    Alignment Issues.....

    I wish to make a program that gives computations for a water bill for various respective companies.

    The programs runs fine, I just want to format it to where my outputs are right justified to make it look nicer.

    code:
    Code:
    #include <iostream>#include <iomanip>
    #include <string>
    
    
    using namespace std;
    
    
        int main()
    {
        char name [256];
        char type;
        double gallons;
        double base;
        double fee;
        
        cout << "Please Name/Title: " << endl;
            cin.getline(name, 256);
    
    
        cout << "Please insert customer type: \n (R= Resident) \n (B= Business) \n (G= Govt.) \n (N= NonProfit): " << endl;
            cin >> type;
        
        cout << "Please enter number of gallons used: " << endl;
            cin >> gallons;
    
    
        cout << fixed << right << setprecision(2) << showpoint;
        cin.setf(ios::right);
    
    
        cout << name << endl;
    
    
        cout << "Gallons Used: " << setw(10) << setfill('.') << "  " << right << gallons << endl;
    
    
        switch (type)
        {
      case 'R':
        base = 15.00;
            if (gallons > 1000)
            {
                    fee = (gallons - 1000) * .02;
            }
        break;
      case 'B':
        base = 25.00;
            if (gallons > 2000)
            {
                    fee = (gallons - 2000) * .03;
            }
        break;
      case 'G':
        base = 5.00;
            if (gallons > 500)
            {
                    fee = (gallons - 500 ) * .01;
            }
        break;
    
    
        case 'N':
        base = 5.00;
            if (gallons > 500)
            {
                    fee = (gallons - 500 ) * .01;
            }
        break;
    
    
        case 'r':
        base = 15.00;
            if (gallons > 1000)
            {
                    fee = (gallons - 1000) * .02;
            }
        break;
        case 'b':
        base = 25.00;
            if (gallons > 2000)
            {
                    fee = (gallons - 2000) * .03;
            }
        break;
        case 'g':
        base = 5.00;
            if (gallons > 500)
            {
                    fee = (gallons - 500 ) * .01;
            }
        break;
    
    
        case 'n':
        base = 5.00;
            if (gallons > 500)
            {
                    fee = (gallons - 500 ) * .01;
            }
        break;
    }
    
    
        cout << "Water base fee: "  << setfill('.')  << setw(8)  << "$ " << right << base << endl;
    
    
        cout << "Water usage fee: " << setfill('.') << setw(7)  << "$ "  << right << fee <<endl;
    
    
        cout << "Sewage base fee: " << setfill('.') << setw(7)  << "$ "  << right << base << endl;
    
    
        cout << "Sewage usage fee: " << setfill('.') << setw(6) << "$ "  << right << fee * .8 << endl;
    
    
        cout << "Total due: " << setfill('.') << setw(13)  << "$ " << right << (base * 2) + fee + (fee * .8) << endl;
        
        cin.get();
        cin.get();
        
    return 0;
    }
    i would like the output to show as so:

    Gallons used ................ 100000
    Water base fee ..............$ 5.00
    Water usage fee .........$ 995.00
    Sewage base fee ............$ 5.00
    Sewage usage fee .......$ 796.00
    Total due .................$ 1801.00

    (aligned, of course)

    any help would be appreciated
    -Apo-S

    Read through How to format output C++ - FAQ. Looks like you know of the iomanip library, just maybe not all the members? Additionally, unless required by your assignment, you should be using std::string instead of C style char arrays. Also, you should indent your code properly.
