hey everyone. So i'm working on my own version of mineSweeper. My professor's explanation, even after several times asking, doesn't seem to quite click with me. In the following code, I have to implement the MineSweeper constructor and my needed instance variable in it. So I've been told the constructor is taking an array of GameSquare objects. My question is: how do I initialize the information within each object if the GameSquare class if Private? Then, how do I call this array later in order to set the my other methods such as isFlagged, click, and so on? Just need a push in the right direction and some clarity, I'm quite confused. Thanks!!! Oh, this method is being implemented in such a way so that I can do some unit testing. There is another constructor using a random number generator but I believe the point of this one is testing.


as you can see I started but have no idea what i''m doing.
-Thank you ahead of time.

I found that I had to instantiate all the variables in the private class. Took me a while to figure out!!!
