new to java can anyone help?
Hello everyone,

So I am suppose to make a source code that displays 9 labels(3x3) like tic tac toe but instead of playing the computer or even playing I am suppose to make it display either a x,o, or a blank spot in these labels randomly. I can't figure out how to associate the images to a math.random command. any suggestions?

Re: new to java can anyone help?
one way to do this is....


import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.GridLayout;
import java.util.Random;
import java.awt.Color;

public class Triliza extends JFrame{
    private JLabel labels[][];//array of JLabels
    private Random random;
    private String validChars[]={"x","o"," "};//valid characters in an array
    public Triliza(){
        random=new Random();
        labels=new JLabel[3][3];
        setLayout(new GridLayout(3,3));
        for (int i=0;i<3;i++)
            for(int j=0;j<3;j++){
                labels[i][j]=new JLabel(validChars[random.nextInt(3)],JLabel.CENTER);//we choose randomly one element from the array of valid characters.
                labels[i][j].setBorder(BorderFactory.createLineBorder(Color.black));//we add a border for better results

    public static void main(String args[]){
        new Triliza();
