    Question using a do while loop to search array


    I have got an array to generate random numbers and am now trying to introduce a boolean expression so that when the numbers are being generating, if a number is found to be in the array already another number is generated.

    I cannot compile the code below, as it says the for the } just after the while line "Syntx error, insert "while(Expression);" to complete DoStatement"

    Can anyone point me in the right direction with what I have done wrong?
    Does my code look like it will do what i want it to?

    Any help greatly appreciated - thank you

    My code is:

    public class BinaryTreeAction 
    	 public TreeNode tn;  // graphical representation of the node
    	 public TreeNode torch; // torch pointer to node
    	 public int NodeSize = 25;
    	 int amount = 6;   // number of integers needed to generate
    	 int[] nums = new int[amount]; 
    	 int i;
         // method for searching the array for duplicate numbers
       boolean fresh (int [] nums, int val){
          for (int i = 0; i < amount; i++){
             if (nums[i] == val) return true;
          return false;
     }// end fresh method
     //method to generate random numbers to insert into the tree
       public void randomNumber(){
          for (int i=0; i<amount; i++){  
                 nums[i] = (int) Math.floor(Math.random() * 100); 
            // generate numbers between 0 and 99
                nums[i] = nums[i] -50; 
           // minus 50 from the random number generated so that some of the final numbers are negative.
           for (int i = 0; i<nums.length; i++){
              System.out.println("random is " + nums[i]);
           while (not(fresh(nums,i)));	    
    }// end of randomNumber method
