    Question How do I get numeric values from JTextField??

    I am trying to figure out what to use to get user input from a text field on an interface, if the values entered were doubles, and not text. I mean I know how to get text, because there is the getText() option, but I could not find any getDouble, and I am not completely confident in using parse.
    I hate to ask for code, but if someone could give me an example of what use for this I would be set, and I NEED IT, because I have a lot more to finish here and my GUI has several fields which are to accept numbers with decimal fractions, and I need to take those numbers, and use them for calculations to return to the user.
    Anyway, if there is no getDouble option available, then what is there PLEASE??

    You're asking how to convert a String into a double. Check out the Double API for useful functions.
