Oh I see - he failed to mention that. Your suggestion works perfectly. Cheesy
2  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / If statements comparing a string to a string? (a = "text" doesn't work) on: 2011-04-07 11:51:28
Hiya - I've been lurking the forums for a while looking for good re-introductions to Java programming (I've done a bit of C# about a year ago).

Anyway - I've been following a series of videos on TheNewBoston on Java, and I've hit a bit of a dead end.

I am trying to compare the contents of a text String to a String value in an If statement, but I can't seem to get it to acknowledge that the two are the same - Could you try and explain what I am doing wrong? The video only deals with Int comparing which is pretty simple to understand, compared to my own little attempt.

      String ishumantest;
     
      System.out.println("Are you a human? If so type in yes");
      ishumantest = userinput.nextLine();
      // FOR DEBUGGING INPUT
     //System.out.println();
     if (ishumantest == "yes")
      {
         System.out.println("You are welcome to enter.");
      }
      else
      {
         System.out.println("Non-Humans not allowed.");
      }
   }
