    Default Return all values in an ArrayList from a method

    Hi guys,

    Would anyone know how to get all values from an ArrayList using a method? I have the following code set up;

    	public Object getList() {
    		for (int j=0; j < test.listArray[start][end].size(); j++) {
    			return test.listArray[start][end].get(j);
    		}
    		return null;
    	}

    This code only returns the first value in the ArrayList as the return null terminates the loop. Is there anyway to get around this?

    I know the code does iterate fine because I have tested it with a System.out.println() snippet but I need it to work within a method.
