hello all i have a finished program that i worked on last week and i think is running well but i wanted to know how to convert it to have JTextField where the user inputs a value which must appear in the upper part of the frame. There should be a set of three radio buttons which indicate the input scale of the value to be converted.
i wanted to know how to go about this
this is my code

I really do wan't to help you, but I can't. Your code is hard to read.
I would recommend you to indent your code. Then give it a try and see
what happens. Then maybe shorten it as much as possible to show us
what problem you are having.

ok i want to know how to change the output gui to radio buttons and text field instead of buttons
