    Default Simple Repeat.

    How would I go about doing a simple command to repeat the entire code/program when a button is clicked (The final part of the code is a yes - try again, or no - exit button dialog).

    Netbeans IDE 7.1.1.

    One way would be to put the code in a loop. It really depends on the structure of the code. Is it a GUI program or does it use the console?

    It has several showMessageDialogs, a dropdown box, 1-4 console messages, but besides that, nothing with a gui. I don't really like loops, is there another way?

    A loop is the best choice. You will need to know how to use them if you want to write anything but trivial programs. Start now.

    Another poorer choice would be a recursive call to the method that runs the complete program.
