This is a project I am working at my school as an introduction to two dimensional array. In this program, I attempted to create a two dimensional array, figure out how many neighbouring bacteria said cell have, and create, destroy, and leave the cell as it is. The error I am having is that nothing happens after I press my button. Looking through the script, I am having a hard time finding the logical error. Thank you very much for your time!

different things: 1, if possible: use the Swing components, not the older AWT stuff.
2. don't forget to actually link your buttons to your actions.

you'll have to add an ActionListener
