I am needing to write a program for someone that needs it to count by any number they manually enter into the program. I have the menu code written and now just need help with the counnting code. I know i most likely need to use a "for" loop but after that i am not sure.

so, if I input `5` it should count `5,10,15,20,25` or `1,2,3,4,5` ?

First of all, there is no need to write into an absolutely dead thread ..
Second, if you can't even think of a loop that can do 1 to 5, you might really want to consider starting from the basics ...
Third .. well here's a loop in 2 versions …

yes 5 10 15 20 and soo on

that's easy just put while loop that has a number in it then print the number then put an empty for loop and then add 5 to the number then repaint/ redraw the number and continue. it should look something like this:

``````int a = 0;
while (a == 0){
int num = 0;
for (int i = 0; i <= enter a number here that suits your delay; i++);
num += userEnteredNumber;
//repaint/set text etc.
}``````

Hope I hepled

1,2,3,4,5
can you do it sir?

Third .. well here's a loop in 2 versions ..first `for` and then `while loops`

``````for(int i = 0; i<5;i++){
System.out.println(i);
}
``````

or ...

``````int i = 0;
while(i<5){
System.out.println(i);
i++; // means i = i + 1
}
``````
commented: or the simpler version: System.out.println("1,2,3,4,5"); :) +13
