    hey everyone,

    So, this is a pretty noob thing probably, but I still need to know it.
    I've a string that looks like:
    Code (YAML):
    &d&lDELAY \n &7This title is 10 seconds delayed!
    And i need to split the string in two parts using string.split("\\n");
    Which is literally my code...

    But it's not splitting. I've already debugged everthing possible. But it only returns the whole string.

    Code (Java):
    String string = "&d&lDELAY \n &7This title is 10 seconds delayed!";
    String[] ss = string.split("\\n");
  2. Try this:
    Code (Java):
    String[] ss=string.split("\\\\n");

    Why so much backslashes?
  4. I found the same solution on Stackoverflow when I had this problem.
  5. I always do it this way

    Code (Java):

    String str = "your\nsplitstring";
    String[] arrOfStr = str.split("\n", 1);
    for (String a : arrOfStr)

    How will this work? 'cause \n is a regex for enter...
  7. Yes you're right I don't use \n I use an @ this will work. 100%

    That's smart, but I wanna use the \n as most people know that as a line break regex/symbol.
  10. Yes you're right when you provide it for download that's the better way. Even if you write it your description most people won't read it.

    Have a nice Sunday :p
