Hello, I created one text box, 2 labels and 2 buttons in swings using net beans. 2 labels caption are Fahrenheit and Celsius. 2 buttons caption are convert and clear.
The Program is to convert the given input to Fahrenheit.

If we click convert button, the above thing will execute. My doubt is in the above program, why don't i give the line which is commented instead of the above line. can you explain

Thank you in advance
