Hi -
Essentially, what I'm trying to do is create an applet that will accept a double (degree/radian/whatever) into the constructor and then a dial will go along with it. For example, if the value passed is 34, I want the dial to indicate 34 degrees. Has anyone done this before? I could use a starting point.
Thanks,
Kevin

Hi Kevin,
You need to look at the API for the Graphics2D class and classes that implement the Shape interface. You will probably want to create a class that extends either a Panel or JPanel depending on whick JDK you're using and override the paint method in that class to draw your dial.
Hope this helps

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
