    Default Word Search Help


    cannot find symbol
    symbol : constructor PlaceWords(java.lang.String[],int,int)
    location: class PlaceWords
    PlaceWords pw = new PlaceWords(wordList,rows,cols);
    1 error

    Tool completed with exit code 1

    That's the error I'm getting when I compile my code. Does anyone know how to fix it? I'd greatly appreciate it.

    You are calling a constructor that does not exist. Either call one that does exist or write a new constructor to match the parameters you are trying to pass.
