Description _ tboudreau 2009-05-27 21:25:18 UTC
Say you have an enum PaddleMotion (UP, DOWN, STILL).  Write a keyListener like this (note the "setRightPaddleMotion"
method does not yet exist).

        public void keyPressed(KeyEvent e) {
            switch (e.getKeyCode()) {
                case KeyEvent.VK_A :
                    setRightPaddleMotion (PaddleMotion.UP);

Accept the hint to create the "setRightPaddleMotion" method.  You get

    private void setRightPaddleMotion(PaddleMotion UP) {

"paddleMotion" would make a more sensible name than "UP"
