i have this error: The constructor ImagePanel() is undefined. This is in the wondows app which is at the top of the page and i cnanot find it can somone please fix it. Thanks

here is the problem:

public ImagePanel(ArrayList<ImageInfo> photos){

this is the constructor you provide for your ImagePanel class.

this is the one you try to call:

window.getContentPane().add(new ImagePanel());

the compiler will automatically add a default (non argument) constructor, but only if you don't provide any constructors in your class yourself.

so, either you have to pass an ArrayList with elements of type <ImageInfo> or you'll have to add a default constructor in your ImagePanel class.

also: nice to note, you were looking in these Java 'scripts': pieces of code are called snippets. you don't "script" in Java, make sure you don't mix up the terminology of Java and JavaScript, that might make it harder for those trying to understand what you are trying to say.
