RandomAccessFile/GUI question?

Hi

I have created a User interface that allows the user to select a file from a list. When the user selects a file they then click an open button which will then open the file, read and use the data in the file.

At the moment I just have a number in each of the files and am trying to open the file and print the number so that I know that the file is open and the data read. Here's the section of my code that reads the input file:

public void openFile(String filename) {
    System.out.println( filename );
    try {
        String file2 = path + "\\" + filename;
        standardTest = new RandomAccessFile(file2, "r");
    } catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
        System.out.println("Exception caught" + e);
    } catch (IOException e) {
        System.out.println("Exception caught" + e);
    }
       
    boolean EOF = false;
    while(!EOF) {
        try {
            int data = standardTest.readInt();
            System.out.println("Read value = " + data);
        } catch (EOFException e) {
            EOF = true;
        } catch (IOException e) {
         System.out.println("Exception caught" + e);
        }    
    }
           
}


When I run this, select a file and hit the open button it prints out the filename but does not print out the integer value in the file.

Can anyone help me with this?
Thanks

hi
try following instead of reading integer try reading the String
try
{
   //ur code for creatiing the file object
   String s1 = null;
   while((s1=standardTest.readLine())!=null)
  {
    Syatem.out.println("Contents Of File==>"+s1);
  }
}
catch(Exception rr)
{
  rr.printStackTrace();
}

hi there,

I hope this works


import java.io.*;

public class file1
{
     public static void main(String []args)
{
     file1 f1=new file1();
     f1.openFile("file1.java");    
}    
     public void openFile(String filename) {
       RandomAccessFile standardTest=null;
   System.out.println( filename );
String line=null;
try {
        standardTest = new RandomAccessFile(filename, "r");
        while ((line = standardTest.readLine()) != null) {
            System.out.println(line);
        }
        return;
    }
catch(Exception e1)
{
}
finally {
    }
           
}
}

bye
