I am currently writing a program which will perform binary to decimal, decimal to binary, hexadecimal to decimal, decimal to hexadecimal conversions, 1's compliment, 2's compliment, and show the list of boolean algebra rules.

I have created the JFrame and the JButtons to create the GUI however, I cannot figure out how to make each of these Jbuttons open up a new frame or panel. Please help me. I will attach the file and the code is below:
