    Default Time between help - new Java user!

    Afternoon all!

    First post so please bare with me!

    I've got some software that shows information for a manufacturing company.

    I'm after some code that populates a empty box with text or a number.
    The number should represent the number of products that should have passed through during the day, and text will show if it is a break time, or non production time.

    I think it's obvious that I would have it that if the time is between a and b then show c, but it would need this multiple times, and it would have to reset every morning.

    Does anyone have any idea how I could do this? I've never written any java before, but know SQL (unsure of that helps!), So I've no idea where to start.

    Thank you

    where to start.
    Big question.

    Take a look at the tutorial for a start. Here's a link to a list of topics: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutori...ybigindex.html

    Have you worked on a design for the program yet? Make a list of the detailed steps that the program needs to take to solve the problem. Once you have a design, then start at the first item in the list and work on writing and testing the code for it. When it works, move to the next item in the list.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
