    Don't create new labels, reuse the existing ones.

    Can you make and post a SMALL, simple program that compiles, executes and shows the problem?

    The fix for that statement is to remove it:
      //                 footer.add(new JLabel(buttonClicked.getText()));
    so that it does NOT add a new JLabel.

    Then use the variable: correctLabel to show the results. Don't create a new JLabel.

    An example of what?
    Here's how to set the value of correctLabel from the value in buttonClicked:
      correctLabel.setText(buttonClicked.getText());
    If you need more: make and post a SMALL, simple program that compiles, executes and shows the problem?

    Are you asking how to concatenate a new String to the end of the String currently being shown?

    Use the String concatenation operator:
    String x = "1";   // define x and give it a value of "1"
    x  = x + "2";     //  now x has value of "12"

    Use concatenation so the display will be:
    1
    then
    12
    then
    123
    then
    1234
    etc

    Something like this:
    get value from buttonClicked into x
    get value from label??? into y
    concatenate x to end of y: y = y + x
    set value for label??? from new value of y

    to

      correctLabel.setText(buttonClicked.getText());

    the label was showing 1 2 3 4 5

    the label was showing 1 2 3 4 5
    What is the variable name of "the label" that you are talking about?
    I thought that was what you wanted in the label.

    Without a small, complete program that compiles, executes and shows the problem, this is getting to be a waste of time.
