    Default more help with my applet

    this is for hangman

    why doesnt this add wrong letters to wrong letter field eventhough it should?
    i attached a pic of the GUI

    Java Code:
    private void guessButtonActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {                                            
    guess = letterEnter.getText();
    boolean letterCorrect = false;
    if (guess.length()>1) //checks to see if the guess is only 1 char long
    {
    letterEnter.setText("");
    }
    else
    {
    for (int i = 0; i<=correctWord.length()-1; i++)  // compares guessletter with every letter in correct word
    {
        String tester = correctWord.substring(i,i+1);
        //System.out.println(guess+"hi");
        if (guess.equals(tester))
        {
            letterCorrect = true;
            correctSpot1.setText(guess);
            break;
        }
        else 
    if (letterCorrect = false)
    {
            System.out.println("aa");
     wrongLetterField.setText(wrongLetterField.getText()+letterEnter.getText());
    }
    }
    }
        }                                           
    
        private void setCorrectWordActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {                                               
    correctWord = wordEnter.getText();
    }

    Don't know if it will fix the problem your seeing, but you have an error in the following:
    Java Code:
    if (letterCorrect [B][COLOR="Red"]=[/COLOR][/B] false)
    You're doing an assignment... not a comparation. It should be as follows:
    Java Code:
    if (letterCorrect [B][COLOR="Blue"]==[/COLOR][/B] false)
    Luck,

    Or better yet,
    Java Code:
    if (!letterCorrect)
