Hello;

My understanding in declaring an anonymous array is

new <datatype>[] = {"values seperated by comas"}

I've written a sample code like this :



It gives an error line 5 not a statement

Thanks in advance.

You can't just declare an array and do nothing with it. Unlike user defined classes, declaring an array doesn't have a noticeable side-effect. You need to actually use the array.

For example, to pass it into a method.
