Need some help with a sort

10-11  Source: Network gathering  Views:0 

I'm trying to make a program that produces a 2-D array and graphically sorts the numbers inside of it. In one column is the random numbers and in the other are the x values for the bars that represent the length of each random number. What I want the program to do is step through the array and find the smallest random number (in column 0) and move it to the appropriate spot in the array sorting from smallest to largest. As the random numbers in column 0 move I also want the x values in column 1 to swap the same way. I have this set up with a timer so that you can see the sort take place one step at a time but there's something wrong with the way I have my sort set up because it's not working properly. I just need some direction on how to get that part of it to work.
Here's the code for the main method:
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;
public class Sort2
   public static void main (String[] args)
      JFrame frame = new JFrame ("Sort");
      frame.setDefaultCloseOperation (JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
      frame.getContentPane().add(new SortPanel2());
Here's the panel code:
import java.util.Random;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;
public class SortPanel2 extends JPanel
     private final int DELAY = 1000;
    private final int WIDTH = 800, HEIGHT = 400, BARWIDTH = 20;
    public static int y=0;
    public static int index = 0, scan;
    private int h1,h2,h3,h4,h5,h6,h7,h8,h9,h10,h11,h12,h13,h14,h15;
     private Timer timer;
     public int [][] randomnumbers = new int[15][2];
     public SortPanel2()
           timer = new Timer(DELAY, new SortListener());
           setPreferredSize (new Dimension(WIDTH, HEIGHT));
           setBackground (Color.white);
          Random gen = new Random();
          for (int x=0; x < 15; x++)
               randomnumbers[x][0] = gen.nextInt(100)+10;
               randomnumbers[x][1] = (50*x) +50;
          h1 = randomnumbers[0][0] * 3;
          h2 = randomnumbers[1][0] * 3;
          h3 = randomnumbers[2][0] * 3;
          h4 = randomnumbers[3][0] * 3;
          h5 = randomnumbers[4][0] * 3;
          h6 = randomnumbers[5][0] * 3;
          h7 = randomnumbers[6][0] * 3;
          h8 = randomnumbers[7][0] * 3;
          h9 = randomnumbers[8][0] * 3;
          h10 = randomnumbers[9][0] * 3;
          h11 = randomnumbers[10][0] * 3;
          h12 = randomnumbers[11][0] * 3;
          h13 = randomnumbers[12][0] * 3;
          h14 = randomnumbers[13][0] * 3;
          h15 = randomnumbers[14][0] * 3;
          for (int y=0;y < 15; y++)
        public void paintComponent (Graphics page)
           super.paintComponent (page);
           page.fillRect(randomnumbers[0][1], 0, BARWIDTH, h1);
           page.fillRect(randomnumbers[1][1], 0, BARWIDTH, h2);
           page.fillRect(randomnumbers[2][1], 0, BARWIDTH, h3);
           page.fillRect(randomnumbers[3][1], 0, BARWIDTH, h4);
           page.fillRect(randomnumbers[4][1], 0, BARWIDTH, h5);
           page.fillRect(randomnumbers[5][1], 0, BARWIDTH, h6);
           page.fillRect(randomnumbers[6][1], 0, BARWIDTH, h7);
           page.fillRect(randomnumbers[7][1], 0, BARWIDTH, h8);
           page.fillRect(randomnumbers[8][1], 0, BARWIDTH, h9);
           page.fillRect(randomnumbers[9][1], 0, BARWIDTH, h10);
           page.fillRect(randomnumbers[10][1], 0, BARWIDTH, h11);
           page.fillRect(randomnumbers[11][1], 0, BARWIDTH, h12);
           page.fillRect(randomnumbers[12][1], 0, BARWIDTH, h13);
           page.fillRect(randomnumbers[13][1], 0, BARWIDTH, h14);
           page.fillRect(randomnumbers[14][1], 0, BARWIDTH, h15);
        private class SortListener implements ActionListener
           public void actionPerformed (ActionEvent event)
         int min;
         int temp1, temp2;
              while (index < randomnumbers.length)
                    min = index;
                    scan = index + 1;
                    while (scan < randomnumbers.length)
                     if (randomnumbers[scan][0] < randomnumbers[min][0])
                          min = scan;
                          System.out.println("Minimum: "+randomnumbers[min][0]+" Minimum Address: "+ min);
                              temp1 = randomnumbers[min][0];
                              temp2 = randomnumbers[min][1];
                              randomnumbers[min][0] = randomnumbers[index][0];
                              randomnumbers[min][1] = randomnumbers[index][1];
                              randomnumbers[index][0] = temp1;
                              randomnumbers[index][1] = temp2;
                     scan ++;
