This week's book giveaway is in the Other Open Source APIs forum. We're giving away four copies of Storm Applied and have Sean Allen, Peter Pathirana & Matthew Jankowski on-line! See this thread for details.
I have a zombie apocalypse simulator that I've been making. I'm having problems with making the text come up slow enough in my JTextArea (resultField) so that you can see it. All the program has to do is hold a loop still four about a second to half a second so you can read the variables as it increments. I have tried using Thread.sleep(500); but that just makes the GUI freeze for 500 seconds. So what i need the most is someone to help me set up a timer because I've looked all over the internet and none of the tutorials work for what I need (some of them didn't even work at all)
Didn't work? All went wrong? Yes, it's frustrating when a little thing like a semicolon torpedos your code, but for us to help you we need you to TellTheDetails. And read ItDoesntWorkIsUseless for more information. (Those are links; follow them.)
