# LeetCode 6. ZigZag Conversion(java)

The string “PAYPALISHIRING” is written in a zigzag pattern on a given number of rows like this: (you may want to display this pattern in a fixed font for better legibility)
P A H N
A P L S I I G
Y I R

And then read line by line: “PAHNAPLSIIGYIR”
Write the code that will take a string and make this conversion given a number of rows:
string convert(string text, int nRows);
convert(“PAYPALISHIRING”, 3) should return “PAHNAPLSIIGYIR”.

#### 思路：通过观察这个N型的图案的组成，我们发现可以通过从上到下（0 ~ numRows - 1），再从下到上(numRows - 1, 1)，以此为反复，就可以得到想要的排列。所以解决的方法就是创建numRows个StringBuilder，每个StringBuilder都可以储存每行的字母，通过N型的排列来将字母一个个加进对应的行里。

public String convert(String s, int numRows) {
if (s.length() == 0 || numRows <= 1) return s;
int length = s.length(), index = 0;
StringBuilder[] sb = new StringBuilder[numRows];
for (int i = 0; i < numRows; i++) {
sb[i] = new StringBuilder();
}
while (index < length) {
for (int i = 0; i < numRows && index < length; i++) {
System.out.println(sb[i]);
sb[i].append(s.charAt(index));
index++;
}
for (int j = numRows - 2; j >= 1 && index < length; j--) {
sb[j].append(s.charAt(index));
index++;
}
}
StringBuilder res = new StringBuilder();
for (int i = 0; i < numRows; i++) {
res.append(sb[i]);
}
return res.toString();
