What does "/*public" match up with?
Please post errors.
Normally if you have the other class in the same directory and compile all the files in that directory - java is able to find methods in other classes. (Assuming that the methods are "public" and stuff like that.)


Please ignore post, I have no idea what I am talking about.

You don't have an object associated with the method being called so the ompiler is looking for the isCurrent method in the class it is called from. If the isCurrent method is defined in another class you need an instance of that class to call it on. Like this:
otherClassInstance.isCurrent()
hope that helps
