Greetings all!  Can anyone tell me why my entry:   else if (e.getActionCommand.equals("Exit")) is causing the following compile error and/or suggest a fix:

C:\progs\TextAreaDemoExercise.java:67: cannot resolve symbol
symbol  : variable getActionCommand
location: class java.awt.event.ActionEvent
        else if (e.getActionCommand.equals("Exit"))
                  ^
Here a code excerpt (below)... I only have this problem when I try and put in the "exit" elements...remove them and it compiles fine.  


        Button get2Button = new Button("Get Memo 2");
        get2Button.addActionListener(this);
        buttonPanel.add(get2Button);

        Button ExitButton = new Button("Exit");                        //Button entry for my exit function....
        ExitButton.addActionListener(this);
        buttonPanel.add(ExitButton);

        add("South", buttonPanel);

        textPanel = new Panel();
        textPanel.setBackground(Color.blue);
        theText = new TextArea(10, 40);
        theText.setBackground(Color.white);
        textPanel.add(theText);
        add("Center", textPanel);
    }

    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
    {
        if (e.getActionCommand().equals("Save Memo 1"))
        {
            memo1 = theText.getText();
            theText.setText("Memo 1 saved.");
        }
        else if (e.getActionCommand().equals("Save Memo 2"))
        {
            memo2 = theText.getText();
            theText.setText("Memo 2 saved.");
         }
        else if (e.getActionCommand().equals("Clear"))
            theText.setText("");
        else if (e.getActionCommand().equals("Get Memo 1"))
            theText.setText(memo1);
        else if (e.getActionCommand().equals("Get Memo 2"))
            theText.setText(memo2);
        else if (e.getActionCommand.equals("Exit"))           //This is my entry to exit the program
   System.exit(0);                                                  
                                                                           
        else
            System.out.println("Error in memo interface.");

        textPanel.repaint();//Shows changes in textPanel
    }
