Hi All,

How do I populate an ArrayList of Floats?
The below code gives me errors on compilation.





c:\code>javac LegalKeeperFish.java
LegalKeeperFish.java:7: cannot find symbol
symbol : method add(double)
location: class java.util.ArrayList<java.lang.Float>
___________ fishLengthList.add(10.0);
______________________^

Thanks

p.s. Is this the correct forum for a question like this?

Try declaring all your numbers like this:

fishLengthList.add(10.0f);


Putting an f after the number makes it a float, as opposed to a double.

Rob:

You've got your ArrayList set up correctly. The problem with your code is that floating point numbers default to doubles unless you mark them as floats. So, if you want Java to know you mean floats rather than doubles, you'll need to add an 'f' to the number, like this: 23.05f.
