    Default PLEASE HELP ME, i am over thinking this and I am lost

    Hey everyone so I made this basic code for assignment and I am just lost, the code is really more of any outline but im hoping someone can help me edit it and format it correctly

    so in this code he wants us to make code that will allow user to enter month and year and display how many days are in that month. In this chapter is the code for how to determine a leap year. Use that as part of your code to make this program work correctly Ex: user enters month 2 and year 2012. The program needs to display February 2012 had 29 days
    Input dialog boxes and output command window

    so can anyone look over this and tell me what I need to change or help me re format it please or even make it shorter or is there an easier way to make a code like this
    PLEASE HELP

    public static void main(String[] args)
     
            {
     
     
     
            Scanner input = new Scanner (System.in);
     
     
     
            int MonthNum; 
     
            int Year; 
     
            int numDays;
     
            String Month;
     
     
     
            System.out.print("Please enter the Month #");
     
            MonthNum = input.nextInt();
     
            System.out.print("Please enter the Year");
     
            Year = input.nextInt();
     
     
     
            if (MonthNum == 2)
     
                {
     
                 if ( (Year % 4 == 0) && (Year % 400 == 0)
     
                         && !(Year % 100 == 0) )
     
                       numDays = 29;
     
                     else

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

    Thanks norm and can you please help me out.
    I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong. I am trying to write a program that prompts the user to enter a month and year and the program calculates the number of days for that month/ year and displays it in the format " August 2007 has 31 days". Any tips to point me in the right direction would be most appreciated.

    Is there a shorter way to write this code or what please feel free to edit it and format for improvement

    I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong.
    Please explain why you think you are doing it wrong. If the output shows the problem, copy the output here and add some comments describing the problem and show what the output should be.

    input is dialog boxes
    Look at using the JOPtionPane class methods for getting user input.
    the output is a command window
    Use System.out.println() to display on the command prompt window

    is it possible you could just show me please and re format it just to help me out and

    at the end it is underlining this line with a red line

    System.out.println(Month + " " + Year " has " + numDays ".");

    underlining this line with a red line
    Can you get the compiler's error message?

    Do a Search for examples of the JOptionPane class usage. There are several samples here on the forum for example.

    Strange, you are using code here to do that:

    Work on one item at a time. Which one do you want to work on first?

    We expect you to make some efforts and ask questions when you have problems. We don't write code for you to copy into your program.

    If there are errors in the code, you need to copy the full text of the error message and paste it here.

    What happens when you compile the code? Are there any errors?
    If there are no compiler errors, what happens when you execute the code?

    You need to get the full text of the error messages from netbeans so you can post them here.
    Without error messages, we don't know what the problem is and how to fix it.

    Sorry, I don't use netbeans and can't help you use it. You need to find someone that can help you use it.

    I use the javac.exe program from the JDK to compile my java files.
