    Default Help with a Java Methods Program

    ive created a java program that the user enters their name and the program will then print out hello (whatever their name is) and goodbye (whatever their name is). the code i have shown create a program that allows for user input but it will not add the users name after hello or goodbye.

    any help is appreciated.
    indents are correct in my program

    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class HelloGoodbye
    {
    	public static void main(String[] args)
    	{
    		Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);
    		System.out.print("Enter your name : ");
    		String name = in.nextLine();
    		hello(name);
    		goodbye(name);
    	}
    	static void hello(String name)
    	{ 
    		System.out.println("Hello" + name);
    	}
    	static void goodbye(String name)
    	{ 
    		System.out.println("Goodbye" + name);

    it will not add the users name after hello or goodbye.
    Can you copy the contents of the command prompt window and paste it here so we can see what you are talking about?

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:

    [code]
    **YOUR CODE GOES HERE**
    [/code]

    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.

    The code works for me.
    How are you executing the program?

    Add this line following the line where name is being read:
       System.out.println("name="+name+"<");  // show what was read
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
