    Hello all! I have a string list and I need to get the first string, and on a command or after a specific amount of time it should display the second string, then after a specific amount of time again it should display the third string and so go on.. and when it reached the last string it should return to the first string, I know I probably should iterate trough the list and set an index and stuff (thats what they said in a tutorial) can someone please explain me how iterating works? and will it do what I want? I know iteration looks like: if(iterator.hasNext()){ and stuff...anyway thanks for reading I'm kinda a noob and I'm incredibly tired right now so sorry... :s

    You might use something like

    Code:java
    1. ArrayList<String> msgs=new ArrayList<String>();
    2. msgs.put("first");
    3. msgs.put("second");
    4.  
    5. for(String msg:msgs){
    6. Bukkit.broadcastMessage(msg); // Output msg
    7. try {
    8. Thread.sleep(10000); // Sleep 10 sec.
    9. } catch(Exception e){
    10.  
    11. }
    12. }


    And if you don't want to let your program wait :

    Code:java
    1. public boolean onCommand(...){
    2. ArrayList<String> msgs=new ArrayList<String>();
    3. msgs.put("first");
    4. msgs.put("second");
    5.  
    6. new Thread(){ public void run() {
    7. for(String msg:msgs){
    8. Bukkit.broadcastMessage(msg); // Output msg
    9. try {
    10. Thread.sleep(10000); // Sleep 10 sec.
    11. } catch(Exception e){
    12.  
    13. }
    14. }}.start();
    15.  
    16. }


    (Everything is an example, I didn't try this, let me know when it doesn't work !)
