This program compiles correctly, but
i cant seem to get anything to appear on my applet screen except for the textField with the current program down below. Can anyone see a problem, i cant?
i think im seeing doubles, since ive been looking at
this program for 30 hours.

private TextField input;
private String [] stringArray = new String [10];
public void init(){
input = new TextField (20);
add (input);
input.addActionListener (this);}
public void paint(Graphics g){
display(stringArray, g);}
public void actionPerformed (ActionEvent e){
repaint ();}

// This section below contains the methods
public void getData (String [] array)
for (int z=0; z < array.length; z++){
array [z] = input.getText();}}
public void display(String [] array, Graphics g){
int yValue=100;
for (int w=0; w < array.length; w++)
g.drawString("Index "+w+"is "+array[w], 100, yValue*15);}
}//end of program
