    Question Well i got some kind of problem here?

    So i was practesing with Scanner and delay...
    This happened and i dont know whats wrong?
    It has something to do with delay but i cant figure it out?
    import java.util.Scanner;
     
    public class ReactionGame {
     
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    		Scanner NewScanner = new Scanner(System.in);
    		System.out.println("Type K and press enter when STOP appears");
    		Delay(1000);
                    System.out.println("STOP");
    		String s = NewScanner.nextLine();
    		System.out.println("You can do better!");
    	}
    }

    I dont know why the "Delay(1000)" doesnt work?!?!?

    heres the error response.

    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.Error: Unresolved compilation problem:
    The method Delay(int) is undefined for the type ReactionGame

    at ReactionGame.main(ReactionGame.java:8)

    Hope someone can figure this "Easy" Thing out!

    Have fun coding!

    Greetings,
    Niels

    The method Delay(int) is undefined for the type ReactionGame
    The compiler can not find a definition for the method Delay().
    Where is that method defined?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Ehh I honestly dont know how to get a method... i just make alot of simple games... If you could explain me how I use a "Method" because I dont know.

    EDIT: I got the Delay(int) from the internet thinking it would work. I could use a tutorial if you want to give me that,

    Take a look at the tutorial:
    Defining Methods (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Classes and Objects)
    Passing Information to a Method or a Constructor (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Classes and Objects)

    Basically methods need to be defined before they can be called.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
