    Default Why doesn't My SetFillColor() work?

    Hi there,

    I'm trying to create a rainbow and this is what I did...all I've managed to get is 6 ugly arches, but I can't make the SetFillColor() method to set each oval's color...can anyone please help?!:confused:


    Java Code:
    import acm.program.*;
    import java.awt.*;
    public class Rainbow extends GraphicsProgram {
    	public void run() {
    		int arcX = -(getWidth()/6);
    		int arcY = getHeight()/8;
    		int x = getWidth()*3/2;
    		int y = getHeight()*2+300;
    		for (int i=0; i<=6;i++){
    			GOval arc = new GOval(arcX, arcY, x, y);
    			if (i==0) {arc.setFillColor(;}
    			if (i==1) {arc.setFillColor(;}
    			if (i==2) {arc.setFillColor(Color.yellow);}
    			if (i==3) {arc.setFillColor(;}
    			if (i==4) {arc.setFillColor(;}
    			if (i==5) {arc.setFillColor(Color.magenta);}
    			if (i==6) {arc.setFillColor(Color.cyan);}
