    Default Identifier expected

    Currently, I'm designing a gui program that incorporates the use of Cardlayout. I am just beginning, but I can't seem to compile passed this first portion of code.

    Java Code:
    public class TeachersGradebook2{
    	JPanel panelholder; // Panel that contains the cards
    	JPanel mainMenu = new JPanel(); // Main Menu
    	JPanel addStudent = new JPanel(); // Add a student Menu
    	panelHolder = new JPanel(new CardLayout());
    	panelHolder.add(mainMenu, "0");
    	panelHolder.add(addStudent, "1"); <identifier> expected
    panelHolder = new JPanel(new CardLayout());
    ^ <identifier> expected
    panelHolder.add(mainMenu, "0");

    any ideas?

    You're calling code that can't be stuck out naked in the class. Rather it needs to be in a constructor or method or initialization block.

    Also, panelHolder was delcared as panelholder. Not the same.
