I'm creating this in java 4 buttons and output area
When the user click button 1 it will show in the output the following

564(0, 0)            //  564 is id number and 0 is location in the x axis and 0 is in the y axis 
564(2, 6)     //using v.move the location in the x and y axis will change to 2,6  

When the user click button 2 it will show in the output the following

125(7, 3)

How can I move 564(0, 0) one unit to the right and report its location also repeat 20 times and report location after each move ( all I know is that I need for loop )

public class program {

    private String id;  
    private int x;     
    private int y;     

    public object (String id, int x, int y) {
        this.id = id;
        this.x = x;
        this.y = y;

    public void move(int x, int y) {
        this.x = x;
        this.y = y;

    public String format() {
        String res = "";

        res = id; 
        res = res +"( ";
        res = res + getX();
        res = res + ", ";
        res = res + getY();
        res = res + " )";

        return res;

    public String getId() {
        return id;

    public int getX() {
        return x;

    public int getY() {
        return y;

//and this is the code for the first two buttons 

       private void BPartAActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {
            v = new Vehicle("AB587 ", 0, 0);
            textOutputArea.append(v.format() + "\n");
            v.move(2, 6);
            textOutputArea.append(v.format() + "\n");


    private void BPartBActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {
        v2 = new Vehicle("F5687", 7, 3);
        textOutputArea.append(v2.format() + "\n");
        int temp1 = v.getX();
        int temp2 = v.getY();
        v2.move(temp1 , temp2);
        textOutputArea.append(v2.format() + "\n");
        v.move(5, 8);
        textOutputArea.append(v.format() + "\n");
        v2.move(2, 4);
         textOutputArea.append(v2.format() + "\n");

I don't think that there is code messing ..
this is every thing I wrote the first two button work


The method name move() looks like it should be called setLocation() instead... To move, it should indicate the number of step moving to x axis and y axis, not assign the value to x and y... If you want it to really call move(), you need to add the incoming values to their proper variables instead...

There must be. All programs end with one or more }s
The code you posted does not have any }s at the end of the code.
