[Solved] automatic payment; Ether Balance in function

Jonathan Asks: automatic payment; Ether Balance in function
I’m trying to write a smart contract which can receive and send Ether and a Token I created (COMMToken). The goal is that as soon as the contract receives 1 ETH it does two things:

  1. the contract sends 50 COMM (the Token I created) to the address who sends the 1 ETH
  2. the contract forwards the 1 ETH to the creator of the contract

Right now my code looks looks like this:

// SPDX-License-Identifier: MIT pragma solidity ^0.8.5;

import “./COMMToken.sol”;

contract receiveAndSend is COMMToken {

// functions to be able to receive Ether
receive() external payable {}
fallback() external payable {}

function getBalance() public view returns (uint) {
    return address(this).balance;

// functions to be able to send Ether
function sendViaCall(address payable _to) public payable {
    (bool sent, bytes memory data) = _to.call{value: msg.value}("");
    require(sent, "Failed to send Ether");

// code to forward 50 COMM to retailer if getBalance == 1 (1 ETH were sent from the retailer)
uint EthValue = getBalance();

function COMMTransfer(uint EthValue) public pure returns (string) {
    if (EthValue == 1) {
        transferFrom(address(this), 0x14723A09ACff6D2A60DcdF7aA4AFf308FDDC160C, 50);
    } else {
        return "still no payment received";

// code to forward 1 ETH to distributor = msg.sender address
function ETHTransfer(uint CommValue) public {
    if (balanceOf == 0) {


this is the error I get right now..

I really appreciate any help I get!

Error at line 27 (function COMMTransfer())
