_readText(String filename)

I'm using the predefined methods for loading a *.txt file to a program I'm developing with EjsS. The command I use is:


With this, I thought I would be able to load the file List1.txt (which only contains a string of characters) into the aforementioned program, but it doesn't seem to work...
Is there something I misunderstood about this command?

On another note, is it possible to select by hand the file you want to load without specifying its filename in the command?

Thank you in advance,

The Java methods for writing and reading work. But, please, make sure that the file is located where the method expect. Typically, the path of the file refers to the place where the jar is located.

See attached example. Save a file and notice where is the data.txt.
