    Default hello... i am a beginner...

    Item[]items = new Item[4];
    items[0]= new Item("n",2.2,4);
    items[0].setName("OJ");
    items[0].setCost(6.00);
    items[0].setQty(10);

    items[1]= new Item("n",2.2,4);
    items[1].setName("Milk");
    items[1].setCost(3.99);
    items[1].setQty(20);

    items[2]= new Item("n",2.2,4);
    items[2].setName("Snicker");
    items[2].setCost(0.79);
    items[2].setQty(75);

    items[3]= new Item("n",2.2,4);
    items[3].setName("Wheat Bread");
    items[3].setCost(2.49);
    items[3].setQty(5);


    items[0].getName();
    items[0].getCost();
    items[0].getQty();


    items[1].getCost();
    items[1].getName();
    items[1].getQty();

    items[2].getName();
    items[2].getCost();
    items[2].getQty();

    items[3].getName();
    items[3].getCost();
    items[3].getQty();

    Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);
    String input = scan.next();
    for(int i=0; i<items.length; i++)
    {
    if(input.equals(items[i].getName()))
    {
    System.out.println("Item Found");
    }

    else
    {
    System.out.println("Item Not Found");
    }

    }

    The output is
    Item Not Found
    Item Found
    Item Not Found
    Item Not Found

    It is comparing every ite
    m in the array and printing the message. How can only have it print Item Found with out the other message. Please help me with this.

    Please post your code in the section for asking questions. This section is for member introductions.

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


    You need to post a complete program and the full contents of the command prompt window that shows what the program printed and what the user entered.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
