    Post Timer.schedule

    timer.schedule isn't working for me when I use your block of code in my main method, it seems I can never get java's timer function working for me. I have been trying all afternoon, outside of a main method when I
    say "Timer timer = new Timer();" it says its correct but now inside the main method it lets me do what I wanted earlier but now what I want now which is "Timer('printer'); "
    This would all be fine if my timer.schedule would work but no
    "The method schedule(MyTask, int, int) is undefined for the type Timer" and a quick fix option is
    add cast to 'timer'.

    Default Re: Timer.schedule

    Welcome to the forums. I have moved your post to a more appropriate section, as posting to an old tutorial will not give your question much visibility. I would recommend posting code and any error messages to provide your post context.
