I need to set the text to the 1st  button (1 second), and the 2nd-10th buttons 2 seconds - 10 seconds. I can see (seconds 1) but need some help to get the text the other way. Also with (("" + n, Color.green, Color.black);)


for (int i=0; i<10; i++)
     {
       JButton b = new JButton();
       b.setPreferredSize( new Dimension( 40, 20 ) );
       b.setText("seconds"+(i+1);
       buttons.put("b"+(i+1), b);
       b.addActionListener(this);
       JButton jcoloredbutton = new JColoredButton("" + n, Color.green, Color.black);
     gridPanel.add(b);
}

or just do it in the ctor:
JButton b = new JButton((i+1)+" seconds");

You need

if (i > 0) {
    b.setText("" + (i+1) "second");
}
else {
    b.setText("" + (i+1) "seconds")
}

Sorry - wrong way around:

if (i > 0) {
   b.setText("" + (i+1) "seconds")
}
else {
   b.setText("" + (i+1) "second");
}

...but you need a space before the 's'


  b.setText("" + (i+1) " seconds")

>>JButton b = new JButton(i==0?"1 second":(i+1)+" seconds");

That's really the same code logic as i posted, but in a less readable form

>>and no call to setText needed :)

setText will get called whether you call it explicitly or not ;-)

...although i admit that

>>"1 second"

is a small advance ;-)

Thats good considering its answering the same q :P
The readability is questionable though.

is a small advance ;-)  you are right I really need to start with 2 seconds up to 12 but I thought I could work that out later.

You both have given me the answer to my question. I will use both ways in different classes. I have raised the points because of that.

Thanks for all the support,
Christopher

if you need to start at 2 then use my original comment form as no need to worry about plural
