    Default Formatting numbers?

    hey im having a small problem right here.

    im making this little program that calculates stuff, but whenever the number gets too big it turns it into a number like this: 1.0E7
    instead of: 10000000

    do you guys know how i'm going to fix this?

    this is my code:
    Java Code:
    if(e.getSource()==b1 && box.getSelectedItem()==fish[0]){
    				String xp1 = txt1.getText();
    				int xp2 = Integer.parseInt(xp1);
    				String xp3 = txt2.getText();
    				int xp4 = Integer.parseInt(xp3);
    				double xpleft = xp4 - xp2 ;
    				double fishleft = xpleft / 13300;
    				JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "XP left: "+"\t"+xpleft+"\n"+"Fishes left: "+"\t"+fishleft+"\n"+"\n"+"NOTE: always round these numbers."+"\n"+"example: fish left: 1,87 = fish left: 2.", "Fishing Calculator", JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE);

    Have you looked through the API documentation? Hint: the name of the class starts with an F and ends with 'ormatter'.
