I'm trying to convert from a String to do numeric sorting. Below is what I would like to accomplish in what I think should work. But I get an error message in NetBeans saying "inconvertible types. Required: int. Found Java.lang.String" why won't this convert the string to an integer? How do I accomplish this?

Thanks for your help.

Look at the Integer.parseInt() method.

Dear Bud
In java there is a parseInt method of Integer class by which you can convert String to integer
Your code should be like this
