Thank you for quick reply,

here's the error

Well, it's true. The String class doesn't have a static getText() method.

However I have no idea what you meant to use that nonexistent getText() method for, so I can't make any suggestions about what you should replace it by. Could you explain what it was supposed to do?

This line is wrong:

You are trying to call the method getText on the String class. But class String does not have such a method. You probably meant this:
