Hello all

After beating my head on this for all morning, I appeal to the community for some help.

First the code in question, I have a setup that creates a new screen, and calls a class to show a new string every second, like so:

As you can see, it takes the literal String in mainScreen.appendLabelText, and sends it to this function in the file that called MainScreenUpdaterThread.

However, I would like to use the number contained in the variable i in the for loop, instead of a literal string. However, when I do so, I get the following error at the i variable in the mainScreen.appendLabelText():

Cannot refer to a non-final variable i inside an inner class defined in a different method

I've tried casting the integer in i to String with no success, and an array to the same thing. Is there just soemthing silly that I've missed here that could be affecting it?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
