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

    what code to put behind the buttons
    Can you describe what the code in the listeners should do? Be specific describing what variables need to be changed for the desired results.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    What variables would the code have to check and to change to do that?

    The hardcoded values in the paintComponent method will have to be changed to be variables so the listener method can see and change their values.
