int to char

I have the following code which works fine:

cellPanel.add( new JButton(new CharIcon(new Character('1'))) );
cellPanel.add( new JButton(new CharIcon(new Character('2'))) );
cellPanel.add( new JButton(new CharIcon(new Character('3'))) );
cellPanel.add( new JButton(new CharIcon(new Character('4'))) );
cellPanel.add( new JButton(new CharIcon(new Character('5'))) );
cellPanel.add( new JButton(new CharIcon(new Character('6'))) );
cellPanel.add( new JButton(new CharIcon(new Character('7'))) );
cellPanel.add( new JButton(new CharIcon(new Character('8'))) );
cellPanel.add( new JButton(new CharIcon(new Character('9'))) );

I need to change it to something like:
for (int i=0; i<9; i++)
{
cellPanel.add( new JButton(new CharIcon(new Character(i))) );
}

except that there is no Character constructor that takes in an integer. Is there a quick solution? I want to avoid Strings and Character Arrays. Thanks.

In the for loop, the i isn't required by Java to be an int. (It could be a different data type, like the one you actually want it to be.)

Or...

When you create the new Character, you could cast the int i to a different data type.

Maybe you can use this code

Correct. This compiles:

Thank you both.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
