I have tried everything with this problem and I cannot get it to work. My program complies and I get no errors but it is not catching my exceptions. The exception is that no grade should be less than zero or more than 100. I can find the average and load all the test scores into my array but the program is not catching the exceptions. Thanks for your help in advance.


TestScores header

#ifndef TEST_SCORES_H
#define TEST_SCORES_H
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

class TestScores
{
private:
	int numScores;  // Number of scores
	int *scores;    // Pointer to array of scores

public:
	
	// Default constructor
	TestScores()
		{ numScores = 0; scores = NULL; }

	// Constructor
	TestScores(int scoreArray[], int size);
	
	// getAverage function
	double getAverage() const;
};

#endif

NegativeScore header

#ifndef NEGATIVE_SCORE_H
#define NEGATIVE_SCORE_H
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

class NegativeScore
		{
		private:
			double value;
		public:
			

			NegativeScore(double val)
			{value = val;}

			double getValue() const
			{return value;}
		};
#endif

You need to actually instantiate a TestScores object using the non-default c'tor, which is the only place you actually throw the exception in question.
