Int equals void
I am building a applet that can read inputs from the user to make codons for DNA, so my teacher can use it. It reads the first three characters to make a codon, uses those characters to get a value (1, 2, 3 or 4), takes those character values to make a codon value (1  64), and then changes that codon value into the Amino Acid name. I am trying to take this int value, called codonNumber, and make it equal a different number, called from a void called getCodon. Can anyone help me? This is my error:
Java Code:/tmp/jc_20900/DNA.java:144: getCodon(int) in DNA cannot be applied to () codonNumber = getCodon(); ^ 1 error
Java Code:if(firstInput != 0 && secondInput != 0 && thirdInput != 0) { codonNumber = getCodon(); } } public static void getCodon(int codonNumber){ if(firstInput == 1) { if(secondInput == 1) { if(thirdInput == 1) { codonNumber = 1; } else if(thirdInput == 2) { codonNumber = 2; } else if(thirdInput == 3) { codonNumber = 3; } else if(thirdInput == 4) { codonNumber = 4; } } else if(secondInput == 2) { if(thirdInput == 1) { codonNumber = 5; } else if(thirdInput == 2) { codonNumber = 6; } else if(thirdInput == 3) { codonNumber = 7; } else if(thirdInput == 4) { codonNumber = 8; } } else if(secondInput == 3) { if(thirdInput == 1) { codonNumber = 9; } else if(thirdInput == 2) { codonNumber = 10; } else if(thirdInput == 3) { codonNumber = 11; } else if(thirdInput == 4) { codonNumber = 12; } } else if(secondInput == 4) { if(thirdInput == 1) { codonNumber = 13; } else if(thirdInput == 2) { codonNumber = 14; } else if(thirdInput == 3) { codonNumber = 15; } else if(thirdInput == 4) { codonNumber = 16; } } } else if(firstInput == 2) { if(secondInput == 1) { if(thirdInput == 1) { codonNumber = 17; } else if(thirdInput == 2) { codonNumber = 18; } else if(thirdInput == 3) { codonNumber = 19; } else if(thirdInput == 4) { codonNumber = 20; } } else if(secondInput == 2) { if(thirdInput == 1) { codonNumber = 21; } else if(thirdInput == 2) { codonNumber = 22; } else if(thirdInput == 3) { codonNumber = 23; } else if(thirdInput == 4) { codonNumber = 24; } } else if(secondInput == 3) { if(thirdInput == 1) { codonNumber = 25; } else if(thirdInput == 2) { codonNumber = 26; } else if(thirdInput == 3) { codonNumber = 27; } else if(thirdInput == 4) { codonNumber = 28; } } else if(secondInput == 4) { if(thirdInput == 1) { codonNumber = 29; } else if(thirdInput == 2) { codonNumber = 30; } else if(thirdInput == 3) { codonNumber = 31; } else if(thirdInput == 4) { codonNumber = 32; } } } else if(firstInput == 3) { if(secondInput == 1) { if(thirdInput == 1) { codonNumber = 33; } else if(thirdInput == 2) { codonNumber = 34; } else if(thirdInput == 3) { codonNumber = 35; } else if(thirdInput == 4) { codonNumber = 36; } } else if(secondInput == 2) { if(thirdInput == 1) { codonNumber = 37; } else if(thirdInput == 2) { codonNumber = 38; } else if(thirdInput == 3) { codonNumber = 39; } else if(thirdInput == 4) { codonNumber = 40; } } else if(secondInput == 3) { if(thirdInput == 1) { codonNumber = 41; } else if(thirdInput == 2) { codonNumber = 42; } else if(thirdInput == 3) { codonNumber = 43; } else if(thirdInput == 4) { codonNumber = 44; } } else if(secondInput == 4) { if(thirdInput == 1) { codonNumber = 45; } else if(thirdInput == 2) { codonNumber = 46; } else if(thirdInput == 3) { codonNumber = 47; } else if(thirdInput == 4) { codonNumber = 48; } } } else if(firstInput == 4) { if(secondInput == 1) { if(thirdInput == 1) { codonNumber = 49; } else if(thirdInput == 2) { codonNumber = 50; } else if(thirdInput == 3) { codonNumber = 51; } else if(thirdInput == 4) { codonNumber = 52; } } else if(secondInput == 2) { if(thirdInput == 1) { codonNumber = 53; } else if(thirdInput == 2) { codonNumber = 54; } else if(thirdInput == 3) { codonNumber = 55; } else if(thirdInput == 4) { codonNumber = 56; } } else if(secondInput == 3) { if(thirdInput == 1) { codonNumber = 57; } else if(thirdInput == 2) { codonNumber = 58; } else if(thirdInput == 3) { codonNumber = 59; } else if(thirdInput == 4) { codonNumber = 60; } } else if(secondInput == 4) { if(thirdInput == 1) { codonNumber = 61; } else if(thirdInput == 2) { codonNumber = 62; } else if(thirdInput == 3) { codonNumber = 63; } else if(thirdInput == 4) { codonNumber = 64; } } } }

Am I right that the codon number equals:
16*(firstInput1)+4*(secondInput1)+thirdInput?
kind regards,
Jos

Ummmmmm, no. Lol. That isn't how I had the formula. I think I know how to fix it now.

Uhm, I think this is close to what you need:
Java Code:String s4 = String.valueOf(firstInput 1) + String.valueOf(secondInput 1) + String.valueOf(thirdInput 1); codonNumber = Integer.parseInt(s4, 4) +1;

Oh great, I don't pay attention for one meager minute and they sort it all out behind my back, it's not fair! What'd happen if I started to sort things out behind their backs? Hm? That's what I'm all about, it's not fair! So there.
kind regards,
Jos (< staring at the folks with the syringes and their white coats ... ;)

Lol thanks guys for posting. I just called the void instead of making the getCodon equal the void. I mean, if you looked inside the getCodon method, you could see that it would already happen. =p Now I have to make Jmenu buttons with actions, so commands like "Transcribe" and "Translate" will work. Any help with that would be nice, or just send a URL of where it could teach it noob friendly.

Well, in the original posted code your codonNumber might be being set in the method, but it's not being past out. For example this call:
Java Code:int codonNumber = 0; getCodon(codonNumber);
