I have a jbutton where I use setIcon to try and change it, however it does not change.  I have
tried Button.invalidate() Button.revalidate() and Button.repaint()... None of this has caused the
image to change. Any suggestions?

public void keyReleased(KeyEvent KE) //Text area handler
{
      for(int i=0;i<5;i++)//5 texts match with 5 Dice
      {
            if(KE.getSource() == Text[i])
            {
                  if (Integer.parseInt(Text[i].getText()) > 6)
                        Text[i].setText("" + 6);
                  else if (Integer.parseInt(Text[i].getText()) <1)
                        Text[i].setText("" + 1);
                  URL Image = getClass().getResource("/"+String.valueOf(i+1)+ ".jpg"); //Images are all named 0.jpg ,1.jpg,2.jpg,3.jpg (through 6)
                  Icon ThePic = new ImageIcon(Image);
                  Dice[i].setIcon(ThePic);
            }
      }
}
There is the code I am using to set the images based on the value of a textfield.  It is identical to the code
which sets them to start with including the for-loop:

for(int i=0;i<5;i++)
{
      Dice[i] = new JButton();
      URL Image = getClass().getResource("/"+String.valueOf(i+1)+ ".jpg");
      Icon ThePic = new ImageIcon(Image);
      Dice[i].setIcon(ThePic);
}

Nevermind, you are right, wrong filename.  I forgot to retrieve the value of the text.. I was just using the number, thanks.
