I have made three textfields (txtPhone, txtMobile & txtCount)  and one button (btnAdd). I want third (txtCount) field to display 1 when there is something in either txtPhone or in txtMobile. & if both the fields have something I want txtCount to display 2. its displaying 2 no matter any field has anything or not. what am I doing wrong?

Please check my code. Thanks.
private void formWindowActivated(java.awt.event.WindowEvent evt) {
        // Window activated handling code here:
        
        txtPhone.setText(null);
        txtMobile.setText(null);
    }
private void btnAddActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {        
         if((txtPhone.getText() != null) && (txtMobile.getText() !=null))
       {
           txtCount.setText("2");
       }
       else if((txtPhone.getText() != null) || (txtMobile.getText() !=null))
       {
           txtcount.setText("1");
       }
       else
       {
                   txtcount.setText("0");
       }
}

it won't be null when empty, it will instead contain an empty string.
check for that instead

Thanks for your quick response. But I also guessed that for that I have put this code to make sure it is null when window fires up.
private void formWindowActivated(java.awt.event.WindowEvent evt) {
        // Window activated handling code here:
       
        txtPhone.setText(null);
        txtMobile.setText(null);
    }

you don't, you instead check for an empty string

txtPhone.getText().equals("")
