    Can you explain what it means to "execute a txt file"?

    Post a few sample lines from a text file
    and show what happens when each line is "executed"

    Do you mean that you want the program to read the file a line at a time and display that line when a GUI button is pressed? Each button press will display the next line.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Default Re: how to read and execute the whole .txt file

    i want the dialog box display all the content in a single dialog box only...
    In the loop: Read the contents and add an endline character "\n" at the end of each line and concatenate the line to the String that is to be displayed in the dialog box.
    Display the String after the end of the loop has gotten all the lines.

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with
    [code=java]
    <YOUR CODE HERE>
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
