hey.. I am trying to build this switch statement but i keep getting this error

action is already defined in main(java.lang.String[])



I have tried different variable names but keep getting the same error.. can anyone help?
I know the code might look alittle rough as i am not done yet... but i'm just concerned with getting the switch working first... thanks.

You declared the action local variable twice (in the same method). Once at line 67. And the other at line 80.

hahaha geez... thank you don't i feel stupid.
If i wanted to have the switch statement set up so that i keep coming back to it how would i do that? A loop? I want to be able to choose the first action.. setSize and then return to the switch so that i may choose another option.. Is that simply a loop and if so where would I loop it?
