I'm just messing around with this code as a little thing for New Years since it's coming up. I know what's wrong but I can't seem to fix it. Please take a look at case 2 and default to see if there are any helpful suggestions I can use to fix my program up. In case 2, I'm attempting to try to count down from the amount of seconds the user inputs in. In the default, I'm not exactly sure if I set up the do-while loop correctly.

The for() loop at line 57 is free running, i.e. it has no delay.

Line 57: Seconds is a String and interval is an int. You can't assign a String to an int. This will be a compiler error. You should clean up all your compilation errors prior to posting -or- at least cut&paste the compilation error message into the post.

Line 57: Why have a loop at all? Just print out the interval and then decrement it by one.
