i want to delete all '-' in every element of that array....i try to to a looping, in every looping....the element involve....i use indexOf to get where the '-' is and then use deleteCharAt...like below cooding
StringBuffer cTest = new StringBuffer(outputPos[finaltest]); int tryElement; tryElement=(outputPos[finaltest]).indexOf("-"); cTest=cTest.deleteCharAt(tryElement);
but tryElement send a negetif value....how to solve this problem

In your code, when searching for substring "-", you searched in the String object. But when deleting, you used the StringBuffer object. So, after first deletion, the contents of the String object and the StringBuffer object are not the same anymore. And you may delete the wrong character. And if indexOf method returns negative value, it means there are no substring you are searching for in the String or StringBuffer object.
