Dear Khella Smith, I don't know if you are using AWT or Swing. Anyhow, with swing, this particular problem of yours gets easier the higher the version of JDK/SDK you are using.The InputVerifier class was introduced into Swing in JDK1.3 and could save one a lot of lines of code when validating a textfield. The APIs even have an example on it's usage, do check it out. Also JFormattedTextField was introduced in JDK1.4 and even has a more complete set of methods that support validating abitrary values in a JTextField. It wouldn't be a bad idea for you to move up to a later version of the SDK (if you are using an old one, that is), moreso because it's................ free!. Hope this helps.
