sorry about that the errors are the if and else statements.

it says cannot find symbol
the symbols are th ones in the if statement bracket
illegal start
even calls the class out from sysytem.out.print as a symbol it cannot find
<identifier> expected
')' expected and it says the first else does not have an if statement

Where did those error messages come from?

Please copy and paste the full text of the error messages from the compiler.

BUILD FAILED (total time: 0 seconds)

Is this a compile time problem or an execution time problem?
The error message you posted looks like execution time:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: Uncompilable source code

You don't get exceptions when compiling a source

The code you posted only shows 139 lines, but the error message refers to line 169

Are you working with a different program than what was posted?

Ok now I see the compile time errors.

if (Cut Flowers)

The expression in the ()s must evaluate to a boolean value: true or false.
"Cut Flowers" is not a boolean expression.

The other errors may be due to mismatched ()s or {}s
You need to post the sourcecode that generates the errors.

the code with the errors

String floralOption[] ={ "Cut Flowers = $15.00","Floral Arrangemen = $25.00","Coursages = 10.00","None"};
                if {Cut Flowers}
                    System.out.print("Submit = $15.00");
                else
                    if (floralArrangement)
                        System.out.print("Submit = $25.00");
                    else
                        if (Coursage)
                            System.out.print("$10.00");
                        else
                            System.out.print("None");

                String dominantFlower[] = { "Roses = $5.00", "Daisies", "Chrysanthemums", "Irises"};

                if (roses)
                    System.out.print("$15.00" + "$5.00" );("$25.00" + "$5.00");("$10.00" + "$5.00");
                else
                    System.out.print("$15.00"); ("$25.00"); ("$10.00");


                String dOption[]= { "Drop Off = $10.00", "Pick Up"};

                if (Drop Off)
                    System.out.print("$10.00");
                else
                    ystem.out.print("PickUp");
            }

        }
if {Cut Flowers}

What is this statement supposed to do? Its syntax is invalid.
Are you trying to determine if a variable(a String) has the contents of "Cut Flowers"?

it suppose to mean if the individual chooses cut flowers then it will cost $15.00 and so on.

You are running ahead. There is nothing I posted about cost or $15. That comes later.

I am asking what the single statement I posted is supposed to do?
if() statements require binary expressions in the (). Cut Flowers is not a boolean expression, so the compiler gives an error message.
What condition do you want to test here? What boolean expression represents that test?

if choice is to cut flowers

Ok, that's in English.
Now write it in Java:
What is a "choice"?
How do you test the "choice" to see if it is "cut flowers"?

What does the compiler say? That's the quickest way to get error messages for a line of code.

cut flowers looks like two variables: cut and flowers. What is the compile supposed to do with them? Add them together? Subtract one from the other?

If you want a String then you need to add " to both ends: "cut flowers".

To compare the contents of two objects, use a method, do NOT USE the == operator.
To find what method to use, read the API doc for the classes involved.

Edited 6 Years Ago by NormR1: n/a

now choice is underlined as an error but getting problems to build with netbeams

6.8 getting the sames errors that i had before even though in the code the errors

decreased how can this be fixed to see the current error info.

Please copy full text of error message and paste it here. Here is a sample:

TestSorts.java:138: cannot find symbol
symbol : variable var
location: class TestSorts
var = 2;
