I am still following the book and cannot compile this into a class because I am receiving a cannot find symbol error for Thread t = new Thread(this);


import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;

class GuiCore2 extends JComponent implements MouseMotionListener, ActionListener
{
String message;
int m_x = 125;
int m_y = 95;

JButton button;

int colorIndex;
static Color[] colors = {Color.black, Color.red, Color.blue, Color.green};
boolean blinkState;

public GuiCore2(String msg)
{
message = msg;
button = new JButton("Change Colors");
setLayout(new FlowLayout());
add(button);
button.addActionListener(this);
addMouseMotionListener(this);
Thread t = new Thread(this);
t.start();
}

public void paintComponent(Graphics g)
{
g.setColor(blinkState ? getBackground() : currentColor());
g.drawString(message, m_x, m_y);
}

public void mouseDragged(MouseEvent e)
{
m_x = e.getX();
m_y = e.getY();
}

public void mouseMoved(MouseEvent e)
{
}

public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
{
if(e.getSource() == button)
{
changeColor();
}
}

synchronized private void changeColor()
{
if(++colorIndex == colors.length)
{
colorIndex = 0;
}
setForeground(currentColor());
repaint();

}

synchronized private Color currentColor()
{
return colors[colorIndex];
}

public void run()
{
try
{
while(true)
{
blinkState = !blinkState;
repaint();
Thread.sleep(300);
}
}
catch(InterruptedException e)
{
}
}
}
