Java Java Objects (Retired) Creating the MVP Storing Guesses

I still get java.until.NoSuchElementException even after I put return isHit in the correct place. What is wrong?

public class Game { private String mAnswer; private String mHits; private String mMisses;

public Game(String answer) { mAnswer = answer; mhits = ""; mMisses = ""; }

public boolean applyGuess(char letter) { boolean isHit = mAnswer.indexOf(letter) >= 0; if (isHit) { mHits += letter;
} else { mMisses += letter; } return isHit; } }

Hi Yasir,

In your Game constructor, you initialize "mhits" instead of "mHits". Simple mistake that's easy to miss. I hope that fixes it for you. If not, let me know.

Can you fix your mhits. You have them capitalized wrong.

You return return isHit;

But you have mhits

If you fix that does it still throw the same error?

Thank you both, can't believe I made a silly mistake like that Jon Kussmann Ryan Ruscett
