    Welcome to the Forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code correctly and other useful tips for newcomers.

    The error message indicates that the variable, Text1 (which should be named 'text1' and given a more descriptive name), must be accessed from an object or instance of Text1's containing class. You can find out more about this error by searching the web as it is a typical hurdle for those starting Object Oriented Programming. You will also learn eventually that an object's fields should not be accessed directly but through interfaces known as 'getters' (accessors) or 'setters' (mutators).
