I'm stuck on my tictactoe game, i'm just trying to get my users move to show up when they select it, but i cant get it to show up? Can some one see what I did wrong...
(my main class)
import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.JComponent;
import javax.swing.JOptionPane;

public class TicTacToe {

//instance variables
private char[] _board;
private BoardDisplay _drawingPanel;
private UserMove _input;

//Size of frame
public static int HEIGHT = 300;
public static int WIDTH = HEIGHT;
public static int BOX = 9;

//TicTacToe constructer
public TicTacToe() {
//Window
JFrame main = new JFrame("TicTacToe!");
main.setSize(WIDTH, HEIGHT);
main.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
//Drawing Panel
_drawingPanel = new BoardDisplay(this);
main.add(_drawingPanel);
main.setVisible(true);
//Board
_board = new char[BOX];

//User move
_input = new UserMove();


}
public void playGame(){
int box = _input.getUserMove();
_board[box] = 'x';

}

public char[] getBoard(){
return _board;
}



public static void main(String[] args){
TicTacToe ttt = new TicTacToe();
ttt.playGame();
ttt.getBoard();

}
}
(my user move)

import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
public class UserMove {

/**
* Creates a new <code>UserMove</code> instance.
*
*/
public int getUserMove(){
int answer;
do{
String box = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Pick a number box to place your move");
if(box.equals("1")){
answer = 0;
}
else if(box.equals("2")){
answer = 1;
}
else if(box.equals("3")){
answer = 2;
}
else if(box.equals("4")){
answer = 3;
}
else if(box.equals("5")){
answer = 4;
}
else if(box.equals("6")){
answer = 5;
}
else if(box.equals("7")){
answer = 6;
}
else if(box.equals("8")){
answer = 7;
}
else if(box.equals("9")){
answer = 8;
}
else{
answer = 10;
System.out.print("Not a valid box!");}
}while(answer == 10);
return answer;
}
}
