    Did you read my hint? Another hint: are you comparing the source of the event (getSource()) against your buttons?

    kind regards,

    Doesn't e.getSource() return the object where the event was called i.e. the JButton object?

    e.getSource() != b; because the local variable above 'b' hides the class variable b (the JButton), and the local variable b you've defined as:
    int b=Integer.parseInt(t1.getText());

    edit:
    sorry for giving that away, i had this post open from before your new posts (Jos)
