Problem with NumberFormatException in calculator
Hi I am doing a calculator program in lwuit like the one that v have in our windows calculator .........................I have some problems in my code......... I have did the initial coding for forms buttons and have even made the operators ,+,*,/ work but the problem now I am facing is continues pressing of any operator I am not getting the result as u get in win calculator ,so results cum only if = button I have added a if condition for = wherein if it is pressed the value will be shown now I have added a or operator to it
if (operand.equals("=") (operand.equals(operation))) and while executing I get a java.lang.NumberFormatException but continuing the execption I am able get the result when any operator is pressed so can u help me in solving me this execption ..........................I have one more problem say if I calculate 1+1+1 the result that cums is 13 ie it takes the previous value entered also so for this also I need a solution if u have any suggestion please feel free and tell me I would be pleased................
:) Thank you

Paste the code till how much you tried.
Put printStackTrace() and find out where exactly you got the error.Ramya:cool:

Can you post the full text of the error message and show what the input was that causes the error?

The problem that I face now is continues numbers say if we add 1+2+3 the answer we get is 36 where the previous valueentered is also taken

What did you see in the printed output? You need to analyze it to see where your logic is wrong.
Not many people have the ME dev kit. If you'd rewrite the code to use Swing then others could compile and test the code to see what's wrong with your logic.
Can you explain how the calculator is supposed to work. Does the user type in the expression: 1+2+3 and press enter? Or ?
Some comments:
txt.setText(" ");
txt.setText(String.valueOf(result));

Some more ideas:
Disable the text field so user can't enter data
Enable/disable buttons so the user can't use them in the wrong order.
Do this by have groups/arrays of buttons that should be enabled/disabled at the same time and a method to do the setting.
For example groups: the numbers, the operators, the equal sign.
Have different actionListeners for each group of buttons.
Then in your code start with only enabling the numbers.
After the first number then enable operators.
After an operator, disable operators
After next number, enable equals.
This will force user to enter in correct order.

If you convert the logic part of the code to Swing or AWT then others can help. Not all of us have ME

Use code tags when posting large pieces of code.
Do you have a question?

Your code must be sensitive to what the next allowable input is. This is call its 'state'.
For example initially only a number or a unary  is allowed.
Once you have a number, then only numbers, . or an operator is allowed
Once you get a . no more . are allowed and only numbers are allowed
Once you get an operator then only numbers or . are allowed.
once you get a number then only number, . or = are allowed
If you get a . then only number is allowed.
Some of this can be done by enabling/disabling the input buttons. Some has to be done by remembering the state with booleans and tests in the code.
Again:
If you convert the logic part of the code to Swing or AWT then others can help. Not all of us have ME
