Hy everyone,
Im try to valadate a input dialog: so that the value can only be between 1 & 100.

As you can see its valadated so that only numbers can be entered....Could you please show me how this is done....
Thanks in advance joe kane

int value = Integer.parseInt(choice1);
boolean between1And100 = (value >= 1) && (value <= 100);
You'll need to catch the possible NumberFormatException.

Billybob Marshall has already explained that easiest is to convert the string to an int & check that the int is between 1 & 100.
I want to point out that you don't need a while loop to test if choice is null. You can do this with an if statement.

while (between1And100 = false)
This is no good. between1And100 = false is an assignment statement. Here between1And100 is assigned a value of false, and this assigned value is then used to evaluate the condition of the loop, which would always be false. Perhaps you want to use the comparison operator ==.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
