    Default Number Format Exception

    Okay, I am in the process of making this program that basically takes the different numbers that are put in, and puts text on the screen depending on which of the two options were selected. HOWEVER, every time i hit calculate, i am getting a Number Format Exception. If anyone could please help me with this i would be greatly appreciative.

    Default Re: Number Format Exception

    It helps to post the full error message, and trim your code down to an SSCCE. A NumberFormatExceptions is thrown by Number object parsers (such as the Double.parseDouble method you use) if the parameter is not a number. Add some println statements to see what value the parameter you pass to this method

    		amountToSell = Integer.parseInt(textField4.getText().toString());
    	}
     
    	private void amountPerSale() {
    		System.out.println(textField3.toString());
    		amountPerSale = Double.parseDouble(textField3.getText().toString());
    	}
     
    	private void pricePerLot() {

    Can you find the line where the error occurs? What code is on line 93?
    What is the argument to the parseInt() method? Is it a String of digits like: "123" or something else?

    Look at the code and see what is different about that line compared to the other lines above it that appear to work.

    Default Re: Number Format Exception

    Why are you creating resaleGUI twice? I can see why you create it in the main method, but the reason you are getting these errors is because you are creating a new resaleGUI in the calculateButtonPressed action and trying to convert text from its fields before it is even displayed.

    If you remove the line that creates a new resaleGUI in the calculateButtonPressed action and call the subsequent methods on the current resaleGUI object instead, the code will work (kind of).

    Among other things, your GUI creation code in the main method is not good. Check out the Java Tutorial HelloWorld example.
