Hello,

I have to do this problem and I can't get it to work correctly. There is
something wrong with the display.
I have to have it display on the applet string "this number is greater" or
"numbers are equal" Here is the
source code.
If anyone can help, I would be extremely appreciative. I have been working
on this for almost a week and
I am ready to pull out my hair.

import java.awt.Graphics; //import class Graphics
import javax.swing.*; //import package javax.swing

public class FloatingApplet extends JApplet {

double sum;
public void init ()
{
String firstNumber, //first string number
secondNumber, //second string number
result; //result string number

double number1, //first number to double
number2; //second number to double

//read in first number from user
firstNumber =
JOptionPane.showInputDialog (
"Enter first floating-point value");

secondNumber =
JOptionPane.showInputDialog (
"Enter second floating-point value");

//convert numbers from type string to type double
number1 = Double.parseDouble (firstNumber);
number2 = Double.parseDouble (secondNumber);

//initialize result to empty string
result = "";

if ( number1 > number2 )
result = result + number1 + ">" + number2 ;

if (number1 < number2)
result = result + number1 + "<" + number2 ;

if (number1 == number2)
result = result + number1 + " == " + number2
;


}
public void paint ( Graphics g)
//draw the results with g.drawstring
{
g.drawRect (15, 10, 270, 20);
g.drawString ( "" , 25,25 );

}
}
