    Default simple gui java quiz

    I'm trying to make a simple java gui quiz game. I'm making this game so I can input information to help me study for various subjects. I want this program just to ask about 20 questions multiple choice, and at the end tell you how many you got right and your percentage. Everything is going well except for the fact that I can figure out how to make the program go to the next question. I can get it to show the first question and then say if its right or wrong but it wont go on to the next question. Here's the code thanks in advance.


    PS. I know I didn't do the if, else if for the second question I just want to make sure the second question shows up first. Also I know that there might be an easier way then inputting all the questions and answers like that but I don't mind, because as I manually input the questions and answers I get a chance to learn them as well.

    Where is the next question? I see one. Where is the next one?
    Do you know how to use arrays?

    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.

    The first question is what language is this written in, the second is what is 2 + 3. I didn't do the if statements for 2 + 3 yet... I used before but its been a while since I actually had to use them. Thanks

    Do you know how to use arrays or arraylists? That would be a place to put the questions and answers so the program could have a choice.

    I know about arrays but I would have to do some more reading and refresh my memory. so your telling me all I have to do is add arrays to my program and it should work?

    Sorry, its not that simple. It will require programming to fit logic for using an array into the code.
