 Your problem:new ImageIcon [] = getClass().getResource(name[0])
 What are u doing here...
 Solution: new ImageIcon(getClass().getResource(name[0]))
 Image Icon takes a parameter and that the image location.
 Hope this Help..

Thanks... I still have a few errors though...

public void itemStateChange (ActionEvent e)

I think u require to implement ItemEvent, and please post the errors

You are reading images one ata time, but then trying to create a new array for each image. You can't assign an image to an array, just to one lement of the array, eg

 private ImageIcon[] icons = new ImageIcon[4];
 icons[0] =  getClass().getResource(name[0]);
 icons[1] =  getClass().getResource(name[1]);
 // etc (or use a loop)
