ok so i have to create an atm program. the program allows for input of a pin and then searches a raf in the first screen, it then moves onto a second menu where the option to withdrawal, check balance, or make a quick withdrawal comes up, and from there either goes to another screen and exits and so on, my problem is i can not figure out how to get the account number into my other classes and because java does not have global variable i can not figure it out, any help is appreciated, and for now my code looks bad but i was planning to clean it up when i was finished with it

thats my atm class which then calls

and that class is part of my problem i can not figure out how to get the account information from the first class into this class so that i can get the money info

any help is appreciated and thanks in advanced

You'll want to pass your variable into your options class. This can be done a couple of ways. I'm showing a simplified version that you can apply to your code:


Your Options class would need an overloaded constructor for the first example or a setter in the second example.

On a vaguely-related note, it's "withdrawal". "Withdrawl" is how we speak here on the ranch.
I agree. Here's the link:
