What is the wrong in my code

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.v4.widget.SwipeRefreshLayout;
import android.support.v4.widget.SwipeRefreshLayout.OnRefreshListener;

public class MainActivity extends ListActivity {
public SwipeRefreshLayout mRefreshLayout = (SwipeRefreshLayout)findViewById(R.id.refreshLayout) 
     /* Some code has been omitted for brevity

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

public OnRefreshListener mOnRefreshListener = new OnRefreshListener() {
        public void onRefresh() {
            // Code that refreshes the content in the layout...

There is no closing ; after declaring mRefreshLayout :)

Should be

public SwipeRefreshLayout mRefreshLayout = (SwipeRefreshLayout)findViewById(R.id.refreshLayout);

Though if there is some specific error please do let us know. Hope that helps
