GUI button sequence to open door (java)

I'm new to javascript and I'm trying to think of how to do this. Basically I want to click a sequence of buttons to unlock a door.

alt text

So upon entering the right combination it would set a boolean to true, allowing the player to enter the next area. I've seen some other ways to do a door key code, with using textfields and a variable "stringToEdit" but it doesn't really suit how my game plays.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm just writing the algorithm. You should convert this to javascript.

Pass = "3462"

CorrectCount = 0

Succeed = false


Key = Get pressed key

if Key = Pass[CorrectCount] CorrectCount else CorrectCount=0

if CorrectCount=Pass.Length{


break loop

Sorry, my PSU blew and I've not been able to get to a computer until now. I'm unsure how to go about converting this to java

I'm sorry to say that but if you can't convert a simple algorithm into your programming language, you shouldn't be developing a game. You should be practicing your programming skills first. Please don't take me wrong. I'm just suggesting for your good.

Yeah, I get you. Just trying to learn as I go I guess. Since I generally just make the environments, not aiming to be a programmer really. Just need some basics to make a small interactive environment.

hmm I see. You are right.
