    A text field can contain a String. You need to use a text field method to get that String from the text field.
    When you get its contents into a String you can use the Integer class parsing method to convert that String into an int.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Use ints in a jframe? Rather than having to put the information in eclipse itself, i want to be able to put them into a jframe.

    There is no way for a user to enter int values into a JFrame. A user can put String data into a textfield that is shown in a JFrame.
    Or you could use the Scanner class with a console window and use its nextInt() method to read and convert user input into int values.
