Help me in my statistics class! Click this link to take a survey. It is only two questions and will take at most 2 minutes! Thank you in advance!

Did not forget, just do not know how to. Any tips on that?

I have this code:

and my theOutput(); method in my main says Non-Static method cannot be referenced from a static context. Is there any way to get around this or fix this error?

If you choose to look at it that way, then yes!

I have to make a final project for my Java class but I am not sure what I should do. I am allowed to do anything I want as long as it includes at least 4 of the following:
-File I/O
-Using several methods of the Java "String" class, such as substr, charAt, length (see Chapter 7 for examples)
-Create your own java class (defining an object)
-Create your program as an applet

Does anyone have any ideas as to what I could do?

Carey Brown wrote:You already have an order, you named it "computer", what you don't have is "extras". You if() statements bail out as soon as one is true so your requirement "any of the buttons selected" is not being met. You shouldn't return until the end of the method.

How would I make it so every button will add that value to computer? I can't simple remove the return.

So I have these two methods that are for a Java Swing project. The first method is supposed to calculate the cost of a computer plus any of the buttons selected in the GUI. My problem is how do I create the variable so that I can add each button to total up on the order?

I assume you meant "call from main()" -- my question would be, was this code provided to you like this? If so, then you'd need an instance of the class that this method is found in. Otherwise, you'd make it a static method as already discussed.

If I make that method static, and call it from main like this:
I get a compiler error:

How would I make the variables static?

Because there are other methods in the program that do things with multiple cards.

Couldn't I just change the "parseCard" method to static?

And to call that method from main method, you have to create an object of the class where you have written that method as the method is non-static method and you are calling it from the static context as main method is static. And then call that method from that object reference and as your method is returning Cards object you have to assign the result the Cards.

Could you rephrase this? I am a bit confused on it. I somewhat understand it but I need to reread it worded differently.

I am given this method called parseCard and it takes a String and returns the corresponding card.
This is the method:

My question is how do I call this method to main?

Never mind I found my problem and figured out how to use it with an idea from Campbell Ritchie.

Oh I see what you mean, but When I put that code in my main, what is supposed to replace the portion of it? Is that where my class name goes?

I am not sure how to make this that I was given to take an array of 10 random integers.
