    Please edit your post and wrap your code with
    [code=java]
    <YOUR CODE HERE>
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.

    Be sure the code has proper formatting with indentations showing logic nesting levels.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
