    Default Tried everything can't find a solution

    Hey, so currently I am trying to make a stand alone program, and what i want it to do is when a button is pressed it will present more options for it. I've tried looking everywhere to find something that can get me started on this program but nothing seems to help. Can anyone help me, please?

    -Anthony

    What have you tried to code? I assume you are just learning Java so check out the tutorials and examples at the link in my signature. And using buttons, events, and other GUI related activities is relatively advanced for someone new to Java.

    Thank you for replying. Well it's supposed to be all visual, and I'm coming from python programming in Junior year. I tried to learn Java by watching tutorials and how to make 2D games, but most of them, to be completely honest, have been useless with my learning. Nothing I find seems to help me understand Java. I did do Greenfoot, but that won't help now that I'm not using Greenfoot. So i'm stuck.

    you should first learn all of the basics.

    use this: thenewboston - YouTube


    then look for java beginner tutorials.

    You problem is wanting to go into stuff with a graphical user interface. GUIs are inherently difficult; they require a pre-existing understanding (not knowledge - understanding) of software engineering. Which you don't have yet! Event driven code, multi threading, object oriented design. Quite difficult to master.

    So do what has been recommended: start simple. My advice to people learning is to create a command prompt hangman game. You'd think that is trivial, you'll be surprised. You'll be dealing with basic application flow, you need to read a file to get a dictionary of words, you need to be able to randomly pick a word from that dictionary, you need to maintain application state (score, guessed letters, number of wrong guesses) and there is even some separation between "business logic" (your game) and the "view" in there as you need to be able to draw the partly guessed word while also visually making it clear which letters have not been guessed yet (I use underscores for that).
