Objective: Dealing with data in C++ Agenda: Notes Essay Help
DataTypes Boolean data Keyword: bool True or False Gender type: male or female
Data Types Character data type Keyward: char Individual Numbers (0-9), alphabet, symbols, tab, backspace, enter key Use apostrophe before and after characters: ‘z’
Data Types Integer data ( 0, + and - whole numbers Short, int or long We will usually use int 3.25 (decimal number) is a real number Float are 3.4 X to 3.4 X Double are from 1.7 x to 1.7 x
Data types String Collection of text “Hello World”
Variables Variables store information for the program To create a variable you declare it Usually the first thing done in an event-handler to store input etc. A variable declaration includes data type and mae of variable: int length; int height; int width;
Declaring variables If variables are of the same data type, you can declare them on one line: int height, width, length; More examples: bool female; char middle-initial; int age; float average; double gpa;
Variable Name Rules Must begin with a letter or underscore (_) Can only use letters, digits, or underscore Are case-sensitive DO NOT use a space Each variable name in a program must be unique Can’t use C++ keywords
Initializing Variables Put data into the variable for the first time after it is declared. All numeric variables are initialized to 0 by default Other types must be initialized Can declare and initialize bool female – false; char middle_initial = ‘S”; float average = 98.6; double gpa = 3.42;
More initializations int num1, num2 = 5; REMEMBER: any information put into a textbox is text. A number is still considered a string “20”
Converting text to numbers TryParse() Method int age; Int 32::TryParse(textbox1->Text, age); Int 32 is the type of data ::Scope resolution operator TryParse() Method to try to see is a string can be a number
Another TryParse Example double temperature; double::TryParse(textbox1->Text, temperature);
