I have to create an applet where i have two different text fields and need to store the input from each field into an array. Please help!!! Also, how can i initialize the number of elements in the array just from the number of times the user clicks the "enter" button?

Try to do the following things...

TextField t = new TextField();
String Test[] = new String[50];

in the main()

Test[0] = t.getText();

This is the easy way of doing it... :o)

And about the User 'ENTER' press, try with an int that keeps track of the number of times the 'ENTER' button been pressed...

Another option is to use a Vector instead of an array, that way you can use Vector.add(text) instead of specifying a fixed-size array.
