May as well warn you now, your name doesn't fit the naming policy. In other words you need to have a full last name, not an inital!
And on your code, the whole putting an int to an optionPane just doesn't seem right to me, but I'm not very experenced and it may be perfectly fine. Sorry I'm not of much help there! [ August 31, 2005: Message edited by: Atrus Greyor ]

Hi adam, These two links will take you to the two packages that contain the classes that you need to consider Class JOptionPane with showinputDialog method that returns a String , even though you are typing in a number at JOptionPane it is still recognised as a string ,it must be parsed .Thejava lang package (which is imported implicitly) which contains the class, which contains the methods for changing your String input into an int

Actually the cast shouldn't be necessary, as parseInt already returns an int, doesn't it?
