    Default User Input (Press Enter)

    Hey!

    I don't know if this query is in the correct place. If it isn't, sorry, and could someone please move it.

    I am making a Volume calculator as my first piece of coursework and I need the user to input their measurements. I have done this using the following code:

    // This will ask the user to input the length
    System.out.println("Please enter the length: (in centimetres)");
    length = console.nextInt();

    What I am wandering is, How do I make it so before this bit comes up, I can say something like "Welcome to my Volume Calculator, Press Enter to continue"?

    (This is not needed for my coursework, I just wanna make it look a little nicer/professional.

    Thank you for reading and your help.

    Curtis.

    		System.out.println("Press enter to continue.");
    		console.nextLine();

    As simple as that; tell me if i've missed the point.

    You can read the next line without actually doing anything with the value.

    Edit: I'm too slow!

    We don't read minds. If you get errors then post the exact message here. As well as your code or if it is too long a SSCCE.
