I'm trying to write some code that will allow me to move a counter on a chessboard. Got the board and counter, but the counter won't move. Thanks in advance for any help.
import java.applet.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
public class Romeo extends Applet implements MouseListener,
MouseMotionListener {

private Point snail1, mouse;
private int select;
public void init() {
this.addMouseMotionListener(this);
this.addMouseListener(this);
select = 0;
snail1 = new Point (25,25);
mouse = new Point();
}

public void paint(Graphics g)
{
drawRect(g);
g.setColor (Color.red);
g.fillOval (snail1.x, snail1.y, 30,30);
}
public void mouseDragged(MouseEvent e) {
mouse = e.getPoint();
// continuously change the coordinates of the selected counter
if (select == 1) snail1 = mouse;
repaint();
}
public void mousePressed(MouseEvent e) {
//select a counter using the mouse
mouse = e.getPoint();
if (mouse.x > snail1.x - 5 && mouse.x < snail1.x + 5 &&
mouse.y > snail1.y - 5 && mouse.y < snail1.y + 5) select = 1;
}

// required for the interface
public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent event){}
public void mouseReleased(MouseEvent event){}
public void mouseEntered(MouseEvent event){}
public void mouseExited(MouseEvent event){}
public void mouseMoved(MouseEvent event){}

public void drawRect(Graphics g) {
g.setColor (Color.black);

Hi Cameron,
Welcome to JavaRanch!
I tried your code and seems to work fine, just that the red circle is not centered to the point.
replace

by

and you should get what you want.
