What I need is, on how can make it repeat another choice after you've chosen someone.

Like for example I've chosen choice 1 Jose Rizal, then I want to choose again another hero, How can I do that?

PLEASE I REALLY NEED YOUR HELP. THANK YOU VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE.
ANY HELP WILL BE APPRECIATED. THANKS.

just tell me if you want me to put my entire code in here. Thank You.

Edited 5 Years Ago by WaltP: Added CODE Tags -- please use them

You mean after the user chooses one hero and after that he should be able to choose another hero, right? If yes then this should work for you :

#include "stdafx.h"
#include "iostream"
#include "stdio.h"
#include "conio.h"
using namespace std;

int main()
{
int choice,desc;
char repeat;

while(true)
{

cout<<"\t\t\t\tPhilippine National Heroes\n\n";
cout<<"[1]Dr.Jose Rizal\n";
cout<<"[2]Andres Bonifacio\n";
cout<<"[3]General Gregorio Del Pilar\n";

cout<<"Enter the number of your Choice:\t";
cin>>choice;

switch(choice)
{
case 1: cout<<"\t\t\t\tJOSE RIZAL\n\n";
cout<<"(June 19, 1861 to December 30, 1896, Bagumbayan), was a Filipino polymath, patriot and the most prominent advocate for reform in the Philippines during the Spanish colonial era.";
break;

case 2: cout<<"\t\t\t\tANDRES BONIFACIO\n\n";
cout<<"(November 30, 1863 to May 10, 1897) was a Filipino nationalist and revolutionary."; 
break;

case 3: cout<<"\t\t\t\tGENERAL GREGORIO DEL PILAR\n\n";
cout<<" (November 14, 1875—December 2, 1899) was one of the youngest generals in the Philippine Revolutionary Forces during the Philippine Revolution and the Philippine-American War.";
break;

case 4: cout<<"\t\t\t\tGENERAL EMILIO AGUINALDO\n\n";
cout<<"(March 22, 1869 – February 6, 1964) was a Filipino general, politician, and independence leader." ;
break;

default : cout<<"\nInvalid Choice!";
}

cout << "\n";
}

getch();
return 0;
}

By the way, you can modify the While loop how ever you like, right now i simply made it to loop for infinity

Edited 5 Years Ago by nuclear: n/a

YES!
please.. is it possible?
if so, How?
please, I really need your help.

Sorry for the late reply, I'm also searching for ways in the internet.

Edited 5 Years Ago by meyumi_lelouch: n/a

Put the entire switch statement in a while loop saying:

while(choice != 4)

That way, the switch menu will keep repeating itself til the user enters 4, also add an extra option in your menu called exit. It should then look like this:

cout<<"\t\t\t\tPhilippine National Heroes\n\n";
cout<<"[1]Dr.Jose Rizal\n";
cout<<"[2]Andres Bonifacio\n";
cout<<"[3]General Gregorio Del Pilar\n";
cout<<"[4]Exit\n";

And of course your switch will be inside the while loop.

It didn't work. :(
All it did is to print out the title (which is Philippine National Heroes) infinitely, and I can't even make a choice.

This is the real code that I am working on, it's kinda long that's why I just used an short example of this in my first post:

While studying at St. Vincent Ferrer Seminary in Jaro, López Jaena served as a secretary to an uncle named Claudio López who was the honorary vice consul of Portugal in Iloilo. His ambition of becoming a physician, convinced his parents that this was the better course of action. López Jaena sought enrollment at the University of Santo Tomas but was denied admission because the required Bachelor of Arts degree was not offered at the seminary in Jaro. However he was appointed to the San Juan de Dios Hospital as an apprentice. Unfortunately, due to financial problems, his parents could not afford to keep him in Manila. He returned to Iloilo and practiced medicine in communities.During this period, his visits with the poor and the common people began to stir feelings about the injustices that were common. At the age of 18 he wrote the satirical story Fray Botod which depicted a fat and lecherous priest. Botod’s false piety always had the Virgin and God on his lips no matter how unjust and underhanded his acts are.This naturally incurred the fury of the friars who knew that the story depicted them. Although it was not published a copy circulated in the region but the Friars could not prove that López Jaena was the author. However he got into trouble for refusing to testify that certain prisoners died of natural causes when it was obvious that they had died at the hands of the mayor of Pototan. López Jaena continued to agitate for justice and finally went to Spain when threats were made on his life.López Jaena sailed for Spain in 1879. There he was to become a leading literary and oratorical spokesman for the Philippine reformal issues. Philippine historians regard López Jaena, along with Marcelo H. del Pilar and José P. Rizal, as the triumvirate of Filipino propagandists. Of these three Ilustrados, López Jaena was the first to arrive and may have founded the genesis of the Propaganda movement.López Jaena pursued his medical studies at the University of Valencia but did not finish the course. Once Rizal approached Lopéz Jaena for not finishing his medical studies. Graciano replied, On the shoulders of slaves should not rest a doctor's cape. Rizal countermanded, The shoulders do not honor the doctor's cape, but the doctors cape honors the shoulders.He then moved to the field of journalism. Losing interest in politics and academic life, he soon enjoyed his life in Barcelona and Madrid. However, his friends would forgive him these indiscretions due to his appeal with words and oratory. Mariano Ponce who was another of the Filipino propagandists in Spain observed, ... a deafening ovation followed the close of the peroration, the ladies waved their kerchiefs wildly, and the men applauded frantically as they stood up from their seats in order to embrace the speaker.";

Rajah Sulayman commissioned Panday Pira to cast the cannon that were mounted on the palisades surrounding his kingdom.

His revolt was fueled by grievances stemming from Spanish taxation and abuses, and by his belief in self-government, that the administration and leadership of the Roman Catholic Church and government in the Ilocos be invested in trained Ilocano officials.Born in Aringay, Pangasinan (an area in present-day Caba or Aringay, La Union), Silang's mother was Ilocano; his father was Pangasinense. Young Diego worked as a messenger for a local Castilian priest in Vigan, Ilocos Sur. Bright, passionate, and fluent in Spanish, he ferried correspondence from the Ilocos to Manila; journeys that gave him his first glimpse of colonial injustice and that planted the seed of rebellion.pain allied with France during the Seven Years' War, in opposition to Great Britain. The British in response sought to diminish the Spanish Empire. The seizure of Manila by British naval forces in October, 1762, and the subsequent surrender of the Spanish Philippines to Britain during the British occupation of the Philippines, inspired uprisings in the farthest north of Ilocos Norte and Cagayan, where anti-Spanish sentiments festered. Though Silang initially wanted to replace Spanish functionaries in the Ilocos with native-born officials and volunteered to head Ilocano forces against the British, desperate Spanish administrators instead transferred their powers to the Catholic Bishop of Nueva Segovia (Vigan), who rejected Silang's offer. Silang's group attacked the city and imprisoned its priests. He then began an association with the British who appointed him governor of the Ilocos on their behalf and promised him military reinforcement. The British force never materialized.Diego Silang was killed by one of his friends, a Spanish-Ilocano mestizo named Miguel Vicos, whom church authorities paid to assassinate Silang with the help of Pedro Becbec. He was 32 years old.After Silang's death, his Spanish-Ilocana mestiza wife, Josefa Gabriela, took command of the revolt and fought courageously. The Spanish sent a strong force against her. She was forced to retreat to Abra. Gabriela led her troops towards Vigan but was driven back. She fled again to Abra, where she was captured.

The people of Abra do claim she was born in what is now Pidigan, Abra (those two places are not far from each other, and Abra was not incorporated as a province until early in the 20th century). She was adopted by a very wealthy businessman Tomás Millan, who later married her at the age of 20, but died after three years. In 1757, she re-married again, this time to 27-year-old Ilocano insurgent leader, Diego Silang. The groups’ goal was to ensure an independent Ilocos. She became one of his closest advisors, whenever the troops battle, Gabriela always went with them to give support and help with the battle, a major figure in her husband's collaboration with the British and the brief expulsion of Spanish officials from Vigan, Ilocos Sur during the British occupation of the Philippines.On May 28, 1763, two of her husband’s close friends Miguel Vicos and Pedro Becbec betrayed them, which resulted to Diego’s demise; he was assassinated by order of royal and church authorities in Manila.

Put the entire switch statement in a while loop saying:

while(choice != 4)

That way, the switch menu will keep repeating itself til the user enters 4, also add an extra option in your menu called exit. It should then look like this:

cout<<"\t\t\t\tPhilippine National Heroes\n\n";
cout<<"[1]Dr.Jose Rizal\n";
cout<<"[2]Andres Bonifacio\n";
cout<<"[3]General Gregorio Del Pilar\n";
cout<<"[4]Exit\n";

And of course your switch will be inside the while loop.

Where do I put the while loop?
I'm sorry, I'm really new in Programming.

Oh! I didn't know you had so many people, I thought it just went til 3. then do it like this, instead of using the number 4 to end your loop, use -999, while(choice != -999). But make sure you specify this number in your menu, like:

case -999: cout << "Exit";

Put the switch inside the while, like this:

while(choice != -999)
      {
           switch(choice)
           {
                etc...
           }
      }

I see you have a while loop here already, wrap everything after the while loop with { }. It should be like this, notice that i start looping only from the "Enter choice" line so the screen would not get flooded everytime i make a choice, but you can start the loop a bit higher if you want to see all of the choices again, heres the code :

While studying at St. Vincent Ferrer Seminary in Jaro, López Jaena served as a secretary to an uncle named Claudio López who was the honorary vice consul of Portugal in Iloilo. His ambition of becoming a physician, convinced his parents that this was the better course of action. López Jaena sought enrollment at the University of Santo Tomas but was denied admission because the required Bachelor of Arts degree was not offered at the seminary in Jaro. However he was appointed to the San Juan de Dios Hospital as an apprentice. Unfortunately, due to financial problems, his parents could not afford to keep him in Manila. He returned to Iloilo and practiced medicine in communities.During this period, his visits with the poor and the common people began to stir feelings about the injustices that were common. At the age of 18 he wrote the satirical story Fray Botod which depicted a fat and lecherous priest. Botod’s false piety always had the Virgin and God on his lips no matter how unjust and underhanded his acts are.This naturally incurred the fury of the friars who knew that the story depicted them. Although it was not published a copy circulated in the region but the Friars could not prove that López Jaena was the author. However he got into trouble for refusing to testify that certain prisoners died of natural causes when it was obvious that they had died at the hands of the mayor of Pototan. López Jaena continued to agitate for justice and finally went to Spain when threats were made on his life.López Jaena sailed for Spain in 1879. There he was to become a leading literary and oratorical spokesman for the Philippine reformal issues. Philippine historians regard López Jaena, along with Marcelo H. del Pilar and José P. Rizal, as the triumvirate of Filipino propagandists.

Once Rizal approached Lopéz Jaena for not finishing his medical studies. Graciano replied, On the shoulders of slaves should not rest a doctor's cape. Rizal countermanded, The shoulders do not honor the doctor's cape, but the doctors cape honors the shoulders.He then moved to the field of journalism. Losing interest in politics and academic life, he soon enjoyed his life in Barcelona and Madrid. However, his friends would forgive him these indiscretions due to his appeal with words and oratory.

Young Diego worked as a messenger for a local Castilian priest in Vigan, Ilocos Sur. Bright, passionate, and fluent in Spanish, he ferried correspondence from the Ilocos to Manila; journeys that gave him his first glimpse of colonial injustice and that planted the seed of rebellion.pain allied with France during the Seven Years' War, in opposition to Great Britain. The British in response sought to diminish the Spanish Empire. The seizure of Manila by British naval forces in October, 1762, and the subsequent surrender of the Spanish Philippines to Britain during the British occupation of the Philippines, inspired uprisings in the farthest north of Ilocos Norte and Cagayan, where anti-Spanish sentiments festered. Though Silang initially wanted to replace Spanish functionaries in the Ilocos with native-born officials and volunteered to head Ilocano forces against the British, desperate Spanish administrators instead transferred their powers to the Catholic Bishop of Nueva Segovia (Vigan), who rejected Silang's offer. Silang's group attacked the city and imprisoned its priests. He then began an association with the British who appointed him governor of the Ilocos on their behalf and promised him military reinforcement. The British force never materialized.Diego Silang was killed by one of his friends, a Spanish-Ilocano mestizo named Miguel Vicos, whom church authorities paid to assassinate Silang with the help of Pedro Becbec. He was 32 years old.After Silang's death, his Spanish-Ilocana mestiza wife, Josefa Gabriela, took command of the revolt and fought courageously. The Spanish sent a strong force against her.

The people of Abra do claim she was born in what is now Pidigan, Abra (those two places are not far from each other, and Abra was not incorporated as a province until early in the 20th century). She was adopted by a very wealthy businessman Tomás Millan, who later married her at the age of 20, but died after three years.

She became one of his closest advisors, whenever the troops battle, Gabriela always went with them to give support and help with the battle, a major figure in her husband's collaboration with the British and the brief expulsion of Spanish officials from Vigan, Ilocos Sur during the British occupation of the Philippines.On May 28, 1763, two of her husband’s close friends Miguel Vicos and Pedro Becbec betrayed them, which resulted to Diego’s demise; he was assassinated by order of royal and church authorities in Manila. After her husband's death, she fled on horseback to her uncle Nicolás Cariño's residence in the mountains of Abra.Together with Cariño, and Sebatian Andaya and Manuel Flores, there she regrouped her troops, and rallied the Tingguian community to fight.

1) while (true) is a terrible solution as you have no way to exit.

2) This is a perfect project to start learning how to read files. Each name and his information can go into a text file and you can
a) read the data from the file
b) populate a string array of names to output in a loop for the menu
c) populate a string array of information that can be output for the chosen name.

That way you can write the code generically, and the file is all that needs to change when you want to update information. As it is, the code is so larger it's cumbersome, and if you need to make a change to some data, you must recompile the whole thing.

Bad idea. It's not portable. It calls the O/S unnecessarily.

How do you mean not portable?

It will not work on most operating systems. Linux/Unix for one. how do you know it will work on his O/S? He didn't tell you what he's using.

And if you have an O/S that has defined clear to be delete all files, you've just destroyed a lot of work.

I'm really sorry guys if I am consuming your time. :(

I actually made a mistake, I meant to say system("cls"), this is for windows as i assumed he is using that, system("clear") on the other hand is for Linux and it always works. And I'm not sure what you mean by it will delete all the files.

If you are gonna use [0] as your exit then you shouldn't use -999 in your loop, it's one or the other

No, it will work on either Windows or Linux, not both. And how many O/S's are there? Can you be absolutely certain clear doesn't delete files on every one of them?

We've already explained quite a few methods for you, I don't see what is still required

No, it will work on either Windows or Linux, not both. And how many O/S's are there? Can you be absolutely certain clear doesn't delete files on every one of them?

I'm not saying that system("clear") or system("cls") will each work on both O/S, I'm saying the one works for Linux and the other for Windows. And I'm too sure about the whole delete story but I always use system("clear")

We've already explained quite a few methods for you, I don't see what is still required

So i'll just disregard the while(true) and put system("CLS") after one another?

I made it true just to show you how it is done, i thought you would change it. Anyways, heres another way, i added one more option to terminate the program, if you enter 43 the program will end and i modified it a bit, but you can easily change it to your own liking:

While studying at St. Vincent Ferrer Seminary in Jaro, López Jaena served as a secretary to an uncle named Claudio López who was the honorary vice consul of Portugal in Iloilo. His ambition of becoming a physician, convinced his parents that this was the better course of action. López Jaena sought enrollment at the University of Santo Tomas but was denied admission because the required Bachelor of Arts degree was not offered at the seminary in Jaro. However he was appointed to the San Juan de Dios Hospital as an apprentice. Unfortunately, due to financial problems, his parents could not afford to keep him in Manila. He returned to Iloilo and practiced medicine in communities.During this period, his visits with the poor and the common people began to stir feelings about the injustices that were common. At the age of 18 he wrote the satirical story Fray Botod which depicted a fat and lecherous priest. Botod’s false piety always had the Virgin and God on his lips no matter how unjust and underhanded his acts are.This naturally incurred the fury of the friars who knew that the story depicted them. Although it was not published a copy circulated in the region but the Friars could not prove that López Jaena was the author. However he got into trouble for refusing to testify that certain prisoners died of natural causes when it was obvious that they had died at the hands of the mayor of Pototan. López Jaena continued to agitate for justice and finally went to Spain when threats were made on his life.López Jaena sailed for Spain in 1879. There he was to become a leading literary and oratorical spokesman for the Philippine reformal issues. Philippine historians regard López Jaena, along with Marcelo H. del Pilar and José P. Rizal, as the triumvirate of Filipino propagandists. Of these three Ilustrados, López Jaena was the first to arrive and may have founded the genesis of the Propaganda movement.López Jaena pursued his medical studies at the University of Valencia but did not finish the course. Once Rizal approached Lopéz Jaena for not finishing his medical studies. Graciano replied, On the shoulders of slaves should not rest a doctor's cape. Rizal countermanded, The shoulders do not honor the doctor's cape, but the doctors cape honors the shoulders.He then moved to the field of journalism. Losing interest in politics and academic life, he soon enjoyed his life in Barcelona and Madrid. However, his friends would forgive him these indiscretions due to his appeal with words and oratory.

Rajah Sulayman commissioned Panday Pira to cast the cannon that were mounted on the palisades surrounding his kingdom.

Young Diego worked as a messenger for a local Castilian priest in Vigan, Ilocos Sur. Bright, passionate, and fluent in Spanish, he ferried correspondence from the Ilocos to Manila; journeys that gave him his first glimpse of colonial injustice and that planted the seed of rebellion.pain allied with France during the Seven Years' War, in opposition to Great Britain. The British in response sought to diminish the Spanish Empire. The seizure of Manila by British naval forces in October, 1762, and the subsequent surrender of the Spanish Philippines to Britain during the British occupation of the Philippines, inspired uprisings in the farthest north of Ilocos Norte and Cagayan, where anti-Spanish sentiments festered. Though Silang initially wanted to replace Spanish functionaries in the Ilocos with native-born officials and volunteered to head Ilocano forces against the British, desperate Spanish administrators instead transferred their powers to the Catholic Bishop of Nueva Segovia (Vigan), who rejected Silang's offer. Silang's group attacked the city and imprisoned its priests. He then began an association with the British who appointed him governor of the Ilocos on their behalf and promised him military reinforcement. The British force never materialized.Diego Silang was killed by one of his friends, a Spanish-Ilocano mestizo named Miguel Vicos, whom church authorities paid to assassinate Silang with the help of Pedro Becbec. He was 32 years old.After Silang's death, his Spanish-Ilocana mestiza wife, Josefa Gabriela, took command of the revolt and fought courageously. The Spanish sent a strong force against her.

The people of Abra do claim she was born in what is now Pidigan, Abra (those two places are not far from each other, and Abra was not incorporated as a province until early in the 20th century).

So i'll just disregard the while(true) and put system("CLS") after one another?

After everything said about system("CLS") ? Get real!

Thank you Nuclear! That's it! You nailed it! :)
wow, it's really simple, but I didnt get it at the first place!

Of course he nailed it. We ALL could have, be we were trying to help you figure it out. Not give the answer, like Nuclear. Way to go, N :confused:

The problem is, his solution is not very well designed.
1) Adding 43. 0 would be better. With 43 you have to recode if you add a person.
2) A do-while when you accept the value at the top and still have to run through the loop to get to the bottom. A normal while would be more obvious.

Also, see this about using getch() . You should change to something portable and inherently C++, not a C add-on.
