Hello,

I am trying to write a simple program that takes input from the fields I have created for the following UI and writes them to a command prompt. Can someone help me with the next step.... getting the input entered and writing it to the prompt? I would also like the buildLicenseButton to be the one to execute this write method and the quitButton to close the app. Any help is appreciated. Here is the source.

Followed advice on code tags readily with too much of a fuss.

Thanks for the tutorial. That should be the information that I need.
I appreciate the assistance.
