Hi everyone, this is my first post as I'm new here...
I can't seem to get this to compile, can someone tell why it's not compiling... I'm nearly 100% sure it's not a syntax error... please help

Java Classes have constructors.
These are used to initialize the object.
You have used a method ,"public void question_1()",
please change this to public Chapter7(){//initialize }don't
change the code inside the method question_1.

It will help you can give us a bit more information.
First of ally, you can preserve the indentation in your code by using [ code ] tags. There is a button below the reply message box that will add them automatically to your message. Just copy and paste the code in between the tags.
More importantly, we need the error messages you get when you compile. Please copy and paste them here. Also, make a note about which line each error refers to. Comments in the code can help with this.
I'll be more than happy to help you solve the compiler errors after you post them here.
Keep coding!

You have a scope problem.
Move this line
JButton btnHello1 = new JButton ("Button 1"),btnHello2 = new JButton ("Button 2");
to immediately above this line
public void question_1(){
and it should compile OK.
I agree. Here's the link:
