Hi everyone,
How're you ?

Do you know how to make the password in the JPasswordField getting the actionperform
then matching that "Javaranch" is the password
then if it's "Javaranch", log on.

String password = new String(passwordTextField.getPassword()).trim();
if (password.equals(someStoredPassword)) {
//allow login
} else {
//invalid password
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
