    Default Java newbie, a little help please :)

    So basically, this is a rock, paper, scissors program. The main problem i have is getting my array to print all in one JOptionPane line by line.
    The java tutor at my school gave me these tips-
    Generate a portion of a String
    You can then take that String portion and add it onto a final output String

    String output = "";
    portion and add onto output by using the += operator

    JOP.showMessagDialog(null, output);

    but when i do this, i cant initialize "i" because its either missing or it has already been initialized. Also when i print, my it only shows the first element of my arrays. any idea?

    Java Code:
    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
    import  java.util.Random;
    public class proj3
    	public static void main (String[] args)
    		int[ ] compCArray = new int[100];
    		int[ ] yourCArray = new int[100];
    		int computerChoice;
    		int yourChoice;
    		int yourChoices =0;
    		int computerChoices =0;
    		int counterWin = 0;
    		int counterLoss = 0;
    		int counterTie = 0;
    		int totalGames =0;
    		String yourInput;
    		String playAgain = " ";
    		String output="Your Choices"+yourCArray[0] +"\n"+ "   Computer Choices Choices:"+compCArray[0];
    		JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null," [Welcome to Rock Paper Scissor's v2.]");
    		JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"[The rules are as follows]\n[Choose either]\n[Rock, Paper, or Scissors]\n[Paper Beats Rock, But loses to Scissors]\n[Rock beats Scissors, but loses to paper]\n[Scissors beats Paper, but loses to Rock]");
    		JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"[Chose]\n[0 for Rock]\n[1 for Paper]\n[2 For Scissors]");
    		//for (int i=0; i<yourChoice.length; i++){
    			yourInput = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("What is your Choice?");
    				yourChoice= Integer.parseInt(yourInput);
    				yourCArray [totalGames] =yourChoice;
    		//	}
    			//for (int j=0; j<computerChoice.length; j++){
    			computerChoice= (int) (Math.random() * 3);
    			JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"The Choices Were:\nComputer Choice"+computerChoice+ "\nYour Choice:"+yourChoice);
    				compCArray [totalGames] =computerChoice;
    				if(yourChoice == computerChoice){
    					JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"It is a tie, you both picked the same thing.  YOU LOSE!!");counterTie++;
    				else if(yourChoice == 0 & computerChoice == 2){
    					JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Congratulations, you chose Rock and the Computer Chose Scissors.  YOU LOSE!!");counterWin++;
    				else if(yourChoice == 1 & computerChoice == 0){
    					JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Congratulations, you chose Paper and the Computer Chose Rock.  YOU LOSE!!");counterWin++;
    				else if(yourChoice == 2 & computerChoice == 1){
    					JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Congratulations, you chose Scissors and the Computer Chose Paper.  YOU LOSE!!");counterWin++;
    				else if(yourChoice == 0 & computerChoice == 1){
    					JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Im sorry, you chose Rock, and the computer Chose Paper.  YOU LOSE!!");counterLoss++;
    				else if(yourChoice == 2 & computerChoice == 0){
    					JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Im sorry, you chose Scissors, and the computer Chose Rock.  YOU LOSE!!");counterLoss++;
    				else if(yourChoice == 1 & computerChoice == 2){
    					JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Im sorry, you chose Paper, and the computer Chose Scissors. YOU LOSE!!");counterLoss++;
    	 	playAgain = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Do you want to Play again? 'yes/no'");
            }while (playAgain.equals("yes"));
    		JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Total Games Played:  "+totalGames+"\n Total Wins:  "+counterWin+"\nTotal Losses:  "+counterLoss+"\nTotal Tie:  "+counterTie);
    		for(int i=0; i<totalGames; i++){

    Your forloop only runs while i is less than yourchoice.length, but you initialize yourchoice to 0, so it never enters the loop. Same with your second forloop and computerchoice.length.

    You actually don't need them for loops to achive what i think your aiming for. The problem is the way you are trying to build the output string.

    If the idea is to iterate over the arrays and create a string, then you should create a string for each array and use your last for loop to append each string using += then display both these strings in a JOptionPane.

    Java Code:
    String playerOut="You choises ";
    String compOut="Com choises";
    for(int i=0; i<totalGames; i++){
          playerOut+=yourCArray[i]+(" ");
          compOut+=compCArray[i]+(" ");    
    I think this is kinda what your aiming for
