Welcome to the JavaRanch, Dwayne. While we like talking about all things Java 'round these parts, we realize that the only way to learn how to write code is to write code. If you have a specific question we can help you with, like a compile error you can't get past or you are unsure how to use a particular GUI widget, we'll help you get on your way. If you are planning to post your code and say "it doesn't work", you should probably speak with your instructor. Check out How to Ask Questions the Smart Way to get the most out of your time here.
