Thread: open text file and edit any line start with name

  1. #1

    Default open text file and edit any line start with name

    I have a text file
    How can I write java swing code that opens the file and adds end of line this character </ok> each line that starts with the <ok>

    The following items are available in the text file
    <li>123>
    <ok>235>
    <li>345:1:2>
    <ok>345:1:2>
    It should be like this
    <li>123>
    <ok>235</ok>
    <li>345:1:2>
    <ok>345:1:2</ok>

    What have you tried?
    What are the steps the program needs to take to provide the desired solution?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Can you describe the steps to take without considering any specific programming language?
    What if the lines in the file were pieces of paper with words written on them and you had a pair of scissors, tape and a pen to make changes to the what was written on the paper.
    What steps would you take to get the desired output?

    Once you get the list of steps we can work on what statements would do that in java.

    Default Re: open text file and edit any line start with name

    It must first open a saved text file
    Access the values inside that file
    Find the lines that start with <OK>
    Recognize the number of characters after <OK>
    don't touch or edit that characters
    Scroll to the end of the line
    delete > from end of that line
    and add </OK> to end of that line ( or add </OK ( before > )end of that line)
    Repeat this until all lines starting with <OK> end with </OK>
    And ignore all other lines

    Access the values inside that file
    Ok, work on those steps first.
    Define a File class object with the path to the text file.
    Define a Scanner class object that receives that File class object in its constructor.

    For a test:
    read the first file of the file into a String variable by using the Scanner class's nextLine method.
    Print the contents of that line to show that you have read the first line ok.

    some think like that?
    File file = new File("G:\\aaa\\1.txt");
             try (Scanner sc = new Scanner(file, StandardCharsets.UTF_8.name())) {
                while (sc.hasNextLine()){
                    System.out.println(sc.nextLine());
                }
            }
            catch (IOException e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
            }

    What happened when you compiled and executed the program?

    Ok then the program works so far.
    Next these steps:
    Find the lines that start with <OK>
    Recognize the number of characters after <OK>
    don't touch or edit that characters
    Scroll to the end of the line
    delete > from end of that line
    Look at the String class for methods to do those steps to the String read by the nextLine method.
    To remove the ending character of a line use the substring method that starts at 0 ends one char short of the end.

    For debugging: Be sure to print out the new String contents after each new String is created from the last String.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Ok, one step at a time:
    Find the lines that start with <OK>
    Look at the String class's methods.
    Find the method that looks at the starting characters in the String.

    Here is a link to the API doc for the Java SE 8 classes:
    https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/api/index.html
    Find String in the lefthand window, click it and the API doc for String will be displayed,
    Scroll down to the Method Summary section and read them
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Default Re: open text file and edit any line start with name

    You need to print out the value in myStr so you can see if the results of the test are correct.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Default Re: open text file and edit any line start with name

    now how i must say if myStr is true add end of line </ok> ?

    --- Update ---

    Yes, it printed all the lines starting with <OK> correctly

    --- Update ---

    this is my code

    File file = new File("G:\\aaa\\oq.txt");
            try (Scanner sc = new Scanner(file, StandardCharsets.UTF_8.name())) {
                while (sc.hasNextLine()) {
    //                System.out.println(sc.nextLine());
                    String myStr = sc.nextLine();
    //                System.out.println(myStr.startsWith("<ok>"));
                    if(myStr.startsWith("<ok>")==true){
                        System.out.println(myStr);
                    }
                }
            } catch (IOException e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
            }

    Use an id statement:
    if(tested condition) {
        // do something if condition true
    }else {
       // do this if false
    }

    add end of line </ok>
    Use the + concatenation operator to concatenate one String to another:
    oneString + anotherString
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Default Re: open text file and edit any line start with name

    Is the code now updating lines as desired?
    One way to update the file is to copy and edit all the lines into a List, then write the contents of the List to the file.
    It is not possible to update the lines in the file while they are on the disk when the length of the lines is changing.

    Look at the PrintWriter class's println method for writing the lines from the List to the file.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    You are making good progress. You should be able to do it yourself.
    Create a File for the output file
    Create a PrintWriter using that File object in its constructor.
    use the PrintWriter class's println() method to write the lines to the file.
    Call the PrintWriter's close method after all the lines are written.

    Default Re: open text file and edit any line start with name

    it is my all code but write all lines in 1 line
    how i can fix it?

            File file = new File("oq.txt");
            File files = new File("testFile1.txt");
     
            try (Scanner sc = new Scanner(file, StandardCharsets.UTF_8.name())) {

    --- Update ---

    i use this
    writer.write(myStr+"\n");
    but i have just last problem
    If my text consists of 2 words and the between of this word is space, it deletes space when printing, for example, if it is Hello World, it writes HelloWorld in all text file

    The code has a list of if statements. Do you ever expect more than one of them to be true at the same time?
    If you expect only one if statement to be true, then you should this technique: if/else if/else where the ending else statement would be executed if none of the preceding if statements were true.

    write all lines in 1 line
    The output file should not be created inside of the loop. That would create a new file every time the loop iterates.
    If you want all the lines written to a single file, then create the file outside of the loop, write the lines to it inside the loop and close the file after the loop finishes.

    now it is my cod and work correctly just If my text consists of 2 words and the between of this word is space, it deletes space when printing, for example, if it is Hello World in original text, it writes HelloWorld This happens to all words in new text file for example in original text is
    <Azan ID="1">
    in new file write
    <AzanID="1">

    File file = new File("oq.txt");
            File files = new File("testFile1.txt");
