hi i am using java to make a quiz... i am using JFrame and have radio buttons so the user can give his answer. For example:

Who co-stared with Leonardo Dicaprio in the movie Titanic?
Kate winslett.
No i have a radio button in front of it and i have four options. I want to tell the user if its a right or wrong. I wanna compare compare the answwer with the radiobutton he clicked? how do i do that since they are incomparable types?

    The radio buttons don't really care what you wrote to the user. It only knows from you what to do if the user picks button 1, or 2, or 3, etc.
    You should have an array (if you have many questions) to indicate which answer is correct for which question. Then program the messages accordingly.
