Need a little help
 
I am just learning java and need a tiny bit of help. The code below
is a project that I had to create. It works except for one small
part. When I click on the Edit menu and select Insert I am prompted
for the information to add to the arrays. After that it should add
the new record to the JTextPane in order sorted by the artist. For
some reason no matter how I try to sort this it always sorts only the
original data and leaves any new entries at the bottom. Can you see
where I wnet wrong and point me in the right direction to make the
sort work correctly? Thanks.

Rich

To compare Strings for equality you need to use String.equals not ==:

This needs to be:

if (arg.equals("SortArtist")) {
sort(artist);
}

That part actually works both ways but even changing it to this way
the added text stiil remains at the bottom and the original is sorted.

I guarantee you that you will have problems if you don't use .equals in
the future.

As to your other problem I don't see it when I run it here. It works
just fine. Is the code you are using different than what you posted?

I tried your program..very cool. I added Rich Mullins to the list after
I sorted it in Artist Order and he went into the right place.
You are aware that there is no duplicate checking right?

I feel stupid now...lol. There is not an error. If I put the entries
in beginning with a CAPITAL letter then the program does what it is
supposed to do. Lower case letters are always placed at the bottom.
Thanks for the help.

In that case, you might want to check out String.equalsIgnoreCase()...

The Collator class performs locale-sensitive String comparison. You use this
class to build searching and sorting routines for natural language text.
