    Yes. The String to accept is passed in the constructor, not hard coded in the method.

    Is that the same error as in post#172
    What did you do to fix that error? If you don't fix the errors they don't go away and you are wasting time trying to continue if you don't fix the errors.

    Did you fix the error shown in posts#172 and 178?

    Those two Strings: string1 and string2 are supposed to be deleted, not moved around.

    I said: The String to accept is passed in the constructor
    There is nothing there about moving TWO Strings.

    This is getting to be a big waste of time. I'm getting tired of repeating myself. If you'll look back through the posts on this thread, this topic has been covered several times.

    That statement shows how little you know about coding java.

    There is no way you can hope to finish this project with your current java knowledge. I'm not sure that you are currently capable of learning to code a java program.
    It could be that your English isn't good enough. Certainly your knowledge of java programming terms needs work.

    If you'd work on smaller projects like what I suggested in post#161 maybe then ....
