Would someone please give me an example of a program that increments and decrements values with just the use of combo box and buttons, no other stuffs like a JDialog or even JTable. I'm having a hard time trying to understand complicated programs after all I'm just a newbie in java, so I need a very simple one that is easy to understand.

the code is this:

import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import java.util.Scanner;

    public class EditStack {
    private JComboBox comboBox = new JComboBox();
    private JButton button = new JButton("Add Order");
    private JButton button_1 = new JButton("Decrease Order");
    JComboBox combo;
    private static String z  = "";
    private static String w  = "";
    private static String x  = "";
    private static String a  = "";
    private int numClick = 0;
public EditStack() {

    String mgaPagkainTo[] = {"PM1 (Paa/ Spicy Paa with Thigh part)","PM2 (Pecho)","PM3 (Pork Barbeque 4 pcs.)","PM4 (Bangus Sisig)","PM5 (Pork Sisig)","PM6 (Bangus Inihaw)","SM1 (Paa)","SM2 (Pork Barbeque 2 pcs.)","Pancit Bihon","Dinuguan at Puto","Puto","Ensaladang Talong","Softdrinks","Iced Tea","Halo-Halo","Leche Flan","Turon Split"};
    JFrame frame = new JFrame("Mang Inasal Ordering System");
    JPanel panel = new JPanel();
    combo = new JComboBox(mgaPagkainTo);

    combo.addActionListener(new ActionListener(){
    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e){
        String str = (String)combo.getSelectedItem();
        a = str;
        EditLang messageOrder1 = new EditLang();

    button.addActionListener(new ActionListener() { //this is the part I'm stuck with
        public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
            String selectedItem = (String) comboBox.getSelectedItem(); // I want here to display the selected item in the combo box
            numClick++ // and then increment it whenever I clicked on the add button

  public static void main(String[] args) {
  Scanner inp = new Scanner(;
  boolean ulitinMoPows = true;
  boolean tryAgain = true;

    System.out.print("\nInput Customer Name: ");
    String customerName = inp.nextLine();
    w = customerName;
    System.out.print("\nInput Cashier Name: ");
    String user = inp.nextLine();
    z = user;
    System.out.print("\nInput either Dine In or Take Out: ");
    String dInDOut = inp.nextLine();
    x = dInDOut;
        if (x.equals("Dine In") || x.equals("Take Out")){
         ulitinMoPows = false;
         JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Try again! Please input Dine In or Take Out only!","Error", JOptionPane.ERROR_MESSAGE);
             ulitinMoPows = true;
             System.out.print ("\f");
    System.out.print("\nInput password: ");
    String pass = inp.nextLine();
        EditLang messageShowMenu = new EditLang();
        tryAgain = false;
        JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Try again! Invalid password!","Error Logging-In", JOptionPane.ERROR_MESSAGE);
    tryAgain = true;
     System.out.print ("\f");

EditStack j = new EditStack();
  public static String kuhaOrder()
  return a;

  public static String kuhaUserName()
  return z;

  public static String kuhaCustomerName()
  return w;

  public static String kuhaSanKainPagkain()
  return x;
//Class of EditLang:

public class EditLang {

public void ShowMo(){
    String user = EditStack.kuhaUserName();
    System.out.print("\n\n\t\tCashier: " +user);
    String dInDOut = EditStack.kuhaSanKainPagkain();
    System.out.print("                          "+dInDOut);
    String customerName = EditStack.kuhaCustomerName();
    System.out.print("\n\t\tCustomer Name: " +customerName);

public void ShowOrderPo() {
    String order = EditStack.kuhaOrder();
    System.out.print("\t\t\t\t\n " +order);

//I want to do something like that. Any help will be appreciated thanks!
