I am creating a password generator/fake password hacker. Is there a better way to do this?

Thanks,
John Price aka cc11rocks

"char = char1 + char2 - int"

Please take another look again. You'll see that it is something else, and it is valid.

Thanks for your help. Here is the program I came up with:

I'm going to add more JRadioButtons (more password length options), but here it is. It is fully runnable. Thank you very much!
