int num = sc.nextInt(); sc.nextLine(); // add this here String str = sc.nextLine(); The input stream contains a \n character left behind after reading the int, the `sc.nextLine();` will consume that leftover character, so the next call for `nextLine` will read the input correctly.

🅰🅹 - ɪ'ᴍ ᴄʀɪᴍɪɴᴀʟʟʏ ɢᴏᴏᴅ! because if the string is empty you can call sc.nextLine() again, to catch the real string input.

Jaya krishna You are right. So this maybe a bug.

Jaya krishna So what about this input 1000 abcd

Thanks everyone. I got the problem. It's happening with nextLine() method but if we will take next() method it's working fine.

marjel101 If str already blank then why this condition?

sc.nextLine() reads string just after taking 3 by sc.nextInt(); Try as 3 abc Instead of 3 abc edit: here, nextInt() read the integer value, before a space or \n encounters. what ever after you will be read by sc.nextLine() ends with '\n'.

🅰🅹 - ɪ'ᴍ ᴄʀɪᴍɪɴᴀʟʟʏ ɢᴏᴏᴅ! Yes. But it actually because of the methods you used... And same it is for above input you mentioned....

You could also check for input on the same line or the next by adding this after the sc.nextLine(): if (str.equals("")) str = sc.nextLine();

marjel101 means that, It works for both input type inputs, inline and separate lines.. A logic.

Just add this line whenever you take int or double value from a user "sc.nextLine();" Because when you enter a number then press "enter". Now both string value and int collapsed... How come enter = string? Answer: "\n" that is how I learned lol... maybe it is wrong

Hr Hridoy You are at wrong place.

Try this code. It works import java.util.Scanner; public class Program { public static void main(String[] args) { Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in); String str = sc.next(); int num = sc.nextInt(); System.out.println("String = " + str); System.out.println("Number = " + num); } }

sc.nextline(); 🔄sc.next();

الاساطير -AR What is this?

when same object of Scanner class is used the objects treat the input as STACK and as by nature as stack is LIFO so the last input becomes the next most recent output, so irrespective of any data type(i.e. separated by deli meters in the console) your output's gonna differ each time.
