Hi,

Not sure what the problem is with my main method, need to do this in a JFrame.

import javax.swing.JButton;
import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.JLabel;
import javax.swing.JPanel;

import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;


public class WatchMe extends JFrame

private int firstEyeX = 30;
private int firstEyeY = 40;
private int secondEyeX = 90;
private int secondEyeY = 40;
private int firstPupilX = firstEyeX + 10;
private int firstPupilY = firstEyeY + 20;
private int secondPupilX = secondEyeX + 10;
private int secondPupilY = secondEyeY + 20;
final double proportion = 0.25;
 
public WatchMe()
  {
	 
	setTitle("Colors");
	setSize(WINDOW_WIDTH, WINDOW_HEIGHT);
	
	setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);

  	
    
    addMouseListener(new MyMouseListener());
    
    addMouseMotionListener(new MyMouseMotionListener());
    add(panel);
    setVisible(true);
  }

  
  public void paint(Graphics g)

  }
  
  
  private class MyMouseListener extends MouseAdapter

      secondPupilX = secondPupilX + secondEyeX - 20;
      secondPupilY = (int) (eyeProportionY);
      secondPupilY = secondPupilY + secondEyeY;
      
      if(firstPupilX < 30)
      {

Your main method should be:

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        WatchMe mainFrame = new WatchMe();
        mainFrame.setVisible(true);
    }

Open in new window


and to not have a NullPointerException you should

1) Or remove this line

      add(panel);

Open in new window


2) or initialize panel before adding it:

      panel = new JPanel();
      add(panel);

Open in new window

I copy/pasted your code and I don't have any error. It just runs (I see "the eyes" appear)
So, I don't know what you mean.

I guess you have the error with other/changed code

Some things to try...

Ensure that the source files are actually saved in your IDE (I know my Eclipse sometimes loses the plot and stops auto-saving them when I run my code)
Try "cleaning" your project. If you are using Eclipse, go to the "Project" menu and then "Clean...", select your project and go. Also, check that either you have "Build Automatically" checked (in the same "Project" menu) or if you aren't building automatically, ensure that you have actually built your project before running it.

Sorry, when I run that code I don't have any errors. Not your's and no others.
Try to create a new file WatchMe2.java and change all "WatchMe" occurrences to "WatchMe2" if mccarl's post doesn't help you.
