I am having proble with a method

Hello again,
I was wondering if I could get help with the ColorCheck method I built I think I am having problems with me putting the "Graphics page" between it's parathesis. If I did'nt when I would compile it would'nt recognize page.setColor in Guest.java. But when I would compile my second program it says I can't apply the Graphics page to Colorcheck (). So I don't know what to do....
-Here is the following in this order:
Code for Guest.java (program to set up methods)
Code for Diner.java (program to envoke methods)
Compile error for Diner.java

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR TIME AND HELP

Brian,
It looks like you're not calling the method correctly. You defined the method as the following:
public int ColorCheck (Graphics page)
This means that when you call the ColorCheck method, you must pass it a Graphics object. Try changing the problematic line in Diner.java to say the following:
Webly.ColorCheck( page );
Also, are you sure that you want the Guest class to extend Applet? It looks like it should actually extend Object.
Hope this helps,
-Stu
