Im so close I can feel it, I am having a problem with my array.

also have some questions

can an array be filled with string data?
how would you make 5 lines of string data go down then right? and loop?
why would my teacher want us to use arrays?

Use arrays to create an applet that lists five of your favorite songs. The applet should:
• scroll the list of song titles, one at a time
• each song title should start at the top of the applet and scroll to the middle then, scroll off the right hand side
• each new song title should scroll in a different colour
• the applet should loop, that is, when it gets to the end of the list, start over again at the beginning of the list

Probably best to continue this conversation in this thread to save someone having to repeat everything Fred said there.
