How do I read in strings from a text file, one digit on each line and use the digit to choose Choices in Combo options(drop down menus) I think that say theres 6 choices in each one so 0 would indicate choose the first and so on .Any ideas ?
Thanks in advance

Well, you can use BufferedReader to read the lines of text and then convert them into integers - something like this:

import java.io.*;

int chNum;

try {
    BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(filename));
    chNum = Integer.valueOf(br.readLine()).intValue();
    // You can read the rest of the lines here beyond the first one
}
catch(IOException ex) {
    // errors with the file
}
catch(NumberFormatException ex) {
    // what you read is not a number
}


And then you simply do this:

Choice combobox = new Choice();
....
combobox.select(chNum);


Hope, this helps,
-Aleks.

File fin = new File("Filename");
BufferedInputStream bIn = new BufferedInputStream(fsIn);
BufferdReader brIn = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(bIn));

String str = new String();
str = brIn.readln();
int s = dd.intValue(str);

combo1.getItemAt(s.intValue);

This is just a rough example, if you need more detail let me know

opps, supposed to look like this:

String str = new String();
str = brIn.readln();
Long dd = new Long(str);
int s = dd.intValue();

combo1.getItemAt(s.intValue);
