       public Hashnain(){
          super("The title");
          setLayout(new FlowLayout());
          //Create the menu bar.
          menuBar = new JMenuBar();
          //Build the first menu.
          menu = new JMenu("Guide");
          menuItem1 = new JMenuItem("Help");
          menuItem2 = new JMenuItem("About");
          menuItem3 = new JMenuItem("Exit");
          imo1=new Image();
          en4 = new Encode();
         imo = new JButton("Select image file");
         enco = new JButton("Encode");
       private class Image implements ActionListener
    		 *handles the click event
    		 *@param e The ActionEvent Object
    		public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
    	//show the decode view
    			JFileChooser chooser = new JFileChooser();
    			chooser.setFileFilter(new Filt());
    			int returnVal = chooser.showOpenDialog(imo);
    			if (returnVal == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION){
    				File directory = chooser.getSelectedFile();
    					String image = directory.getPath();

    				//msg if opening fails
    				JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(imo, "The File cannot be opened!", 
    					"Error!", JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE);
       private class Encode implements ActionListener{
          public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent eq)
            	 JFileChooser chooser = new JFileChooser();
     			chooser.setFileFilter(new Filt());
    Main class:

    Default Re: Getting error as "cannot be resolved to a type"

    Make sure the Encode class is in scope where you are trying to reference it.
    The formtting of the code makes it hard to read and understand. The {}s are not properly placed.
    Could be a tabs vs spaces being used to control indentations issue.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
