Java Java Objects (Retired) Harnessing the Power of Objects Incrementing

Please help me. I have been stuck on this question for over an hour.

It's in Java Objects. I'm trying to make the charge method work with Fully Charged to allow it to charge until it reaches full.

public boolean isFullyCharged() { return mBarsCount == MAX_ENERGY_BARS; } public void charge(isFullyCharged) { while (!mBarsCount == MAX_ENERGY_BARS); { mBarsCount +=1; }

Russell, you need to refactor the charge() method (and only that method). Something along these lines:

  public void charge() {
    while (!isFullyCharged()) {
      mBarsCount++;
    }
  }

Your code worked. I just thought you should know. Thanks man.

Russell, good of you. But I don't suggest anything without testing it first. The challenge editors are usually very picky, and sometimes code that works in my IDE isn't "acceptable" to an editor. So I've learned that I have to try the code in the challenge itself before urging it on others!
