    can some one fix my black jack code
    Fix what? Does it compile? Exceptions? Misbehave? Post an SSCCE, and ask a specific question about your code and you'll have much better luck at getting help.

    it does not have to be any thing advanced. its supposed to be computer(dealer) vs. player. you have to deal #'s from 1-11.

    I still have yet to see you ask a specific question, or answer the questions I posted above. Perhaps someone else might be able to read your mind (or see your computer screen), but to date I don't seem to have that kind of power.

    my while loop is not working properly for the player. if i click hit first time it adds up score properly and everything but if i click hit again than it ignores the old number and only adds the new number

    Again, I'm not good at reading minds. If you want help, you are going to have to put in some effort asking your question so that the question can be understood - and possibly answered.
