    Default Array cannot be resolved

    I have been trying to find why I am getting this error and cannot seem to get on the right path. I am writing code to take in user inputed test scores through a JOptionPane and store the inputs into two arrays: one for test scores and one for student names. I then need to sort through the arrays to arrange them in order. I have created my arrays, as well as the method to sort the array, but am experiencing a "[array name] cannot be resolved" error. Can someone help me get on the right page? Why is this error occurring? What can I do to fix it?

    Thank you for your help!!


    Java Code:
    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
    public class P9 {
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    			int negativeScore = 1;
    			while (negativeScore > 0) {
    			int i = 0;
    			int [] testScoreArray= new int[50];
    			String [] studentNameArray = new String [50];
    			String testScoreInputString = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null, "What was the test score? Enter a negative (-) to end the program. ");
    			int testScoreInt = Integer.parseInt(testScoreInputString);
    			if (testScoreInt <0) {
    				negativeScore = 0;
    			testScoreArray[i] = testScoreInt;
    			studentNameArray[i] = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null, "What is the name of the student?");
    			// Sort the list
    	} //end main method
    		  /*method for printing numbers
    		  static void printList(int[] list) {
    		    for (int i = 0; i < list.length; i++)
    		      System.out.print(list[i] + "  ");
    		  }  end printList method*/
    		  //method for sorting the numbers
    		  static void selectionSort(int[] list) {
    		    for (int i = list.length - 1; i >= 1; i--) {
    		      // Find the maximum in the list[0..i]
    		      int currentMax = list[0];
    		      int currentMaxIndex = 0;
    		      for (int j = 1; j <= i; j++) {
    		        if (currentMax < list[j]) {
    		          currentMax = list[j];
    		          currentMaxIndex = j;
    		        } //end if
    		      }// end for with j as index
    		      // Swap list[i] with list[currentMaxIndex] if necessary;
    		      if (currentMaxIndex != i) {
    		        list[currentMaxIndex] = list[i];
    		        list[i] = currentMax;
    		      }// end if
    		    }// end for with i as index
    		  } //end selectionSort method
    		} //end SelectionSort class

    I am using eclipse; it won't let me even run the code, the only error I can see is the "testScoreArray cannot be resolved"

    On which line? And fix your indents/outdents, they're all over the place.


    edit Check your syntax. You have a ] that doesn't belong.
