buttonGroup.getSelection() returns the selected button model...

or you may want to check each radio button if it is selected,

for e.g.,

if( nickelRadioButton.isSelected() ){

}else if( dimeRadioButton.isSelected() ){

}....

When I try this I get cannot refer to a non-final variable... I tried putting it in the depostCoin button action event, is this the wrong place for it?
