11. Using Methods: II - I get an error but the code is correct


#1

class Dog{

int age;

public Dog(int dogsAge) {

age = dogsAge;

}

public void bark() {

System.out.println("Woof!");

}

public void run(int feet) {

System.out.println("Your dog ran " + feet + " feet!");

}
public void getAge(){
return age;
}

public static void main(String[] args) {

Dog spike = new Dog(7);
spike.bark();
spike.run(20);

}

}
This is my. I get error at the second instruction when I have to write "return age;" .. What's the problem?


#2

Hi, @fosterman ,

The following function is defined as being void, meaning it does not return anything, but then it returns an int ...

public void getAge(){
  return age;
}

It should be ...

public int getAge() {

#3

I'm having the same problem. I tried public int getAge( ) but that still does not seem to fix anything, it still says error.


#4

If you could include a screen shot to show us what you are seeing, that will be helpful.


#5

5 hour ago i had the same problem, later i used public int getAge(){} and works, later i restart all the java course, an d the same problem and dont work int getAge() i think it is a bug


#6

yea thanks, it worked, but the problem is that the instruction told me to write it as void :smile:


#7

It does in Step 1, but then in Step 2 it says:

Modify the method so that it returns an int.

That is telling you to change void to int.


#8

doesnt work
I have code
public void run(int feet) {

System.out.println("Your dog ran " + feet + " feet!");

}

public void getAge() {

//return age;

}

public static void main(String[] args) {

Dog spike = new Dog(7);
spike.bark();
spike.run(20);

spike.getAge();

answer is
Did you add the getAge method? Make sure to place it between the run and main methods.


#9

Im having the same problem as these guys, this code is throwing an error cant figure out why

class Dog{

int age;

public Dog(int dogsAge) {

age = dogsAge;

}

public void bark() {

System.out.println("Woof!");

}

public int getrun(int feet) {
System.out.println("Your dog ran " + feet + "feet!");

}

public static void main(String[] args) {

Dog spike = new Dog(7);
spike.bark();
spike.ran(20);

}

}


#10

im also having problems on this one and i noticed the change from void to int straight away unless you mean to change the main method to int which i dont think the question suggests, anyway after much banging my head against a brick wall and wearing out my f5 button i got this code to work

class Dog{
int age;

public Dog(int dogsAge)
{
age = dogsAge;
}
public void bark(){
System.out.println("Woof!");
}
public void run(int feet){
System.out.println("Your dog ran " + feet + " feet!");
}
public int getAge(){
return age;
}

public static void main(String[] args) {

Dog spike = new Dog(5);
spike.bark();
spike.run(2000);
int spikeAge = spike.getAge();
}

}

but not everytime?????


#11

I made last code and result is same..not working..Actually i tried several times several different codes and ...nothing


#12

The exercise is expecting a method called run that is void.

Do you see the differences in your method and the expected one?


#13

Hi @bitninja23259, if you post your code and error message, someone can have a look.


#14

I see difference but thsi method works.
Ssytem tells that I dont have getAge method ..but I have it in program....


#15

even after help get the code it doesnt work...


#16

I am having same problems...even after GET CODE ...it is not properly fetched..I am unable to move for next assignment.


#17

Not working, Anyone see the mistake?


#18

It's trying to tell you that it is surprised that you don't have any more code after line 20.

Things are a bit cramped there, but it looks like you are missing a } -- the one that matches this one:

class Dog {

#19

solve my problem please :cry:


#20

That was it, thanks Albion.

@official_mria I think you have the same problem as me. Add another } at the end.
