Hoping for a little bit of help, i've a gui designed which takes in information from the user and saves it to a .txt file. Is it possible to measure the actual length of that file and return a value to the user in bytes, and if it is how could i get it to work

Thanks for any Help

In the File class API you'll find a length method that returns the length as a long. If you learn to work with the API docs, you'll find answers to your questions pretty quickly, much more quickly than waiting for someone to post a reply...
