Welcome to JavaRanch!

First, a bit of business: you've managed to break two of the cardinal rules of the Ranch on your fist post:

1) Please don't post the same question to more than one forum; see our explanation here. I've deleted the other copies of this thread.

2) You may not have read our naming policy on the way in. It requires that you use a full, real (sounding) first and last name for your display name. "Handles" and joke names don't cut it on this site. You can change your display name here. Thanks!

Now, as to your question: I'm not familiar with the "word wheel" of which you speak -- you're not just talking about "auto-suggest", are you? -- but in any case, you'll have to let us know what you've done so far, and what part you need help with. We don't like to do people's homework for them on this site, although we're happy to guide you as you do it yourself.
