    Question What format is a getText()?

    I would be very grateful if someone could tell me if when you do a getText() from a JTextArea is the getText() a string or a string array?

    I have used a JTextArea to enable a user to input multiple lines. I then want to send the getText() to another procedure e.g. callmethod(getText()); for analysing the text. For the callmethod that receives the getText() how should I define the format of the getText()?

    You need to read the API for this and learn to do this as a regular habit. It will answer this and many more questions you will have.

    If after reading it, you're still confused, please come on back and we'll discuss it.

    Much luck!
