Im just beginning Java Programming and have read up a little and been doing tutorials well i'll just cut to the chase here.
I have done a simple tutorial which involves an Applet and adds or subtracts two numbers depending on the button clicked.
There is just a small part of the tutorial which isn't explained very well and thats where the conversion from float to string takes place. I just have a question. (Ill post the entire program below everything)
My question is why is what is happening here?
I understand "msg1 = txt1.getText();" is assigning whatever I type into my first text field to my string variable "msg1" but what is actually happening on the next line? Is this line, "Float num1 = new Float(msg1);", saying take my float from num1 and put it in my string variable msg1? And once in there convert it to a String with this line "msg1 = Float.toString(num1);"?
Thanks to anybody who can understand that question! I really appreciate the help!
Below is the entire program!
