I am making a object oriented program and hashing the list of make of an electronic and type to the JCombobox...i am getting this number Exception error...it will nice if you could tell why am i getting it eventhough i am doing the casting and everything. Try to help ASAP! thank you. Here's my code.
The following code is for buyPrinterDialog box.
public class BuyPrinters extends JDialog {

    Number exception errors are typically execution time errors. You will need to check your data for any irregular data input.

    The way to go about debugging it is to find out from the message on which source code line the error has occurred, and then trace back from there the probable variable that caused the error, and finally the data, or data conversion.

    Even though you may have cast every numeric value, if the code is trying to parse a String or null into a number, the run-time error will occur.

    Give it a trace and see if you can find the source of the error.

    Also, typically, the kind of statements as:

    Float price = Float.parseFloat(textField.getText());


    would be best put inside a try-loop to catch any unexpected run-time errors.

    thanks...yes i found the error. It was basically trying to parse a null which is a string. Yes i can try and catch the exception but haven't learned it but thanks for idea...i think i mite do that.

    Good to hear!
