code:
import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.Graphics;

public class L5a1 extends JApplet{

int num1,
count;



public void init()
{

String one;

one = JOptionPane.showInputDialog ( "Enter first number, 1-30 please:" );



//converts string to integer
num1 = Integer.parseInt(one);



}

public void paint ( Graphics g )
{

String output = "";

if (num1 > 30 || num1 < 0 )
{
g.drawString("The number does not meet specs!", 10, 10);
}

for (int count = 0; count < num1; count++)
{
g.drawString("*", count, 10);
output += "*";
}




}

}

I need to write an applet that reads five numbers (each between 1 and 30). For each number read, I need todraw a line containing that number of adjacent asterisks. If it reads the number seven, it should print *******.


this is what i have now, but im not sure why the spacing of the astericks are so small, they are bunching up...

please help thanks
