hi everyone,
hmm i'm doing a swing applet and i have trouble getting the int from the text field...
for example :
JTextField textField = new JTextField(10);
when lets say if someone key in numbers in this text field will i be able to retrieve the number from the String(i suppose textField.getText() is to get the value in the text field right?and it is a String..)
i've look thru java API and it says that i can convert a String to an integer by using parseInt or decode right?but how do i use it?

You need to use Integer.parseInt(). Don't forget to catch parsing exceptions.
