    How do I create a Class file which prints out a menu?

    Hey all, new around here...

    I would be making a menu with sub-menus. As I didn't want my codes to be too messy... I was thinking of making a class for my sub-menus... Now, I think this is possible... But not too sure on how to do it... Could someone give me some tips here?

    Thanks in advance

    I'de say create a super abstract class call it 'menu' or somthing like that.
    it will have to hold a variable that's conected to it's father menu, and an array for it's sub menu.
    then everytime you need aditional sub menu simply inheret the super class.
    somthing like that:

    public abstract class Menu(){
    protected Menu father;
    protected Menu [] children;
    // all other variables

    public Menu(){....}
    // and all the neccesary functions
    }

    Hmm... Sorry... I am still fairly new to java, haven't touched on super abstract class yet... Don't think I would know how to use it...

    I have done my main menu looping, just need to get the sub menu done... But not sure on how to create my submenu class and how to use my my main to call out the sub menu...

    Was thinking something like...

    if(choice==2)
    //this is where i would call out the submenu class...

    But not too sure on the code on how to call it out...

    Sorry, I am still very new to this... Thanks for your patience and time
