          textbox ? may be you mean JTextField or JTextArea

          to set value to JTextField/JTextArea use 'setText' method
          to get value from JTextField/JTextArea use 'getText' method

          for details you can read API doc about JTextField and JTextArea

            Add a JTextField and a JButton to a container, then have the container implement ActionListener. Then check the source or the actionCommand in method actionPerformed, and proceed accordingly. This is to let your console easily work with the text from the textfield, and there is no need for a socket at this point.

              PrintStream, FileOutputStream, FileWriter should all help you to save it to a file.
