    Dear all,

    I have been doing a small program which can help user search general photos by keywords and can retrieve most recent general uploads from Flickr.

    I created 4 classes:

    testUserInterface => to build all components for interface.

    testSearch => inherits interface from testUserInterface and build event action when user clicks on button start and button exit.

    PhotoFinder => get connection to Flickr.

    Link to view my code of PhotoFinder

    PhotoPanel => displays photos on this panel.

    Link to view my code of PhotoPanel

    When I select sub-menu "Search Photos" from class testUserInterface, a search panel is displayed with textfield and 2 buttons, start and exit.

    However, a problem occurs when I clicks start button (after entering a specific keyword).
    all photos which relates to the keyword is not shown.
    and I got problem with sub-menu instead in line 180.

    The errors are shown below:
