Hi, I'm trying to write a simple hangman game code everything was going will except for two things: 1) the message text is not showing
2) after restarting, the buttons won't be disabled !! I tried using toggle buttons but nothing is changed.
Any ideas ??

That's a lot of code, how about highlighting just the area that matters ?

No, put all the code in <pre> tags but indicate the parts that are not working and what you expect them to do. The formatting of this makes it very difficult to read.

Solution 1

edited the code.
 
first of all 2 small points:
 
- do not start variable names with capital letters! Your buttons don't even have a name it's just "A", "B" - change that! Capital letters are for class names.
- extract all the actions and set up a controller-class aside of that GUI-class. Make the controller the Actionlistener - you will get a much cleaner code, with much more structure.
 
to your questions:
 
1. which messege text? I can't find which one you meant. The String msg in your function entLetter(char en) is not a displayable item.
 
2. you need to reload your GUI by using this.redraw() - you don't need to set your buttons "false" in that case.

Solution 2

I have this:
Random ran = new Random();
int intRan = (int) (Math.floor(Math.random() * (str.length - 0 + 1)) + 1);
ranWord = new String(str[intRan]);
Should be:
this.ranWord = str[new Random().nextInt(str.length)];
