I am trying to populate an ArrayList using user input. Each input I thought should register as it's own index in the ArrayList ? Problem I am having is my ArrayList is only holding the current value that was entered, should I have some type of loop that will add the elements to the array ? and/or am I using the ArrayList in the wrong way ? Thank you !

You're creating a new list each time.

Just create the instance of the arraylist before the while loop. It will work
