Hi. im kinda new here . i just want some help with this code i cant seem to figure out my problem, i already declared a constructor but it keeps on saying cannot find symbol when i compile it -_-

                }
            }
        }       
    }
}

it keeps on saying cannot find symbol on the line "thr[0] = new Thread1( tt , baseLength, aa, bb);", just 10 lines above this line.
it tells of symbol Sample_thread.Thread1(string......) sorry for the trouble but could you help me? please

Edited 3 Years Ago by Dani: Formatting fixed

public Thread1(String name, int len, String a[], String b[]) 
thr[0] = new Thread1( tt , baseLength, aa, bb);

A String cannot be converted to a String[] by method invocation conversion

Adding to what zeroliken said, your trying to parse arguments to a constructor that accepts a String and two String arrays: Thread1(String name, int len, String a[], String b[]). In your code you are parsing 3 strings and an integr which doesnt coincide with any of the constructors you have: thr[0] = new Thread1(tt, baseLength, aa, bb).

So maybe change it from an Array to a String or depending on if the array is needed then parse the entire array and not just a single String from the array.

Another problem i forsee is:

thr[tcount].sleep(1000);

This should be surrounded by a try catch statement for an InterruptedException/ or have a throw statement.

So maybe change it from an Array to a String or depending on if the array is needed then parse the entire array and not just a single String from the array. i.e: Thread1(tt, baseLength, sequence, sequence).

Another problem i for see is:

thr[tcount].sleep(1000);

This should be surrounded by a try catch statement for an InterruptedException/ or have a throw statement. also its not good practice to access Thread as a static rather use:

try {
                        Thread1.sleep(1000);
                    }catch(InterruptedException ie) { 
                    }
