    Exclamation System.out.println("Message"); Console Problem

    So Its Kinda a task/Problem

    When i use the:
    System.out.println("Message");

    It Displays like this:
    |Message
    ^ That being the Mouse Thing.

    I want it to display in the console like this:

    You will have to execute that statement BEFORE the statement that prints the "|"

    I think he's just generally talking about the cursor position, and not an actual String.

    There is not much positioning done on the console. The main thing you can do is move the cursor to the next line with a new line character.
    If you want the cursor to stay on the same line as what you have printed, do not print a new line char.

    Where do you want the cursor after you print? Print a newline if you want the cursor to be on the next line. Don't print a newline if you want the cursor on the same line as what you printed.

    println is the only print method that is defined to go to a newline. For the other print methods it depends on what you print.

    When using Println It goes before the print, if i type it goes to the next line but if you click after the equals in goes where i want it? Hard to understanding how i suppose to print my line in the console without printing it? o.o

    What kind of console are you printing on? I can't get the cursor to move ahead of a String that is printed.

    Why don't you just make it with a textbox and a label?
