assignment problem

I am trying to set a min and a max to a value. I have:
String max;
String min;
max = '55';
min = '35';
I get a compilation error of 'invalid character constant'.
What could possibly be wrong here?

use double quotes.
String t="15";
String t2="25";
But if you will use further mathematical calcs, you should consider declaring these values int,long or double.
Hope helps,

yeah, just a small syntax error, of using single quotes '' instead of double quotes "" for Strings.
I take it you are writing a program that just outputs the min and max as Strings if a test of some kind goes wrong e.g.


How simple does it have to be???
I agree. Here's the link:
