    The jvm could not find a definition for the MyCard class on the classpath when it tried to execute the statement at line 113.

    Where is the definition for the MyCard class? Is the MyCard.class file in a folder on the classpath?

    This appeared when I tried to call the method MyCard by typing MyCard gui = new MyCard(); into the main, I am following school notes.

    You need to provide the java program with a MyCard.class file with the definition of the MyCard class to be able to execute the code.

    Where is the definition of the class: MyCard that was used when you compiled the program?

    Sorry I have no idea what that image's contents means.
    It's mostly unreadable.

    If you are having troubles with your IDE, try asking about it in the IDE section:

    EDIT: The trouble I was talking about was setting the IDE's classpath so the java program could find the class definition.

    Sorry, I don't know how to read what your IDE shows.

    If there are error messages, copy them and paste them here.
