    Default How can I do this with my array please ?

    Hi, I'm not sure if I have posted this in the right section but :

    String myArray[][] =      {{" "," "," ","X","X","X"," "," "," "},
                                       {" "," "," ","X","X","X"," "," "," "}, 
                                       {" "," "," ","X","X","X"," "," "," "},
                                       {"X","X","X","X","X","X","X","X","X"},
                                       {"X","X","X","X","O","X","X","X","X"},
                                       {"X","X","X","X","X","X","X","X","X"},
                                       {" "," "," ","X","X","X"," "," "," "},
                                       {" "," "," ","X","X","X"," "," "," "},
                                       {" "," "," ","X","X","X"," "," "," "}};

    My array prints that to the screen. Is there any way I can set a size to make it bigger.

    Example, my screen size is say 600x600, but this will only take up a tiny bit of the screen, how would I make it fit full screen?

    thanks

    If you're using this as a model to create a GUI, then yes, you can expand the size, but if this being run as a console application then your options are much more limited.

    I want it to actually create a game and move the pieces around, is there a way I can create a 2D array with images in the same setup?

    thank you

    Sure. If this were a Swing GUI, then you could either use JLabels or graphic sprites to move around. This would require effort though to learn the Swing GUI library.
