the only problem i have now is that when i enter the symbols to draw the border and fill for the rectangle, this is what is drawn:
lets says witdh 10 and length 5, the border is % and the fill is @.
%%%%%%%%%%
%%
%%
%%
%%%%%%%%%%
The filling @ refuses to be drawn and it should look like this but it doesn't:
%%%%%%%%%%
%@@@@@@@@%
%@@@@@@@@%
%@@@@@@@@%
%%%%%%%%%%

This all happens in void draw() loop.

This

void setDrawRectangleBorder()
{
	char border;
	cout << "Enter the character you would like to see as the border of the rectangle:";
	cin >> border;
 
}

Does not do anything useful.

Try this for the Draw() function:

for(int i=0;i<width;i++)
	{cout<<"%";
		for(int j=0;j<lenght-2;j++)
		{ if(i==0 || i==width-1)
			cout<<"%";
		  else
			  cout<<"@";
		}
		cout<<"%"<<endl;
	}

In the set functions i don't thing u need to declare the variables already declared in the class..
