    Default Display text file content into the console in sequence order ?

    Hello,
    I am trying to display the contents in my text file into the console in sequence order, so it looks like an action replay from user inputs.
    this is my text file:

    Kardo
    1
    2
    Kalio
    1
    1
    Kardo
    2
    2
    Kalio
    2
    1
    Kardo
    3
    2

    this is what i have so far:
    System.out.print("Woud you like to replay the actions (y/n)? ");
    String answer = input.getPrompt();
    if (answer.equalsIgnoreCase("Y")) {
    File file = new File("Actions.txt");

    try {

    Scanner scanner = new Scanner(file);

    while (scanner.hasNextLine()) {
    String line = scanner.nextLine();
    System.out.println(line);

    }
    scanner.close();

    } catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
    e.printStackTrace();
    }
    System.exit(0); // terminate the program

    }

    any help on how to do it would be great!
    (I am a beginner)

    What is the program's output supposed to look like? What does the program output now?

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:
    [code=java]
    <YOUR CODE HERE>
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    the output should be the text file content in the java console but in a sequence order (ie: 3 seconds delay between each display),
    at the moment it just gives me a blank display.

    Please post what the program's output should be when it reads the contents of the file shown in post#1. I have no idea what you mean by "in a sequence order".

    Also post the program's current output.

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:
    [code=java]
    <YOUR CODE HERE>
    [/code]

    Default Re: Display text file content into the console in sequence order ?

    the current output is blank, by sequence order i mean to display the contents in the text file in order, this is my text file's content from user input:
    Kardo
    1
    2
    Kalio
    1
    1
    Kardo
    2
    2
    Kalio
    2
    1
    Kardo
    3
    2



    i want to display it in the console one by one :
    for example:
    kardo
    (2 seconds)
    1
    (2 seconds)
    2
    (2 seconds)
    kalio
    (2 seconds)
    .
    .
    .

    If you are asking how to have the program pause for 2 seconds between printing to the console, look at the Thread class's sleep() method.

    no i am programming a simple tik tak toe game, my aim is to record all the player inputs and at the end do action replay and display all the moves in the console.
    i have already designed the game, but i am unable to replay the actions into the console.
    any help would be great

    Sorry, you lost me. I thought you wanted to have a pause between the display of lines on the console.

    What is the problem you are having doing: " replay the actions into the console."

    The posted code can't be compiled and executed for testing to see what it does. You need to post a small, complete program that compiles, executes and shows the problem.
