im using a mac now.. i dont know if it is different.. but when ever i run this program the calculate button and the exit button does not appear.. what should i do?

im using netbeans and eclipse


You have not added the buttons to the pane that is the reason why you can not see them.

This line has no ; and that will give you an error when compiling.

AverageScore = (quizOne+quizTwo+quizThree+quizFour)/4

If you want to split your window area in to two columns that is easiest done by creating a left panel and a right panel. Then you add the labels, text fields and buttons on these two panels the way you want them to be and last you add the panels on the pane.

Hope this gave you some help.
Good luck =)
