Compiling error? But I have created a public method that returns my private variable.

I followed step by step on creating a public method to expose my private variable. Now in my Example.java I called it with the proper name and syntax but I still get an error?

How do I add a screenshot to this discussion?

If you are using a workspace you can create a snapshot by clicking the camera icon in the upper right corner. This will generate a link that you can post here. Others can then work with a copy of your workspace.

Omar Jimenez :

If you can't share the code, you can copy and paste it, and use the Markdown Cheatsheet to style your code.

Most likely though, you either have a capitalization issue, or forgot some characters somewhere.
