    }
    if (source == e)
    {
    b5.setText ("e");
    }














    } //end actionPerformed
    } //WheelofFortuneclass




    the clues should be matched to the phrase for example if the clue is "where you live" the phrase generated should be "house". and obviously we dont want the user to see the answer "house" because they have to guess it. and also the amount of letters in the phrase determines the buttons to show the answer so how do i do that?

    The String class has a method that returns its length. Use that in a loop to create one button for each character in the String.

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with
    [code=java]
    <YOUR CODE HERE>
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    in this code only the word house works
    The index to the phrase array is hardcoded as 0. If you want different Strings from the array you need to use a variable whose value can be changed.

    whenever i try to make the new label and put it on the top panel the other things disappear
    What is the name of the label you are trying to add? I don't see "turns" anywhere in the program.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    yes exactly whenever i try to generate a random phrase by putting phrase[i] and do the same the thing to the clue[i] it doesnt work ... do i have to create a loop

    and for the turns .. i removed it thats why its not in the program... forget turns for now .. if i want to create random cash values beside the cash label like $100,200,300,400,500,600,700,800,900 and add the them as i click the spin button everytime for example if i click the spin button once beside the cash label it should say any of those values and then i play the game and then when i click the spin button again everything should reset except that cash value it should add the previous one to the new one that generates when i click the spin button the second time.

    Default Re: Assignment

    it doesnt work
    Please explain. Somewhere the code needs randomly chose an index to the phrase array and use that vs the index of 0.

    The code has several "magic numbers" coded in it. Its best not to hard code numbers in a program but rather to use variables. For example I see these numbers used: 0, 5, 8

    The layout is terrible. I have a small screen so the letters disappear at about r. Wrap the letters to two rows.

    I'd work on the turns thing after you get the changing of phrase to work. Its often best to work on one thing at a time.

    "a" is a poor name for a variable. Variable names should say what value they contain.

    Doesn't the word have to be determined before the blank buttons are displayed so you know how many buttons to display?

    Default Re: Wheel Of fortune

    What about these "magic numbers"?
    for (i = 0 ; i < 8 ; i++)
    buttons [5].setVisible (false);
    String word = phrase [0];
    int a = (int) (Math.random () * 5 + 1);

    They should all be replaced with variables. Some are the length of arrays, some the length of Strings.

    the 8 is there because thats the length of the array ... thats how many phrases and clues we have right now .. and it should be 6 actually lol :/

    that 5 should also be 6 since there are 6 clues and phrases .. we have to create random clues and phrases everytime the spin button is clicked

    That is not the way to control a loop. You should use the array's .length attribute, It tells anyone reading the code what is happening and allow the size of the array to be changed without breaking the program.
    that 5 should also be 6 since there are 6 clues and phrases
    Same reason and problem as with 8.

    You need to work on the layout so the letter buttons are shown in two rows so they fit on a small window.

    buttons [position].setText (letter);
    }













    } //end actionPerformed
    } //WheelofFortuneclass


    </code>

    this code shows the letters on two rows ... and try doing the answers now if u click the correct letter for many times it shows up so for example if it shows "ruler" in the clue try clicking "K" "I""N""G" many times and it will show up.

    also i dont get how to use the .length to clear the clue area with the previous clue every time spin is clicked

    Doesn't the word have to be determined before the blank buttons are displayed so you know how many buttons to display?

    this is one part of what i have to do ..

    The layout does not work for me. The empty buttons are only partially shown.
    The spin and solve buttons are missing.
    The answer text field is not shown


    The posted code has lost its formatting. There is no indentation for nested statements. Please fix the formatting.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
