im trying to convert the int input into a string so that i can find the length of it and use the substring method. how may i go about this?

import java.util.Scanner;

public class OddEvenZero
{
	public static void main(String[] args)
	{
		int input = 0;
		int len = 0;
		int currentValue = 0;
		int numOdd = 0;
		int numZero = 0;
		int numEven = 0;
		int offset = 0;
		int end = 0;
		
		Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);
		
		System.out.println("Please enter an integer.");
		input = scan.nextInt();
		// need to convert this int (input) into a string here!!
		
		
		
		len = input.length();
		end = 1;
		currentValue = input.substring(offset, end);
		
		while (end <= len)
		{
			if (currentValue == 0)
			{
				numZero = numZero + 1;
			}
			
			else if (currentValue == 1 || currentValue == 3 || currentValue == 5 || currentValue == 7 || currentValue == 9)
			{
				numOdd = numOdd + 1;
			}
			else
			{
				numEven = numEven + 1;
			}
			
			offset++;
			end++;
		}
		System.out.println("Number of zeros: " + numZero);
		System.out.println("Number of even integers: " + numEven);
		System.out.println("Number of odd integers: " + numOdd);
		
	}
}

you don't have any problem to cast int to string
int myInteger = 25
String myString = myInteger;

what's your problem?!

im getting the compile error:

D:\ChThree\OddEvenZero.java:27: Obj is already defined in main(java.lang.String[])
String Obj = input;

when i use this code:

String Obj = "";
		
		Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);
		
		System.out.println("Please enter an integer.");
		input = scan.nextInt();
		
		String Obj = input;
		
		len = Obj.length();

you don't have any problem to cast int to string
int myInteger = 25
String myString = myInteger;

what's your problem?!

This is not valid at all.

To the OP, use String.valueOf(int value).

so, that's JAVA!
but when I was using it, I think I did something before!!!!!!!

Please do try answer posts, but do not leave pointless comments

Well, yes, this is the Java forum, so posting something that is not valid Java code is less than useful.

Honestly, I cannot even fathom what you are trying to say in the second line of that comment...

I really do not understand why some people even reply. It seems like they want to do anything BUT be helpful.

int myInt = 5;
String myStr;
myStr = "" + myInt;

Yes, this does work, but it is not an efficient way to go about it. As I posted above

int myInt=5;
String strValue = String.valueOf(myInt);

is more appropriate.

and this?

int myInt = 5;
String myStr;
myStr = myInt.tostring();

Is invalid. Primitives like int are not objects and do not have methods.
