Ok hay I have a scoreboard, I need to get the timer to work this is an iteam that I failed in my class that I did last samester. I just could not get this on to work for me.
this is the score board it self and the call of the timer, what it was entended was that I would write a class that would run a timer from 25 mins donw to 0 in mins and seconds.

Code:
package scoreboard;

scoreboard app
Code:
package scoreboard;

import java.awt.Frame;
import java.awt.event.WindowAdapter;
import java.awt.event.WindowEvent;
import javax.swing.UIManager;
import java.awt.Dimension;
import java.awt.Toolkit;

public class ScoreboardApp 
{
  public ScoreboardApp()
  {
    Frame frame = new ScoreboardFrame();
    Dimension screenSize = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize();
    Dimension frameSize = frame.getSize();
    if (frameSize.height > screenSize.height)
    {
      frameSize.height = screenSize.height;
    }
    if (frameSize.width > screenSize.width)
    {
      frameSize.width = screenSize.width;
    }
    frame.setLocation((screenSize.width - frameSize.width) / 2, (screenSize.height - frameSize.height) / 2);
    frame.addWindowListener(new WindowAdapter()
      {
        public void windowClosing(WindowEvent e)
        {
          System.exit(0);
        }
      });
    frame.setVisible(true);
  }

  public static void main(String[] args)
  {
    try
    {
      UIManager.setLookAndFeel(UIManager.getSystemLookAndFeelClassName());
    }
    catch(Exception e)
    {
      e.printStackTrace();
    }

    new ScoreboardApp();
  }
}

I would like to know what I did wrong I manged to get through the class but would still like to know the answer to how to do this timer.
