Thanks so much for bothering to look at this n.n;
I've been kind of confused in this class, mainly because I have no idea what the teacher's saying; her English isn't that great, and she has no in-class coding exercises so we're learning entirely from her crappy powerpoints. I'd have been better off just learning directly from the source material....
But I digress. I resisted the allure to just copy off of random websites, mainly because I actually want to learn, and my code is giving me errors attributed to files that aren't even there. I'm kind of wondering what's going on here....
Here's my code:

The first assignment was to make a thermometer program with GUI. The second was to recreate a GUI, which should be accurate: if not, I'll scan the book and post it here.

um....
if someone wants a copy of bioshock on steam I'll gift it to you if you help me xD I have an extra....

Thanks in advance!

PS: here's the exact errors.

That is the source of your first error. You are trying to parse "Fahrenheit: " as a float. It is a String. And we don't get rewards for helping people here. Besides which, giving away free copies of BioShock is undoubtedly illegal, so I wouldn't be surprised if one of the moderators here edits that out of your post and gives you an infraction.

Thanks for the help! Surprised I didn't already catch that.

Not seeing how it's illegal to give Steam gifts, as it's impossible to have pirated keys on Steam, but I'll remove it if it's against the rules.

Second one's finished; found the error.

I'm still getting errors in the first, however.... any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Sorry, I meant to say the first one is fine and the second is still getting errors. What am I doing wrong? Help!!! :(

On line 45

fieldJPanel.add (fieldJPanel1,BorderLayout.NORTH);

you haven't initialized 'fieldJPanel1'. Looks like you mis-typed it up above and set up 'fieldJPanel' twice.
