Your prder in dpendent on the order of integers in the array btnNmaes that we declare at the top

So if you say:

String [] btnNames  = {"36", "0", "2,", "4", "8","33"}

tha would be the order of your buttons (sorry dont rememeber how theye are on the roulette)

You also should take into account which layout you are using and how it populates.

If you just use FlowLayout() it will populate them in the order you area adding
