How can I make an array of Buttons, or any other objects?
I have this line
Button [][] b=new Button[size][size];
and at run-time I get the error NullPointerException when I try to access the member functions.
What`s wrong?

you have not defined the objects that you created they all have no value (null) which is illegal in java.

I wish there was a button on my monitor to turn up the intellegince.
Theres a button called 'brightness' but it doesn't work

When you define an array you build the array object (not strictly true, but anyway) but don''t initialize the elements (the object inside the array). You need to construct the elements before you can reference them (ie b[x][y] = new button())..

This might help ...


Button [][] b = new Button[size][size];
for(int x = 0; x < size; x++)
for(int y = 0; y < size; y++)
b[x][y] = new Button();
