Help needed with Game script

These are the resulting errors

Scripts\Sources\ error: no suitable method found for setVisible()
method JComponent.setVisible(boolean) is not applicable
(actual and formal argument lists differ in length)
Scripts\Sources\ error: cannot find symbol
symbol: method walkPathMM(RSTile[])
location: variable walking of type Walking
Scripts\Sources\ error: cannot find symbol
int spikePrice = grandExchange.lookup(spikeID).getMarketPrice();
symbol: method getMarketPrice()
location: class GEItem
Scripts\Sources\ error: reference to getItem is ambiguous, both method getItem(int...) in Inventory and method getItem(String...) in Inventory match

Can somebody tell me how to fix this? I feel as though this should be a simple fix.

In case it isn't painfully obvious, I'm really new to this. I found this script posted publicly, so I thought I'd try my hand at it.

The code is kind of long for a forum, where people expect the user to present a short, clear example of a question, and difficult to read because of the lack of indentions. It's no wonder you haven't gotten any help yet.

Do you know how to read the error messages? Your first says that on line 106, the method gui.setVisible() could not be found.

Since gui is a "TrepForm" we have to look there to see if the method has been created with this name and "signature"(refers to the arguments or lack thereof). Indeed, there are no such methods, but JPanel (the Object that is extended by TrepForm) does have setVisible(boolean), albeit by itself extending JComponent. So, I'm guessing probably you need to add a boolean as an argument. Java considers setVisible() and setVisible(boolean) to be two distinct methods.

If you continue to have trouble figuring out the other error messages, you will have a better chance of getting help if you try to isolate a smaller example that illustrates the question, and present that.
I agree. Here's the link:
