    Default Collections, Collection From one class to another

    Hi, im trying to get a collection from one class Department to another Class DeptChooser, so i can put it into an array into a JList and then display it i can get it into a Jlist and display but can't get from Department class into DeptChooser.

    here is my bit of code that i thought would work.

    [code]
    collection.toArray(Department[]);
    JList deptList = new JList(dept);
    deptList.setSelectionMode(ListSelectionModel.SINGL E_SELECTION);
    panel.add(deptList, DeptPanel);
    JScrollPane deptListscroll = new JScrollPane(deptList, JScrollPane.VERTICAL_SCROLLBAR_AS_NEEDED, JScrollPane.HORIZONTAL_SCROLLBAR_AS_NEEDED);
    panel.add(deptListscroll, DeptPanel);
    [\code]

    i get a '.class' exspected error

    Where is that error thrown?
    Full error message and stack trace would be good.

    That first line doesn't work; you have to supply an 'exemplar', i.e. an example array for the method (defined in the Collection interface). So that line should be:

    Java Code:
    collection.toArray(new Department[0]);
    What are you going to do with the array returned by the method? As it is now you simply forget about it. As Tolls already wrote: it would be nice to see a bit more context ...

    kind regards,
