    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:
    [code=java]
    <YOUR CODE HERE>
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.

    Do you have any specific questions or problems?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    yes, the robot moves in all directions, pushes the bomb, there is a red bricked area and compass which I have created code for, however i cant seem to figure out this section: create 3 JLabel’s for’Option’, ‘Square’ and ‘Direction’, & JTextField’s for the current option, location/square and direction of the robot

    Task

    Basic System Requirements (Graphical User Interface):
    • 30 x 30 grid of JButton’s or Icon’s.
    • 4 JButton’s for ‘Option 1-3’ and ‘Exit’.
    • 3 JButton’s for ‘Act’, ‘Run’ and ‘Reset’.
    • 9 JButton’s for ‘Forward >’, ‘Backwards <’, ‘Up ^’, ‘Down v’ should move the robot in the appropriate direction by one square for each press (plus 5 blank).
    • The compass icon (JButton) should illustrate the current direction for the robot.
    • 3 JLabel’s for’Option’, ‘Square’ and ‘Direction’.
    • JTextField’s for the current option, location/square and direction of the robot. Use your own square identification method e.g 1 to 273 and N, E etc.
    • Create a JFrame application, which opens to the set size (875 * 550).
    • JFrame title set as "CBombRobot Application".

    Default Re: cant seem to figure out this section: 3 JLabel’s for’Option’, ‘Square’ and ‘Direction’, & JTextField’s for the current option, location/square and direction of the robot

    create 3 JLabel’s for’Option’, ‘Square’ and ‘Direction’, & JTextField’s for the current option, location/square and direction of the robot
    What is the problem with creating those JLabels?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    a JLabel is just another component that can be added to the GUI to display text or an image.
    Create an instance of the JLabel and add it to a container just like is done with a JButton component.

    See the tutorial: How to Use Labels (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing > Using Swing Components)

    Treat them the same as the JButtons or other components added to the GUI.
    Read the tutorial.
