Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1termLab.add(termLab, console); you definitely can't do that. just what the compiler is saying: you can add a container to itself. when the compiler errors, it will give you a line number. Go to the line number as a starting point to solve.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well one thing I have learned is that it is usually the really simple things that get over looked. I was have some trouble with my previous version and it was as simple as not adding a button to my listener. That too took a second pair of eyes to point out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1heh yea always happens. if you find yourself looking the same problem for over 30 minutes, it can often be good to take a break, even for another 30 minutes. then you get a fresh look at it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I will mos def get you a medal. the program works now. It just has some major formatting issues that shouldn't be too hard to fix (I hope).
