    Default Need help with printing out info

    So basically Im trying to create a hospital program where someone can go in and do multiple functions including add a patient/doctor, edit their medical history, and then look at all of it. My problem is when I am trying to output a certain variable from an array of objects called patients. So basically have an array with each patient in an array cell and that patient includes multiple pieces of information, including name, age, id number, etc. My question is how can I just print one of those things off like I want patient in array cell 3's name. How can I do that?

    System.out.println( patientArray[3].getName() );

    Edit: Maybe it should be patientArray[2], but you get the idea.

    You should refer to the ArrayList API for these kind of answers. How does one get the item stored at a specific index in an ArrayList? You can find out how to do that in the API. That's how you'll learn to fish (instead of being handed the fish), and gain confidence in using the API.
