    This right here is the program I'm writing. I'm having big time difficulty. Basically, what I'm trying to do is initially have a text box pop up, that asks the user for a number. Based on their response, theres one of two graphs that will than show up. My basic idea is to use an if, else statement for having these graphs appear. The only problem is that I'm completely unaware how to link the action of what the user types in the text box, to the type of graph that shows up. I don't know where you would put your public class final extends applet versus where you would put your public static void main(String[] args) { and where the if else statement should be

    Are you sure you can use the work 'Final' for your class name? i know that final is a reserved word.

    Will have a look

    I haven't really played with graphics and graphs etc.. but when i run the program as an 'applet' all it loads is the graphics in there standard position in an applet window. But If i run it as an application it loads the main JPanel box and then does nothing (mostly because your main does nothing else... - Not sure how to accompany them together!
