I want to read in multiple lines from a file, but I am only able to get my program to read the first line. The program prints out two other lines but the values are zero.

double cost[3];
	int lowerRange[3];
	int higherRange[3];
	bool active[3];
	ifstream inClientFile("ad.txt", ios::in);
	for (int i=0; i<3; i++) {
	(inClientFile>>cost[i]>>lowerRange[i]>>higherRange[i]>>active[i]);
		Ad ad(cost[i], lowerRange[i], higherRange[i], active[i]);
cout << ad.getCost()<<" "<<ad.getRangeLower()<<" "<<ad.getRangeHigher()
<<" "<<ad.getState()<<endl;

What I am trying to do is get the file to read in four values, send them to the constructor and then prints them out. Any help is appreciated

Read in "true" or "false" from your file as a string and then convert it to boolean true or boolean false.
