    Default Error for a simple array

    I'm trying to create an array that holds 4 values. Declaring the array seems like its not a problem but initialising it keeps giving me this weird syntax error that its expecting "," on token ";", not sure what that means or what its problem is, can anyone help?
    Heres part of the code:

    	JMenuBar menuBar ;
    	JMenu menuSession ;
    	JMenuItem subNewGame, subLoadGame ;
    	MyComponent graphArea ;
    	Color one = Color.blue ;
    	Color two = Color.blue ;
    	Color three = Color.blue ;
    	Color four = Color.blue ;
    	int firstx[]={275,325,325,275} ;
    	int firsty[]={100,100,175,175} ;
    	int secondx[]={150,450,450,150} ;
    	int secondy[]={180,180,230,230} ;
    	int thirdx[]={255,292,180,143} ;
    	int thirdy[]={263,300,412,375} ;
    	int fourthx[]={345,308,420,457} ;
    	int fourthy[]={263,300,412,375} ;
    	int[] strokePos ;
    	strokePos = new int[4] ;
    	Polygon firstStroke = new Polygon(firstx,firsty,4) ;
    	Polygon secondStroke = new Polygon(secondx,secondy,4) ;
    	Polygon thirdStroke = new Polygon(thirdx,thirdy,4) ;
    	Polygon fourthStroke = new Polygon(fourthx,fourthy,4) ;
    	int s1, s2, s3, s4 ;

    The error happens on this line: int[] strokePos ;

    Default Re: Error for a simple array

    Ok for some reason initialising it when declaring "int[] strokePos = new int[4] ;" doesn't bring up the error... that doesn't make much sense to me, its like the same thing right? Even though I don't have the error anymore, if anyone could tell me what they think the problem could have been I'd be grateful, I'd like to prevent further mistakes like this as much as possible.

    Default Re: Error for a simple array

    I apologize for this but the error returns when I try to put the value 1 at the first position and I'm getting another error just below that saying I need a semi-colon to complete a statement, but I don't believe I do... Please can someone help me? I will post my code if necessary.

    He attempted to initialize a field (strokePos = new int[4] ; ) outside a declaration/method/block :p
