    Default My codes are not working functionally

    Hello, I create a program which asks user to enter name, middle name, last name, street number, street name, city, state and zip code, then show result.
    Everything works fine until street name, program show question but pass to the next question which is "Enter your city" to get input, it does not allow to enter street name. here is the codes please take a look at and help me;

    import java.util.Scanner;

    public class Program1

    public static void main(String[] args)
    String firstName;
    String middleInitial;
    String lastName;
    int streetNumber;
    String streetName;
    String city;
    String state;
    int zipCode;

    Scanner in;
    in = new Scanner (;

    System.out.println("Enter your first name: ");
    firstName = in.nextLine();

    System.out.println("Enter your middle name: ");
    middleInitial = in.nextLine();
    char middleInitialChar = middleInitial.charAt(0);

    System.out.println("Enter your last name: ");
    lastName = in.nextLine();

    System.out.println("Enter your street number: ");
    streetNumber = in.nextInt();

    System.out.println("Enter your street name: ");
    streetName = in.nextLine();

    System.out.println("Enter your city: ");
    city = in.nextLine();

    System.out.println("Enter your state: ");
    state = in.nextLine();

    System.out.println("Enter your zip code: ");
    zipCode = in.nextInt();

    System.out.println(firstName + " " + middleInitialChar + ". " + lastName );
    System.out.println(streetNumber + " " + streetName );
    System.out.println(city + ", " + state + " " + zipCode );

    After your Scanner gets the nextInt, it finds the next line symbol and uses it without your wanting it to. You should explicitly tell it to swallow the end of line symbol after getting the int like so:

    Java Code:
          System.out.println("Enter your street number: ");
          streetNumber = in.nextInt();
          in.nextLine(); // **** add this to get the Scanner to swallow the end of line symbol

    Also, when posting code here, please use code tags so that your code will retain its formatting and thus will be readable -- after all, your goal is to get as many people to read your post and understand your code as possible, right?

    To do this, highlight your pasted code (please be sure that it is already formatted when you paste it into the forum; the code tags don't magically format unformatted code) and then press the code button, and your code will have tags.

    Another way to do this is to manually place the tags into your code by placing the tag [code] above your pasted code and the tag [/code] below your pasted code like so:

    Java Code:
      // your code goes here
      // notice how the top and bottom tags are different
    Best of luck!
