Some of you might know this program from a recent post of mine, i am writing a flood-it solver and it is nearly finished apart from that my function that thinks ahead dosent work, the problem is that somehow my main board ( globalBoard ) somehow picks up values from the temp board in the thinkAhead function called ( newBoard ) i have posted the code sorry its a bit long the thinkAhead function is close to the bottom

public class Board

I suspect the issue is the same as before, except this time harder to find where it's happening.

Basically in Java when you go a = new A(); b = a;, a and b are now the same object, so b.setVal(2). will result in a.getVal() been 2. This applies to arrays and objects. This does not apply to primitives.

I changed it to

Square[][] newBoard = board.clone();

but it didn't change anything it still picks up values it shouldn't, i was researching and i found something that said that the clone() method doesn't work for multi dimensional arrays

Perhaps the issue is that individual elements in the arrays are coming from some where else and are been put into the array by reference. This would have the same behavior has previously described. Could this be the case?

It could be i will have a look can you give me an example of what to look for, also i debugged my program and saw that even tho i was cloneing the array

Square board = new Square[14][14];
Square newBoard;
newBoard = board.clone();
newBoard2[0][0].tempChange(4);

when i changed a value in newBoard it still changed in board

The problem was what you said but the clone() method didn't make a new/unconnected copy of my array of objects it just made a reference which is what it was doing in the first place so i made my own copy method which seemed to fix things

	public Square[][] copy( Square[][] board )
	{
		Square[][] newBoard = new Square[14][14];

		for ( int a = 0; a < board.length; a++ )
		{
			for ( int b = 0; b < board[a].length; b++ )
			{
				int col = board[a][b].getNum();
				int score = board[a][b].getScore();
				int gId = board[a][b].getGroupid();
				int[][] groupArray = board[a][b].getGroupArray();
				newBoard[a][b] = new Square();

				newBoard[a][b].tempChange(col);
				newBoard[a][b].setScore(score);
				newBoard[a][b].addToGroup(gId);
				newBoard[a][b].setGroupArray(groupArray);
			}
		}

		return newBoard;
	}

P.S int0x80 thanks for the tip that will be helpful when posting thing in the future :D
