Tables trouble. I need help to make them


I want to make a list going to n numbers depending on user input. I then want to put a second number in each place and print the entire table. As for testing I have tried with a length 4 and numbers 1,2,3,4 but I get a error: ArrayIndexOutOfBounds. I wanted it to print 1,2,3,4.

Scanner keyboard = new Scanner (System.in); System.out.println("Whats the length of the table?"); int lengde = keyboard.nextInt(); int[] minTabell = new int[lengde]; for (int i =1; i <= lengde+ 1; i++) { System.out.println((i) + (" give a number")); minTabell[i] = keyboard.nextInt(); } System.out.println(minTabell); keyboard.close();


Indexes in Java arrays are 0-based, while your for-loop starts from 1. So,

for (int i =1; i <= lengde+ 1; i++) { System.out.println((i) + (" give a number")); minTabell[i] = keyboard.nextInt(); }

should be

for (int i =0; i < lengde; i++) { // ^ ^^^^^^^^ System.out.println((i+1) + (" give a number")); // ^^^ minTabell[i] = keyboard.nextInt(); }

As for printing the content of the array, I suggest you use

for (int i : minTabell) System.out.println(i);


In Java array indexing starts at 0. The first element is positioned at minTabel1[0]. Your for-loop runs from 1 to lengde + 1, which means that you will try to fill a position outside of the array.


The first element of an array has the index 0. The last valid index of your array is lengde-1.

Try this:

for (int i=0; i < lengde; i++) { System.out.println((i) + (" give a number")); minTabell[i] = keyboard.nextInt(); }

To print the array, i suggest the following:
