Hi,

I am writing a program for an assignment, and I have almost all of it working, but I just don't understand why the following code doesn't work, the error I get is:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException: Index: 0, Size: 0
at java.util.ArrayList.RangeCheck(Unknown Source)
at java.util.ArrayList.set(Unknown Source)
at NodeArray.loadGame(NodeArray.java:91)
at Test.main(Test.java:31)




It gives me the error when I try to run the program in the main class, at the line: "super.set(0, nodes[0]);" in the loadGame() method. Any hel pwould be appreciated!

From the javadoc for ArrayList.set method

Replaces the element at the specified position in this list with the specified element.


You don't have any elements in your ArrayList to start with, so you can't replace one. You need to add some elements to the ArrayList before you can use the set method.
 
You’ll find me in my office. I’ll probably be drinking. And reading this tiny ad.
