taking text from a JTextField and placing it into a JTextArea

As Andrew Thompson already indicated, make sure your code at least compiles and has a main method. The TextEditor class you provided is missing the loadMenuBar & loadToolBar methods, the actionPerformed & loadCalculator methods are sort of merged together, and a main method is missing in both classes. Please formulate your question as best as you can to get good answers.

I think the reason that the result of the conversion does not show up is that the TextEditor and Calculator objects are not connected to each other. In the Calculator.degreeConversion method you try to pass the result to a TextEditor object, but this object is created by the calculator itself (see the field declaration) and this text editor is not visible. This could be solved by passing a reference of the text editor to the calculator constructor.

In code:

import java.awt.BorderLayout;
import java.awt.Dimension;
import java.awt.FlowLayout;
import java.awt.event.ActionEvent;
import java.awt.event.ActionListener;

import javax.swing.JButton;
import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.JTextArea;
import javax.swing.JTextField;

 * TextEditor class.
public class TextEditorVersion2 extends JFrame
implements ActionListener {
    JTextArea textArea;

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        final TextEditorVersion2 textEditor = new
        final CalculatorVersion2
calculatorVersion2 = new

    public TextEditorVersion2(){
        this.setLayout(new BorderLayout());
        // Freek: these methods are missing.
        // Freek: these methods are missing.

    private void loadTextArea() {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub
        textArea = new JTextArea();
        this.add(BorderLayout.CENTER, textArea);

    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {

    private void loadCalculator() {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub
        CalculatorVersion2 c = new
        CalculatorVersion2 calculatorVersion2 =
new CalculatorVersion2(this);


 * Calculator class.
class CalculatorVersion2 extends JFrame implements
ActionListener {
    JButton fToCButton;
    JTextField fToC;
    double fahrenheit;
    TextEditorVersion2 a;

    public CalculatorVersion2(final
TextEditorVersion2 textEditor) {
        super("Unit Converter");
        this.a = textEditor;
        this.setLayout(new FlowLayout());

        fToC = new JTextField(5);

        fToCButton = new JButton("Ferenheit To

        add(fToCButton, BorderLayout.WEST);

    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub
        if(e.getSource() == fToCButton){

    private void degreeConversion() {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub
        double conversion =
        fahrenheit = (((conversion -32) * 5) / 9);

JTextArea issues
The problem is with the way you are adding the text area to your frame: You did this: this.add(BorderLayout.CENTER, textArea); instead of the usual: this.add(textArea, BorderLayout.CENTER); The code will still compile, but you have just used a deprecated add method to add the component to the content pane. According to the documentation for this add signature This method changes layout-

Displaying an array of Strings in a JTextArea
Basically, you are calling setText every time you want to add a new character to the JTextArea in question, this is, first, clearing any existing text and then adding the new String, which, in this case, is the last thing you entered. There are a few ways you could fix this, but because you want to remove the existing text first and then replace it, it's probably better to build a buffer of what
