        } // end method main()
     
    }

    why m i getting ann error"cannot find symbol TicTGui " where i am creating constructor that accepts a TicTGui object
    as well as in my switch statements " ticTGui.setButton1Text( "X" ); "
    "ticTGui.setButton1Enabled( false );"

    Default Re: cannot find symbol

    With the 'this' keyword, the constructor indicates that an instance variable, ticTGui, exists, but the error is telling you that it can't find that ticTGui was declared. All you have to do is declare it as you've done your other instance variables, "letter", "count", etc.:

    private TicTGui ticTGui;
