    Default Need help debugging

    Okay so I am making a code which will ask for a user input and then make a pattern out of it (case insensitive) the first code works however it only checks if the last variable in the string is the same to the current variable in the string

    		public String makePattern()
    		{
    			char[]
    					charInput=userInput.toCharArray();
    			        String output ="A";
    			        int codeValue=65;
    			        for(int increment = 1; increment <= charInput.length-1;increment++)
    			          {
     
    			        	if((int)charInput[increment] == (int)charInput[increment-1])
    			        	  {
     
    			        	  } 
    			        	      else 
    			        	      {
    			        		    codeValue = codeValue+1;
    			                  }
    			        	      output = output+Character.toString((char)codeValue);
     
    			          } 
    			                  return output;
    		}

    This next code totally breaks my code (it was my attempt to make it check the whole string instead of the last variable

    		public String makePattern()
    		{
    			char[]
    					charInput=userInput.toCharArray();
    			        String output ="A";
    			        int codeValue=65;
    			        for(int increment = 1; increment <= charInput.length-1;increment++)
    			          {
    			        	for(int checkString = 0; checkString < increment; checkString++)
    			        	{
    			        	if((int)charInput[increment] == (int)charInput[checkString])
    			        	  {
     
    			        	  } 
    			        	      else 
    			        	      {
    			        		    codeValue = codeValue+1;
    			                  }
    			        	      output = output+Character.toString((char)codeValue);
    			        	}      
    			          } 
    			                  return output;
    		}

    The code is to ask for user input then make the first variable A and the second (if not equal to the variable at position 1) is supposed to be B example of sample inputs and outputs below.


    Input: Cat Output: ABC
    Input: Cool Output: ABBC
    Input: Football Output: ABBCDEFF
    Input: Inspiration Output: ABCDAEFGAHB
