I have
String myStr = "[0,45]";

I want to set the min and max variables as below :

String min = "0"
String max= "45"

how to do that?

Hi, there must be about a dozen ways to do this one. Here are a few. Take a look at the JavaDoc for the classes mentioned and see if any of them sounds fun. These are probably in order from least learning curve to the most, depending on what you already know ...

String.indexOf to find the comma and String.substring the left and right parts.

String.split on a comma delimiter

StringTokenizer with a comma delimiter

Scanner with a comma delimiter - has the advantage that it can convert to int as you pull parts out of the string.

Regular expressions. See Pattern and Matcher.

Let us know what you choose!

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
