Hi all,

If mySB is a stringbuffer, what is wrong with the following declaration? Error messages are:
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner.Mynotebook\Ch5ItIs\src\ch5itis\Chapter7Strings.java:29: <identifier> expected
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "The user ID is " + mySB);
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner.Mynotebook\Ch5ItIs\src\ch5itis\Chapter7Strings.java:29: illegal start of type
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "The user ID is " + mySB);
2 errors

It's not a declaration -- it's a method call. Nothing is wrong that that line of code, but it needs to be inside the body of a method.

It was inside valid code, but when I closed NetBeans and reopened, it compiled and ran just fine. Strange.
