    Default Matching Pairs game - something's not right?

    Hi, this is a matching pairs game i'm making. basically if the user manages to find a matching pair they score a hit if not they score a miss. What i'm finding though, is that when i click on the cards (JToggleButtons), they wont change, only once i press the 'solve' button do they change on the click of a mouse. I can't figure it out for the life of me? Please could someone show me where im going wrong.. thanks!
