try the following:

boolean check = false;   // declare variable *outside* try/catch blocks
try
{
   check = false;
}
catch (the exception)
{
}
try
{
      if (check ==true)
      {

hey objects,

i'm sorry, i should have also mentioned that the boolean check = false; --> is in the catch block of the first try catch blocks.

yes, I'm saying you need to move it *outside* so its visibale in both blocks
See the code I posted above

-->>i understand that, however, if a catch is caught, i need the boolean to be false, otherwise true. so to my knowledge, i believe this will not work if i have it outside of the catch, as the var will always be false.

->Is there any way where i can catch both of teh exceptions then, essentially joining the try, catch blocks. Or any way to define the variable to be called from outside, idea if possible like making it Perminent throughout...

-->>HAHA,

-->>:P.....

-->>I started to think.. and logically thought of a for loop outside of all of this try catch blocks, then implemented the

-->>break statement when a catch was caused... making the loop break... the loop is only in one iteration...


:P


-->>Practical Method, i'd say hey?

-->>Thanks Guys...

What CEHJ suggested would not work. You were setting the flag in the wrong place.
What I suggested was not the same as what CEHJ stated, a split is not necessary.

Try his suggestion if you like, check will never get set :)
