The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development. We know game development can be a tough discipline and business, so we picked several chapters from CRC Press titles that we thought would be of interest to you, the GameDev.net audience, in your journey to design, develop, and market your next game. The free ebook is available through CRC Press by clicking here. The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more. Written by one of the world's top game designers, this book describes the deepest and most fundamental principles of game design, demonstrating how tactics used in board, card, and athletic games also work in video games. It provides practical instruction on creating world-class games that will be played again and again. View it here. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately. As a seasoned professional of the indie game arena, author Joel Dreskin gives you insight into practical, real-world experiences of marketing numerous successful games and also provides stories of the failures. View it here. An Architectural Approach to Level Design This is one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. It connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory. View it here.

As you can see from this image, the current print out of the hardware store is suppose to be like that but I got it like this:

[url="http://puu.sh/1nA7i"]http://puu.sh/1nA7i[/url]


here is the code that prints the hardware store.

[CODE]
public void printReport()
{
// get the hardware stock from the store.
HardwareStock stock = store.getStock();

int length = stock.listSize();

String message = " ";

HardwareItem item = null;

message ="itemID ItemName pOrdered pInstore pSold manuPrice selling Price \n";
if(store.getFileLoaded() || length > 0)
{
for(int index = 0; index < length; index++)
{
item = stock.elementAt(index);

message += String.format("%d %s %d %d %d %.2f %.2f%n", item.getItemID(), item.getItemName(), item.getNumOfPartsOrdered(),
item.getNumOfPartsLeft(), item.getNumOfPartsSold(), item.getManufactuaterPrice(), item.getStoreSellingPrice());

}
this.reportTA.setText(message);
}
}
[/CODE]

please let me know if there's anything else you need.

Try setting a monospaced font.
Lucida Console, Courier New, etc... or just the default Font.MONOSPACED font.
Check the java.awt.GraphicsEnvironment and java.awt.Font javadocs for info on how to get a Font.

Other option (nicer) is to use a JTable. Edited by ppgamedev

Sun created some very good tutorials on Java. They are still available from Oracle:
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/index.html

And here is the specific part related to JTable:

Thanks, I actually just tried my self and got this:

[url="http://puu.sh/1nD85"]http://puu.sh/1nD85[/url]

now naturally that's all the items from the list and. Here is what i did:

[CODE]
// print the report (if there's anything in it.)
public void printReport()
{
// get the hardware stock from the store.
HardwareStock stock = store.getStock();

int length = stock.listSize();

String message = " ";

double TotalValue = 0.0;
int totalStock = 0;
HardwareItem item = null;

String[] colunmNames =
{
"Item ID",
"Item Name",
"pOrdered",
"pInStock",
"pSold",
"Manufacturer Price",
"Store selling price"
};

Object[][] data = null;

if(store.getFileLoaded() || length > 0)
{
for(int index = 0; index < length; index++)
{
item = stock.elementAt(index);

Object[][] data2 =
{
{ item.getItemID(),
item.getItemName(),
item.getNumOfPartsOrdered(),
item.getNumOfPartsLeft(),
item.getNumOfPartsSold(),
item.getManufactuaterPrice(),
item.getStoreSellingPrice()
}
};

this.reportTable.setModel(new DefaultTableModel(data2, colunmNames));

}


}


}

[/CODE]

the program has 8 entries in the list so far, but it only shows one, am I on th right track?

Do you remember?

First time the code was given to you.
Second time just a hint.
Well done!
I bet next time you'll solve it by yourself.
This is called "learning process" and you're doing it fine. Congratulations
