This is a simple Rectangle calculator that uses classes.
Ok, so I keep getting errors like.

Error 1 error C2660: 'rectangle::getLength' : function does not take 0 arguments
Error 2 error C2660: 'rectangle::getWidth' : function does not take 0 arguments
Error 3 error C2660: 'rectangle::getLength' : function does not take 0 arguments
Error 4 error C2660: 'rectangle::getWidth' : function does not take 0 arguments
Error 5 error C2660: 'rectangle::getLength' : function does not take 0 arguments
Error 6 error C2660: 'rectangle::setLength' : function does not take 0 arguments
Error 7 error C2660: 'rectangle::getWidth' : function does not take 0 arguments
Error 8 error C2660: 'rectangle::setWidth' : function does not take 0 arguments
Error 9 error C2660: 'rectangle::calcPerimeter' : function does not take 0 arguments
Error 10 error C2660: 'rectangle::calcArea' : function does not take 0 arguments

What am I not doing?

class.cpp

#include <iostream>
#include "class.h"

using namespace std;

int main()
{

cout << "Welcome to the Rectangle Calculator" << endl;
cout << "You can calculate the Perimeter and Area" << endl;

rectangle Rectangle;        //instantiate the Rectangle

Rectangle.getLength();
Rectangle.setLength();
Rectangle.getWidth();
Rectangle.setWidth();

Rectangle.calcPerimeter();
Rectangle.calcArea();


return 0;
}

class.h

#ifndef CLASS_H

class rectangle

Yuo should run throught tutorial. You should know the diffrence from set and get. For example

float getLength(float)
    {
        float Len;
        cout << "Enter the length: ";
        cin >> Len;
        cout << endl;
        return Len;
    }

you need

float getLength(void)
    {
        
        return length;
    }

For set func

void setLength(float someLen)
{
   length = someLen;
}

The constructor is wrong also you cant assign values to types.

rectangle(float=1.0, float=1.0);

instead

rectangle(float Len, float Width)
{
   length = Len;
   width = Width;
}

i believe you can set the data type to zero in this instance, unless my book is wrong...

they have..


class Time {
public:
Time(int = 0, int = 0, int = 0); //default constructor
private:
int hour;
int minute;
int second;
};


//i am also not using a get or set function from a library... this is just my variable name

Hm never seen that (probably becouse I'm not c++ programmer). But the book never lies. Make a test just leave the construtor and what will the copiler tell U

also.. i have changed the class.h and now receive only 2 errors

does anyone have any suggestions?

Change the constructor to

rectangle()
    {
      length = 1;
      width = 1;
    }            //constructor sets length and width defaults to 1

or

rectangle():length(1), width(1) {}

Compile and run
