String name = console.readLine();


I'm getting an error when trying to run this code:

String name = console.readLine();

I can't see the error in here.


// I've imported java.io.Console for you.  It is stored in a variable called console for you.
String name = console.readLine();

Hi there, Bazilio De Oliveira! The readLine() method takes one argument. Namely, it takes the string you want to print to the user. In this case, we're expecting them to input a name so I might suggest something like console.readLine("Enter your name: ");

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Yes, it worked! Thank you, Jennifer! :)
