I am doing a homework assignment and I have to create a GUI that calculates the cost of an imaginary widget at a user specified price the only things that dont change is the percentage of tax(7.5%) and shipping costs(which is $9.95).
I am having an issue with the text fields doing the arithmetic and then displaying it.

Here is my code so far.

Hi Marcel,
Welcome to the Ranch!

You have mentioned you have an issue. What is it? Are you getting errors/exceptions when running the code? You need to provide us more details about the problem.
I see that you are getting the values from the textfield and converting it to the data type. I think you should proceed with writing the calculation code.

Thank you for the welcome Ranganathan, I figured it out last night. I had a couple things in the wrong spot. I'll upload the correct code.

Well done sorting it out , but that code needs a lot of editing if you want lots of marks. Get rid of all the tabs and excess blank lines, and make sure all code inside {} lines up vertically. We have some suggestions about formatting, which you might do well to look at.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
