    Default Accessing array of method

    Hi.
    I was wondering how do I access whole bunch of array of method.
    tom is an array of object.
    Student[] tom = new Student[10];
     
    for(int i = 0; i < 10; i++){
    	tom[i] = new Student();
    }

    tom[].accessMethod(); //Not working

    Error Message: class expected and ; expected .What to do?

    Which element is tom[]?

    compare to tom[i] = new Student() where tom[i] = the ith element in tom

    I mean. I want to pass the entire array into the method. Is it possible? Like : tom[1 to 100] array <--I know it's wrong but it's for illustrate purpose only.

    You're asking a couple different things.

    Do you want to pass the entire array into a method? Then you just pass the tom variable like you'd pass any other variable.

    Do you want to access a method of each instance of Student in your tom array? If so, iterate over the list an access it like so:

    someArray[someIndex].someMethod();
