Welcome to the Ranch

Please don’t add a new question to an old thread; I have created a new thread. Please copy-and-paste code; screenshots are much more difficult to read.

The error is quite straightforward: Insert another "}" to complete class body.
You have to have brackets in pairs - if there is "{" you'll need "}" as-well to end the block.

The bracket you have in the end will pair up with the main "{". Insert another one to pair up with the class "{".

I think the original poster worked it out, but I didn’t copy the whole thread over correctly. Sorry.

I recommend learning to write code differently from a letter. I am surprised there wasn’t a warning before attempted compiling, and that the IDE didn’t insert the {} correctly paired automatically. I would also recommend you don’t use an IDE if you are still at the beginner’s stage.
I agree. Here's the link:
