I managed to do it, but...

Hi gang,

I pulled this one off, but I think my use of the static variable is not really what my book intended for me to do. Can anyone tell me if there is a better way to implement the following problem: Write a JApplet that diplays your name in blue the first time the user clicks a JButton. The second time the user clicks the JButton, make the first name seem to disappear. (Hint: Redraw it using the background color.) At the same time, draw your first name again in a larger font in dark gray.

The field doesn't need to be static, so you can just remove the "static".

Instead of the integer count field, a boolean would suffice, since there are only two states: visible and invisible.
I agree. Here's the link:
