I have a few ideas,maybe you can evaluate them and their difficulty to implement:

- Exception handling..i'll try to figure out something
- Undo/Redo
- Different color schemes
- Adding classical background music that can be turned ON/OFF
- Print the generated puzzle
- Replace the icons
- Maybe include some sort of animations


I'm using NetBeans btw...please guys, i'm in urgent need for your help

Does anyone know how to run a sound file from within a program??

I want the user to click a button and an external sound file runs...sorta background music.

Moreover, how can I do simple text animations??? - really simple-

Never do these things:
- Adding unnecessary sounds
- Adding fun animation (use this only if it is needed)
- Bright colors

Preferable things:
- Make it more simple
- Don't use too much try-catch .. do only if the thing is out of your control; let is crash :smile:
- Make everything more accessible

Tutorial: http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/

Adding sound:
there's a class for that. I don't remember it's name but it's two line codes

Animations:
I only know simple ones

loop
Thread.Sleep (1000);
Xfuncton();

Xfunction()
//move things around
use x-y cods or other color properties

thanks a million man.

I have something in mind, Is there a way in which I can change the text in textfield/area/label during runtime? I want to create a flashing effect with text..and to do that I'll make a thread that setText() into something "My example" then into nothing "" and then sleep for a sec, by that it should create a blinking effect.
Also, in the application i am using FlowLayout, can I manually change the co-oridnates of the components or is it determined for good?

Those are possible.. much easier if you use netbeans.

It would be really crazy if you are doing all this to a business applications =:)
