    Default how to print out lines in a table- like form?

    May I know how to print out lines of text side by side, and aligned? Like this:

    Time: 3pm Date : 24/6/04
    Wins: 24 Losses: 34
    Weight: 50kg Height: 2.50m

    Thank you.

    If there are methods to the data, please just fill in my data with the methods.

    I don't know of any other ways other than
    System.out.println("Time: " + object.getTime() + "Date" + object.getDate());

    If you type that in using your methods instead of the ones I made up of course, you will get that exact format.

    I made one mistake with the date. It should read " Date: "

    there must be a space after the first quote because if there is not one, it will come together with the other data

    You might also want to look at the method format in the String Class API docs.

    OOOORRRRRR
    Perhaps you can make a toString method to always have it in that format and you will just have to call the toString method instead of writing System.out.println for every object you create
