I am writing a coinToss applet. I have got the applet written except I can't figue out how to get my (tails Field) tlsField, and my (heads Field) hdsField to keep a running count as you press the toss button. They keep reseting there values back to the initial value of 1. There is a Flip Field in the code that does nothing yet because I haven't written a method to set the field to true or false yet. should I do it as a boolean or just as a string?
Here is the code

You need to create two variables that stores the coins count.
int headscounter = 0;
int tailscounter = 0;
These need to be initialized outside of your actionPerformed or they will reset to 0 everytime. Then, when a flip is decided, just increment one of the two variables.
headscounter++
or
tailscounter++

Happy Coding,
