This is my current code. I ruined your code Stephan van Hulst. I am sorry. Compared to what you do, it looks like I took a bunch of hacks from some homeless guys (no offense to homeless people that come up with hacks ). Anyway, do you have any suggestions on how to change my code (for anyone and everyone)? I don't have time tonight, but tomorrow I will convert to Applet and post on my website. Will let you know when that happens. Have any advice about the "Typing Lessons" tab? This was just the beginning and the easiest part and would appreciate help to get started in this massive project. Thanks to all you guys help, especially Stephan van Hulst. You guys are great! This should be the completed portion of the free form text counter... (PS on the bottom, please read)
Anyway, here is the updated code (Stephan van Hulst's + My crap code ("Homeless guy hacks") :
PS: My "Homeless guy hacks" WERE developed by me. I am just wowed by the higher level thinking of Java programmers. I think my code looks like hacks instead of programming compared to them . Anyway, help is wanted! If I can help any of you guys out (don't know if I can, but I can try), give me a holler. I DO want to give help (and I try to on these forums if I know the answer).
