    Default BlackJack Help

    A player is dealt an initial hand of two cards. He has the option of drawing cards to bring the total
    value to 21 or less without exceeding it, so that the dealer will lose by having a lesser hand than
    the player or by exceeding 21. The dealer also receives an initial hand of two cards.

    However,
    only the first card is visible to all. The other card is not visible until the dealer's turn. The dealer
    starts his turn after every player stood (decided to take no more cards) or busted (value above
    21). A player hits when he decides to take another card from the dealer. A player busts when his
    hand value is above 21. When a player is busted, his chips is immediately forfeited regardless
    whether the dealer is busted or not. When a dealer is busted, the remaining players who are not
    busted wins. When there is a tie between the dealer and the player, the chips is returned to its
    player.


    Develop a Java program for the Blackjack card game. Do not implement additional options such as
    "double", "split" or "surrender".
    Required Functionality
     User registration of up to three players (A to C).
     Player's name must be at least three characters.
     Each player is to be given 100 chips at the beginning of the game.
     Dealer has unlimited amount of chips.
     Players cannot place chips of more than what they have.
     Each player or dealer has a hand of maximum five cards.
     Enforce turn-based dealing of cards to players.
     Display the value of a player's hand after a card is dealt.
     Allow players to stand or to hit.
     A player leaves the game when he has no more chips.
     The game ends when all players lose all their chips.

    Coding Restrictions
     You must use simple (1-D) arrays in this assignment.
     You are not allowed to use 2-D arrays, ArrayList and LinkedList as your data structures.
     You are not allowed to implement any form of GUI (E.g. Swing, AWT, etc.)

    This is what I have done so far

    My Card Class
    public class Card {
    public int suit; 
    public int number; 
     
    private final String[] Digit = {"A", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8", "9", "10", "J", "Q", "K"};
    private final String[] Symbol = {"Spade", "Heart", "Diamond", "Club"};
     
    public Card(int suit, int number){
    this.suit = suit;
    this.number = number; 
    }
    public int getScore(){
    return number;
    }
    public int getTitle(){
    return suit;
    }
    public void display(){
    String value = Digit[number];
    String shape = Symbol[suit];
    System.out.println(shape + " " + value);
     
     
    }
    }

    My Deck Class

    public class Deck {
    public Deck[] Card = new Deck[52];
    public int cardsDispensed;
     
    public Deck(){
     
    }
    public Card dispenseCard() {
     
    }
     
    public void createDeck(){
     
    }
     
    public void shuffleDeck(){
     
    }
    }
    There is a red line beneath the dispenseCard() . I do not know what is wrong with it.

    I have not work on my BlackJack and Player class. Anyone knows how to help?? Thanks alot man

    There is a red line
    Can you compile the program and get some error messages from the compiler? If so, copy and paste them here if you do not understand them and need help.
    Otherwise read the doc for your IDE to see how you can have it tell you why it is drawing a red line.
