    Default Update Stock Code

    I'm trying to figure out how to update stock from entering in a number in a text field and then either clicking the add stock or delete stock button to update the stock.

    And what's the problem? What does that code do? Does it compile? Does it run? Does it give you some kind of error?

    The code runs a table which contains text fields and buttons. The problem is I want to update the quantity of an item by entering in a number to the text field and when i click either the add or delete button it will take the number I entered in the text field and take it away (or add) from the quantity. Each item has an item number so I will first enter the item number into one of the fields and then the number I want to update the quantity will be in another field. That's how the code will know where to update the number to.

    Okay, and which part of this is giving you trouble?

    I don't know where to start to get the "Add Stock" & "Delete Stock" button to work. I need to make sure the add stock button adds the number that was put into the text field and added to the quantity that is already there and same for the Delete Stock button.

    get the "Add Stock" & "Delete Stock" button to work.
    Is the action listener method called when the button is pressed? Add a println() statement to print out a message to show if the listener method is called.

    That's good. What does the listener need to do now? Can you explain what problems you are having here?
    Where is the data it needs? How should it get that data and what should it do with the results?

    When I enter in a number the item information comes up (when I click "Check Stock") and you can see the quantity but now when i enter the number into those text fields beside Add Stock and Delete Stock. I want to either add stock to whats already there or delete. The image should make things more clearer.

    Seems there are two steps. Which step are you having problems with?
    Get the number
    and add it to whats already there

    YESS exactly this. I don't know how I can take the number that is in the text field and add it to the current quantity of the item.

    how I can take the number that is in the text field
    Read the API doc for the textfield to see how to get its contents.
