C:\Documents and Settings\Tidus\Desktop\ MultArray is not abstract and does not override abstract method actionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent) in java.awt.event.ActionListener
public class MultArray extends JApplet implements ActionListener {

I get that error at the top, when I go to complile. I don't know whats wrong with it, I have that in many of my programs and it works fine.

Did you override actionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent) in your subclass? If so, did you spell the name of the method correctly? (That error has happened to me before...)

If these suggestions do not help, plase post your code so that we can get a better look at the problem.
