I'm trying to change the font of the output, but for some reason it's not working. In question are lines 68-71. I'm trying to change the font to Gray. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm assuming I did something wrong?

JLabel.setFont(new Font("Courier New", Font.ITALIC, 12));
JLabel.setForeground(Color.GRAY);
