(missing the parens)


There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

although When it prints out in gui it only prints out 1 item of the stack what I would like it to do is keep printing out the entire stack such as
4
3
2
n
t
So you can see every element in the stack, this is what i'm using in my gui to print it out at the moment.

outputStackTF.setText(myStack.toString());

I've just barely skimmed your code, so i may not be correct. But it looks to me like in your public String toString() method, you are only calling the toString() method on the top element...therefore, it only prints what is in the top element.

What you would need to do is write some code that reads each element in the stack and calls IT'S toString() method.
