    Exclamation Help i need help on how i would start developing a program for this task on netbe

    i need help on how i would start developing a program for this task on netbeans i am pretty clueless concerning this

    Design and implement a program written in the Java Language to produce a system that will run
    successfully on the Java platform with two command buttons: up, down and a text
    window to enter ''n" pixels. These controls will operate a drawing tool composed of a moving GIF image of
    a pen in the applet window. When, say, the 'up' button is pushed, a line will be slowly drawn n pixels long.
    Four colour selector buttons additionally allow the drawing line colour to be changed.


    any help would be greatly appreciated

    So what do you already know about Java? If you want help to become less clueless then you will have to give something to work with. Have you created any applet before?

    Netbeans has nothing to do with this. You want to learn -Java-.

    I can't help someone who knows almost nothing I'm afraid. You'll have to do what everyone else does: study, learn, research, experiment. I say with honesty that this assignment is currently impossible for you to do and you're not going to get other people to do it for you.

    Baby steps.
    Do a little bit, check that works.
    Add a bit of functionality. Check that works.

    Do not try and do the whole thing at once. That way lies madness.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    By way of further encouragement:
    Your assignment has requirements for buttons, a text window, and a GIF image. If I were in your position, I'd start by making an application that shows buttons, then add a handler that fires an event when the button is pushed (like a message box) to verify the buttons are plumbed correctly. Next, I'd create a window to receive a number and alter one of the button handlers to repeat the number in a message box (to verify I can read the value and process it intenally) Finally, I'd create and display the GIF at a predetemined location, then the only remaining task is to erase and redraw the GIF baseds on the pixel value and direction buttons.
