Okay, that's a lot of code; so to be honest, I haven't looked at it.

But my suggestion is to add lots of println statements at various points, to determine what the values are at each stage.

Look at the actionPerformed method of your JudgeListener; especially lines 73 - 89.

In line 74, you declare a variable called result which you set to 0. In line 88, you are printing the value of that variable. But nowhere in between lines 74 and 88 are you assigning any other value to result, so it will still be 0 when the program reaches line 88, and it will always print 0.

Probably you meant to write this in line 86:

tried
result = judge.getResult();
but still wont work. i have used the debugger to make sure the data is ok up until this last part where its gone because i am not storing it after getResult (i think) - but i am not sure how to do that.

when you make these calls:



you are not saving what comes back. Therefore, the values are lost. As Jesper says, you need to save these values, and then print the variable where you saved them.

You can put the results anywhere you want; if you want a Component which the user can't alter, setting the text on a JLabel sounds a good idea.

In your actionPerformed() method of the JudgeListener class, you have a variable called "result". I would suggest you use this to store the result.

result = judge.getResult();

 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
