  1. NetBeans and Java Help

    Ok, so looking at your example, I see the error. The tutorial page linked Point and Rectangle which are apparently separate objects. The tutorial page doesn't include all the code at once, I overlooked the first time. Your link has all of it at once, I will try it that way. Thanks for the reply and help, it is much appreciated.
  2. NetBeans and Java Help

    Hey all, looking for some help:D I decided to teach myself how to program. I am running Ubuntu 12.04 on a dual core laptop, 3GB Ram. I went with Python for a couple of days, and after some more reading, decided to swap over to Java, since when I finally get around to making a game, I would want it cross platform easily? Anyway, so I have been working throught the Java tutorial trail, using NetBeans IDE, and honestly, some of the stuff just doesnt work. Is this typical with Java? I type the code out line for line on the CreatObjectsDemo, public static void main(String[] args) { // Declare and create a point object // and two rectangle objects. Point originOne = new Point(23, 94); Rectangle rectOne = new Rectangle(originOne, 100, 200); Rectangle rectTwo = new Rectangle(50, 100); and it compiles errors like these Compiling 1 source file to /home/skull/NetBeansProjects/CreatObjectDemo/build/classes /home/skull/NetBeansProjects/CreatObjectDemo/src/creatobjectdemo/CreatObjectDemo.java:19:[color=#ff0000] cannot find symbol symbol : class Point[/color] location: class creatobjectdemo.CreatObjectDemo Point originOne = new Point(23, 94); /home/skull/NetBeansProjects/CreatObjectDemo/src/creatobjectdemo/CreatObjectDemo.java:19: [color=#ff0000]cannot find symbol symbol : class Point[/color] location: class creatobjectdemo.CreatObjectDemo Point originOne = new Point(23, 94); /home/skull/NetBeansProjects/CreatObjectDemo/src/creatobjectdemo/CreatObjectDemo.java:20: [color=#ff0000]cannot find symbol symbol : class Rectangle[/color] It is using the JDK 1.6 library, am currently having issues getting it to add platform 1.7 would the library be the cause of this issue? Any thanks will be greatly appreciated *edit* there are indents in the code, copy and paste is right on preview, shows no indents on submittal? *meh*
