    Default <identifier> expected

    So I am doing some questions for my programming class using blueJ and I am not very good

    But on the question we have to complete a code but I have started abit and got:

    public class Screen
    {
    private int xRes;
    private int yRes;

    public Screen(int xRes, yRes)
    {
    .....
    }
    public int numberOfPixels()
    { // product of xRes and yRes
    .....
    }
    public void clear(boolean invert) {
    .....
    }
    }

    But when I try to compile it says '<identifier> expected'
    and I am not sure what it means

    any help?

    Default Re: <identifier> expected

    public Screen(int xRes, yRes)

    needs to be:

    public Screen(int xRes, int YRes)

    Why are you declaring these global variables as private int above?
    They are in a different scope than the parameter variables and are not the same.
