Welcome to JavaRanch.

On your way in you may have missed that we have a policy on screen names here at JavaRanch. Basically, it must consist of a first name, a space, and a last name, and not be obviously fictitious. Since yours does not conform with it -"ppl" isn't really your last name, is it-, please take a moment to change it, which you can do right here.

The purpose of JavaRanch isn't to write someone's code for them, but rather to help people to learn Java, so that they learn how to do it themselves. So, nobody will be sending you code; I've removed the email from your post, because we like to UseTheForumNotEmail.

Also, please UseCodeTags when posting code of any length.

There are many other tips on how to get the most out of JavaRanch at HowToAskQuestionsOnJavaRanch.

As to your question, Swing works a bit differently from AWT, so just replacing AWT components with Swing components is not sufficient. Instead of using the paint method to do the drawing, you should use paintComponent.

The code is too long to try to understand it fully, but I noticed that you use "==" to perform string comparison. That's not going to work, you need to use the String.equals method.

and get rid of all the commented out lines.

if they're not needed in you're code, they're not needed here.
