  1. In Topic: Help me find the functional interface

    Posted 20 May 2014

    This is a wild guess, but based on the correct use of .addActionListener is ( e -> /*insert method or code body here*/ );

    I would suggest the correct use of your example would be evaluator.setQuitAction( action -> isLooping = false );
  2. In Topic: Trying to assign random numbers to a deck of cards

    Posted 15 May 2014

    You seriously need to considder better variable names than this..

    Random is probably going to be spitting out duplicate numbers. Try something like this:

    import java.util.Random;
    public class Hokm {
    	Random r = new Random();
    	int[] usedNumbers = new int[52];
    	void generate52UniqueRandomNumbers() {
    		for(int i = 0; i < usedNumbers.length; i++) { // iterate over the array index
    			int thisPass = r.nextInt(52)+1; // create a random number
    			for(int j : usedNumbers) { // iterate over the array
    				if(j==thisPass) continue; // check this random number is not already present
    			usedNumbers[i] = thisPass; // we will only reach this line if we have a unique number
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    		new Hokm().generate52UniqueRandomNumbers();
  3. In Topic: MVC help?

    Posted 15 May 2014

    Anything GUI-related (including buttons) go in the view class. Anything related to storing data goes into your model class and anything to do with changing the data or the gui components goes into your controller class.

    The main reason for the MVC pattern is to decouple your GUI from your main program. So the first step would be to create a program that does not require a GUI, then build one that can send the signals through the controller to 'read/write' data from the model.
  4. In Topic: I need help with methods involving loops

    Posted 15 May 2014

    Well, if you think about it, within that loop the variable 'd' will remain referenced to one object. This will simply repeat the one display text n times. Is that what you wanted?
    Otherwise you would need a Collection or array of them passed into the method.
  5. In Topic: I need help with methods involving loops

    Posted 14 May 2014

    You've got it inside out :) A method can only return once. What you need to do is perhaps have a collection of displayables and call displayText() on them.

    Displayable[] collection = generateDisplayables(); // let's assume this creates an array of 20 displayables
    for(int i = 0; i < collection.length; i++) { // loop until end of collection
