Pezdispenser?

Why is the PezDispenser class the same as the PezDispenser variable type in PezDispenser dispenser =new PezDispenser ();

Hey Adam and Daniel,

Grigorij does an excellent job of explaining it in this previous post

:dizzy:

Ok, thank you very much I must have missed that in the thread.

So it's not there to access the PezDispenser class? How does our example .class know we are using Yoda from the member variable? Thank you for the help.
