newbie here, hi all
Could someone show me how to read a variable from one class to another for example, i have a file called program1 and program 2, heres a snippet. In program2 I want to pull the value from program1 but the code doesnt seem to work, in program1 i have made the values public i.e. public int ... , ...;
program1:
public String toString() {
stringA += "my name"+myname+"last name" + lastname;
return stringA
}
program2:
System.out.println(program1.lastname);
