here is my program and hope u could help me solve my problem on how to repeat this whole game program when the player chooses the the Yes button which indicates that he'd like to play again.

Does your program compile ?? I dont think so because I didnt see any DARK_GRAY and LIGHT_GRAY colors in the color class ... they were darkGray and lightGray.. ??

yes my program compiles with no errors on it, this is 100% sure. i have tested it and its working with the only problem that i cant repeat it, u will notice from the bottom part of this program the statement that i have mentioned to execute is a ; character because i dont know what to place there once Yes button is pressed.

It's not even compiling in my compiler ... I use JBuilder7 with jdk 1.4 ... ?? which compiler do you use to compile?

its jdk 1.4.2

psylocke... you should really learn to program more modularly & object-orientated-ly. If you had, making little modifications to your program (and controlling the flow of the program) would be much easier.

But as it looks now... I think you should switch your program to the following structure:

  • a create() method in which you 'create' everything (all the new labels etc.)
  • a reset() method in which you set all values, fields, label names, guesses etc. to their initial (pre-game) values
  • a start() method (same as you already have)

Then get your YES button ActionListener to call only the init() method and then the start() method.

oops, couldn't edit my post.

Ignore the last bit. So, basically.. you get your applet's init() method to call all three above-mentioned methods. And get your YES button ActionListener to call the reset() and start() methods only.

Since everything here appears to be in one method, I get the impression that psylocke is brand new to Java and hasn't yet learned how to create multiple methods and classes. Am I right?

psylocke,

Another suggestion: Since you have so many related variables (i.e. Label peglbl1, peglbl2, peglbl3) it may make your code neater if you used arrays.

Instead of multiple Label statements, do this:

Label[] pegLabel = new Label[15];

for (int i = 0; i < pegLabel.length; i++) {
    pegLabel[i] = new Label("");
    pegLabel.setBackground(Color.DARK_GRAY);
    add(pegLabel[i])
}

// - or if you have a string table 'pegStrings' with all the initial
// strings of the labels, you could do this:
for (int i = 0; i < pegLabel.length; i++)
   pegLabel[i] = new Label(pegStrings[i]);

Then instead of what you do in your action listener

if(tri==1)
peglbl1.setBackground(Color.GREEN);
else if(tri==2)
peglbl2.setBackground(Color.GREEN);
else if(tri==3)
peglbl3.setBackground(Color.GREEN);

You can do this:

pegLabel[tri].setBackground(Color.GREEN);

Let us know if this makes sense. I'm not sure what you have learned. Definitely give arrays a try. It should tidy up your code much.

hi cosi, thanks for the big help. i really know that there is a way to make this short using arrays but i dont know how to do that i cant find reference material for this during that time, coz i was in a rush doing this project. your recommendations are all great this exactly what i also wanted to know...THANK U so much cosi. muah

apcxpc,

thanks for the answers, thanks a lot...thats all i can say right now. thanks for the help really.

Since everything here appears to be in one method, I get the impression that psylocke is brand new to Java and hasn't yet learned how to create multiple methods and classes. Am I right?

yah thats right...but i know i can be good in java in time, it will be because of this group and my eagerness to learn the language.
