok now the only problem is that it  "no interface expected here" for "class Gui extends ActionListener" Im not sure why it would say that did I type it wrong? I imported java.awt.event.* But nonnus thanks for the "this" thing thats working now.

You can't extend an interface (which is what ActionListener is). You need to implement it, so replace "extends" with "implements".

And set makeMainGui() to be non-static, that will allow you to use "this".

Those are fundamental ideas - you can't hope to write non-trivial Java programs without understanding them. Check out Bruce Eckel's online book "Thinking in Java" for an in-depth explanation.
