question about while loops

How can I make a while loop only loop once and then ask for user input again? Right now, my while loop goes on forever, but I want it to loop one time, then ask for user input.

sure. So this is what you while loop should look like:

while(yandn.equals("y")) { yandn = ""; Simon.add("hello"); Simon.add("helloooooo"); Simon.add("there"); Simon.add("how"); Simon.add("are"); Simon.add("you"); Simon.add("good"); Simon.add("bye"); Simon.add("i am"); Simon.add("leaving"); Simon.add("now"); Simon.add("bye"); Random S = new Random(); System.out.println(Simon.get(S.nextInt(Simon.size()))); System.out.println("Simon Says: would you like to continue?"); System.out.println("y or n"); yandn = scan.nextLine(); }

You'll notice the only difference is the top and bottom of the while loop. What's happening is yandn no longer equals "y" so the while loop will not repeat, but at the end it changes it back so that it repeats after the user says to.
