Hi. Does anyone know why this code does not work? Thanks for any help. AppletText.java:14: cannot resolve symbol symbol : method SetColor (java.awt.Color) location: class java.awt.Graphics g.SetColor(Color.blue); ^ AppletText.java:15: cannot resolve symbol symbol : method SetFont (java.awt.Font) location: class java.awt.Graphics g.SetFont(new Font("Verdana", Font.BOLD, 12)); ^
Thanks again, Jon

Silly me! I needed to change "SetColor" to "setColor" -- what a noob! :roll:
Welcome to JavaRanch, Jon! I'm glad we could help by being your Cardboard Analyst. As a good beginner tip that helped me out a lot, if you weren't already familiar with it, let me introduce you to the J2SE API documentation. It does a great job of documenting and describing almost all of the classes (and their methods) available in the J2SE API. It's a very nice resource for doing things like looking up what methods are available to a Graphics type object, including the names of methods, what parameters they take, what might get returned, what various methods do, etc. Good luck and I hope to see you 'round the Ranch!
