Hi,

I've been working on this code for a hangman game but have got a problem with it. The problem is that it only checks for the last letter of the secrect word.

Thanks in advance,

John.

public class HangmanGuts extends Frame
{
{
String CurWord = "";
String dashes = "";
int guesses;
guesses = 0;
int j;
int a;
int counter;
counter = 0;
String curChar = "";
String curCharDash = "";
String UserGuess;
String words[]={"Mountain", "Mole", "Locker", "Routier", "Grim", "Insult", "Indepedent", "Sandbag", "Proposal", "Cricket"};

a = (int)(Math.random() * 10);
CurWord = words[a];
dashes = "";
for (int i = 1; i<=CurWord.length(); i++)
dashes +="-";
System.out.println(CurWord);
System.out.println("Welcome to Hangman, type a letter and press enter");

for (int c=0; c<=10; c++)
{

UserGuess = "";
UserGuess = EasyIn.getString();

for (j=0; j <CurWord.length()-1; j++);
{
curChar = String.valueOf(CurWord.charAt(j));
curCharDash = String.valueOf(dashes.charAt( j ));

if(curChar.equalsIgnoreCase(UserGuess)&& curCharDash.equals("-"))
dashes = dashes.substring(0,j)+UserGuess+dashes.substring(j+1);
}

System.out.println(dashes);

if(counter == 10)
{
System.out.println("You lose!");
System.out.println("The word was "+CurWord);
counter = 0;
break;
}
else if(dashes.equalsIgnoreCase(CurWord))
{
System.out.println("You win!");
counter = 0;
break;
}
}

}
}

public class runHangman
{
public static void main(String args[])
{
HangmanGuts a = new HangmanGuts();
}

}
