    Please help
  2. I have done looked at line 33 on the code and i didnt see nothing wornge

    EDITED: i am new to coding so ya dont hurt me
  3. Can you send us line 33?
  4. String name = e.getClickedInventory().getItem(4).getItemMeta().getDisplayName();

  5. Maybe your Player object is null, because itemMeta#getDisplayName() return the full name of current item, with colored codes and etc.
  6. Then getItem returns null (air) or it contains no itemmeta. Please check for null.

  7. Are you sure, that there is an item on that slot, because it seems like there is not or it has no metadata.
