Hallo there. I am a new user of eclipse. I am working on a game i want to
create with eclipse, and i want to store some data and keep scores. So i must handle files. But i have problems finding a file. I am using Scanner to find the file, but every path i insert in new File(" ") doesn't find the file. I also used FileInputsStream and i have the same problem. It is very important to proceed with the game, and i am stuck on something so meaningless.
I want to put text on some buttons, and the text must come from the file.
Here is my code...

import java.util.Scanner;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.widget.Button;

public class Main extends Activity{

	protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
		Button b1=(Button) findViewById(;
        Button b2=(Button) findViewById(;
        try {	
     			Scanner input = new Scanner(new File("input.txt"));
     			b2.setText("it found it");
     		} catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
     			// TODO Auto-generated catch block

I get the message "didn't" on the second button all the time.
The organisation of my files for eclipse can be seen in the pic below (i work on the project gh)...
Any help would be very useful!!! Thanks!!!

Your question really has nothing to do with Eclipse, it's a general Java programming question. You'll probably get better response by asking for help on a general programming forum, such as Stack Overflow or Java Ranch.
