im trying to create a program that uses a method
getData to read 10 strings in an array from a TextField. Im getting an error on the method getData that says 'class' or 'interface' expected. Can anyone help me on this issue? thanks --jbowl
private TextField input;
private String [] stringArray = new String [10];
public void init()
{ input = new TextField (20);
add (input);
input.addActionListener (this);}
public void paint(Graphics g)
{ getData(stringArray);
g.drawString(toString(), 50,50);}
public void actionPerformed (ActionEvent e)
{ input.setText(null);
repaint ();}
// This section below contains the method getData
public void getData (String [] array)
{for (int i=0; i< array.length; i++)
array [i] = (input.getText());}

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.
