Here I am again! I am working on the program below that is calculating payroll but am kind of lost on how to program the reset button after the net pay has been calculated. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

   private JTextField fnameTF, lnameTF, hoursTF, hrateTF, idTF, weeknumTF, netPayTF;
	//right column of GUI component for entering information in the fields

   private JButton calculateB, resetB, addB, exitB; //Buttons listed on GUI component

Edited 5 Years Ago by Ezzaral: Added code tags. Please use them to format any code that you post.

Looks to me like you just want to set the text of your text fields back to zero or empty. You can just call setText(String) on each of them.

Thanks but I fixed that problem. Have another one if you want to help me out with it. I have it posted under Java Payroll Program. Just listed a couple of minutes ago. Thanks.
