    Hi

    Str: O O O O O
    Dex: O O O O O
    Int: O O O O O
    Wis: O O O O O
    Cha: O O O O O

    and i dont want to use numbers but i want to use dots. How do i make a random character generator that have maybe 20 point to spend randomly?

    I have try to make alot of JRadioButton and ButtonGroup for each dot but i dont know how to code the Random in them.
    Iam just at the beginning level of learning java so all i know is System.out.pring, JRadioButton, ButtonGroup, Jpanel, random.

    Sorry for my bad english and hope somebody can help me or just point me to the right direction.



    // this is my code
    public class Window extends JFrame {


    private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;


    JRadioButton b1, b2, b3, b4, b5;
    ButtonGroup group;
    ButtonGroup group2;
    ButtonGroup group3;
    ButtonGroup group4;
    ButtonGroup group5;


    public Window() {
    super("Charactor");

    setSize(600, 400);
    setDefaultCloseOperation(EXIT_ON_CLOSE);


    JPanel p2 = new JPanel();

    // i dont know what to do with this random??
    int dice = 0;
    Random r = new Random();
    dice = r.nextInt(5);


    JRadioButton b1 = new JRadioButton();
    JRadioButton b2 = new JRadioButton("Str");
    b2.setHorizontalTextPosition(SwingConstants.LEFT);
    JRadioButton b3 = new JRadioButton();
    JRadioButton b4 = new JRadioButton();
    JRadioButton b5 = new JRadioButton();


    group = new ButtonGroup();
    group2 = new ButtonGroup();
    group3 = new ButtonGroup();
    group4 = new ButtonGroup();
    group5 = new ButtonGroup();

    group.add(b1);
    group2.add(b2);
    group3.add(b3);
    group4.add(b4);
    group5.add(b5);

    p2.add(b1);
    p2.add(b2);
    p2.add(b3);
    p2.add(b4);
    p2.add(b5);
    p2.add(b1);
    add(p2);


    }

    }
