Basically, I am having trouble figuring out how to work my if statements. The only one that works is the final statement and that is due to it not having the

if("#".equals(e.getActionCommand()))

statement. So, how should I go about allowing the user to select the quantity in the combobox and in turn use my if statements to retrieve that number and return the correct price in the textfield? Thank you for any help.

    public static void main(String[] args)

     }
}

Your code do not woks as you expected because this line of your code

e.getActionCommand() ;

Always returns comboBoxChanged;
” that’s why the branche excuted in you if statement is always the last else:

else {
                //JTextField bCTotal = (JTextField)e.getSource();
                bCTotal.setText(twoThouS);
            }

You should use instead getItemAt with getSelectedIndex.
The ComboListener class may look like this:

private class ComboListener implements ActionListener {

        public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
            //turn double into string so it will show up in the JTextField

            double oneHun = 8.95;
            double twoFif = 11.95;
            double fiveHun = 12.95;
            double oneThou = 13.95;
            double twoThou = 27.95;
            String oneHunS = Double.toString(oneHun);
            String twoFifS = Double.toString(twoFif);
            String fiveHunS = Double.toString(fiveHun);
            String oneThouS = Double.toString(oneThou);
            String twoThouS = Double.toString(twoThou);
            //bCTotal.setText(oneHunS);
            JComboBox comboBox=(JComboBox) e.getSource();
            String s =(String) comboBox.getItemAt(comboBox.getSelectedIndex());

            if ("100".equals(s)) {
                // JTextField bCTotal = (JTextField)e.getSource();
                bCTotal.setText(oneHunS);
            } else if ("250".equals(s)) {
                //JTextField bCTotal = (JTextField)e.getSource();
                bCTotal.setText(twoFifS);
            } else if ("500".equals(s)) {
                //JTextField bCTotal = (JTextField)e.getSource();
                bCTotal.setText(fiveHunS);
            } else if ("1000".equals(s)) {
                //JTextField bCTotal = (JTextField)e.getSource();
                bCTotal.setText(oneThouS);
            } else {
                //JTextField bCTotal = (JTextField)e.getSource();
                bCTotal.setText(twoThouS);
            }

        }
    }

Hope it helps

Thanks for the help. I already figured out a different method of getting it to work. But I tried out yours also, and it worked perfectly. I appreciate the help.
