Hello All,

I am working on an assignment which calculates different pay rates based on the selection of a radio button. I'm okay with the default one (FIRST), but am unsure of how to base a different calculation on the other two radio buttons (SECOND and THIRD). I'll include what I have below...if anyone could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

click the various radioButtons to see the textfiled background change color



if you want to set it up for the radioButtons to determine the pay rate, do it similar to what I've done for colors
double[] payRates = {15.1,25.2,35.3};etc
double payRate = payRates[0];//to match 'FIRST' being selected at startup

then in actionPerformed
payRate = payRates[index];

Wow! You made me think of that in a completely different way. Thanks very much!
