Hello, I am now on the finally tic tac toe implementation. I am to make a gui tic tac toe game. I am having a little problem with getting my program to display who has won the game. Right now the program is saying the game has resulted in a tie(it does this all the time). It does work properly besides that part I believe. It determines if a move is invalid if a square is occupied etc... If someone could point me where I am off this would greatly help me out. Thanks again

Two things:
1) I don't see anywhere where you set won to true. Can you point to the part of the code that does that? Or if it isn't implemented, can you describe how you know the game is won?

2) You should reverse the order of the following two if statements. It is valid for the board to be full and have someone still win. For example, if X moves 5 times and O moves 4 times and X wins on the fifth move.
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
