I am using the Mindprod link fargo gave, but i still fail to see what is wrong with this...

else if (actionCommand.equals("Binary"))
                  result = Integer.praseInt(ioField.getText());
                  ioField.setText(Integer.toString(result, 2));

i get the error

---------- Java Compiler ----------
Calculator.java:280: cannot find symbol
symbol  : method praseInt(java.lang.String)
location: class java.lang.Integer
                  result = Integer.praseInt(ioField.getText());
1 error

Output completed (1 sec consumed) - Normal Termination

any ideas, i already import java.lang.*

result = Integer.praseInt(ioField.getText());
should be
 result = Integer.parseInt(ioField.getText());

spelling mistake
