    Default Return randomized String to other class in project

    Hi, I want to return a randomized string from Class2 to Class1 (the classes are in same "Project". How do I do to make the returned String relevant in Class1?

    CLASS 1
    public class p12NameGen
    {
     
        public static void main(String[] args) {
     
            //I want the randomized String from class 2 to be here
     
        }
     
    }//class end

    CLASS2
    import java.util.Random;
     
     
    public class p12NamnLista
    {
     
     Random slumpNamn = new Random();
     String[] p12namn ={"Coolboy_97"};
     
     
     
        public String getp12Namn()
        {
            int namn = slumpNamn.nextInt(p12namn.length);
            return p12namn[namn];
     
        }
     
    }// class end

    Excuse the sweinglish in the code

    See Classes and Objects for a thorough description on how to use classes and objects. This should hopefully answer your question, if not let us know if there is still confusion

    Ok yes thanks a lot , it helped me understand a bit about classes. Then I looked on the code of a almost similar program we wrote in school and did it like this.


    CLASS 1
    public class p12NameGen
    {
     
     
     
        public static void main(String[] args)
        {
     
           p12NamnLista randomp12Namn = new p12NamnLista();
           System.out.println(randomp12Namn.toString());
     
     
        }
     
    }//class end


    CLASS 2
    public class p12NamnLista
    {
     
      String[] p12namn ={"Coolboy_97", "Niklas_Paladin"};
     
      int namnet = (int) (p12namn.length*Math.random());
     
      private String namn = p12namn[namnet];
     
        public String getNamn() {
            return namn;
        }
     
        public void setNamn(String namn) {
            this.namn = namn;
        }
     
        @Override
        public String toString()
        {
            String slumpatNamn = this.namn;
            return slumpatNamn;
        }
     
     
     
    }// class end

    Works fine
