Please tell me if I'm correct in thinking there's something wrong with this example. I found in the "Complete Java 2 Certification Guide"
Button btn;
btn = new Button("Pink");
changer(btn);
System.out.println(btn.getLabel());
public void changer(Button replaceMe) {
changeMe.setLabel("Blue");
}
Shouldn't changeMe and replaceMe be the same name?
Thanks

You should report that error.
Hopefully, the publisher will be able to fix that in the next printing.

Thanks.
Will do, it confused me at first. I thought I was missing something, but the longer I looked at it the more I became convinced it was a typo. One of the variable names was used in a previous example.
