        private javax.swing.JButton buttonPlus;
        private javax.swing.JTextField textField;
        // End of variables declaration
    }




    Note that I am not finished yet




    So, I think I have all the code figured out, except for this:

    private void buttonEqualActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEv ent evt) {

    textField.setText(output);

    }

    The setText() gives me the error that I cant have an int as the text. I have tried using .toString(), but it says the int cannot be dereferenced.

    Help?

    Default Re: .setText() for an int?

    It cannot be dereferenced because int isn't an object. Integer however is.

    To solve your problem, you can use either of the following: setText(String.valueOf(23)) or setText( "" + 23)
    Please use [highlight=Java]//code goes here...[/highlight] tags when posting your code

    Default Re: .setText() for an int?

    But the value will change, so I can't just have a certain number as the output. Is there a way to make this work?

    Use the variable you want to show instead of the 23
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    }

    When I run it, there aren't any errors, but when I try to do something really simple (like add 1 and 2) it always gives me 0 as the answer.

    I assume this is a really stupid error on my part, but I just can't find where it is! Can someone help?

    Default Re: .setText() for an int?

    Add some printlns to show the values of the variables used to do the computation so you know if they are good values. Also print out the results.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Well, I did that, and it still comes up with the same thing. However, when I use the divide button, it works fine. So I am assuming that I made an error somewhere along the actionListener codes for the operator buttons.

    Add a println after every computation to see if they are all working properly.

    You need to add this javac option to the javac commandline to get the warning telling you what is wrong: -Xlint

    The IDEs must have a way to display warnings about problems in the source code from the compiler that they use. I have no idea what they can do or how to control what they do.

    It seems like the IDE should give you the warnings.
