I'm trying to run a program from NetBeans that takes a parameter for main when the program first starts. How can I pass that parameter to NetBeans? I'm using "run" but do not see any way to pass it a parameter.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Look in the project properties. There should be a place to set arguments for the java command (and compiler arguments as well, if you ever need them).

What is the menu navigational path to get to 'project properties"?

Thank you.

I'm using Netbeans 6.9.1, and I can get to them by right-clicking on the project in the projects window and choosing "Properties" from the pop-up menu. Then look under the "Run" category.

I think this thread would sit better on our IDEs forum. Moving.

Now I found it. Thank you. I populated it with a value and then ran and got the following error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 0
at practicestuff.PracticeStuff.main(PracticeStuff.java:7)
Java Result: 1

It seems like the jvm is not receiveing the parameter? Any help greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
