Hello,

I need help!!! I have a program that uses an array for the user to enter in 5 integers. After those integers are added I want to sort them using a bubble sort. My problem is I'm really confused on where I place my bubble sort? Any help would be appreciated.Thank you!

 static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            string myName = "";
            int[] integers = new int[5];
            int Sum = 0;
            int temp;
            Console.WriteLine("What is your name?");
            myName = Console.ReadLine();

            for (int i = 0; i < integers.Length; i++)
            {
                while (Sum < 10 || Sum > 50)
                {    
                    Console.WriteLine("Please enter {0}  integers between 10 and 50"
                        , integers.Length - i);
                    Sum = Convert.ToInt32(Console.ReadLine());
                }
                integers[i] = Sum;
                Sum = 0;
            }               
                for (int i = 0; i < integers.Length; i++)          
            {    
                for (int pass = 1; pass <= integers.Length - 2; pass++)
                {
                    for (int j = 0; j <= integers.Length - 2; j++)
                    {
                        if (integers[j] > integers[j = 1])
                        {
                            temp = integers[j + 1];
                            integers[j + 1] = integers[j];
                            integers[j] = temp;
                        }
                    }
                }
                           }
            Console.WriteLine("Your name is {0}.", myName);

            Console.ReadKey();

Edited 2 Years Ago by aurgiwilllearn: changed code

Where you have it now (lines 21-34) is actually workable. The implementation has several problems with it as it stands, but you could leave it right where it is. However, that's not what you would usually do.

Has your instructor (or textbook) explained about writing separate methods other than Main() yet?

The usual solution to this is to write a bubblesort() method and pass the data to that. If you have covered methods already, then the solution is to write the bubblesort() method after the end of the Main() method, and call it in Main().

Just some side notes.
change this

while (Sum < 10 || Sum > 50)

to this

while (Sum > 10 || Sum < 50)

and in line 27 to this

if (integers[j] > integers[j + 1])

This should work

static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            string myName = "";
            int[] integers = new int[5];
            int Sum = 0;
            int temp;
            Console.WriteLine("What is your name?");
            myName = Console.ReadLine();
            for (int i = 0; i < integers.Length; i++)
            {
                while (Sum>10 || Sum<50)
                {    
                    Console.WriteLine("Please enter {0}  integers between 10 and 50"
                        , integers.Length - i);
                    Sum = Convert.ToInt32(Console.ReadLine());
                }
                integers[i] = Sum;
                Sum = 0;
            }               
                for (int i = 0; i < integers.Length; i++)          
            {    
                for (int pass = 1; pass <= integers.Length - 2; pass++)
                {
                    for (int j = 0; j <= integers.Length - 2; j++)
                    {
                        if (integers[j]>integers[j+1])
                        {
                            temp = integers[j + 1];
                            integers[j + 1] = integers[j];
                            integers[j] = temp;
                        }
                    }
                }
                           }
            Console.WriteLine("Your name is {0}.", myName);
            Console.ReadKey();
