    Exclamation Code Problem!!

    What's the prolem in my code :

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <windows.h>
        int Tic[3][3];
    void ClearBoard(void)
    {
        Tic[0][0] = 0;
        Tic[0][1] = 0;
        Tic[0][2] = 0;
        Tic[1][0] = 0;
        Tic[1][1] = 0;
        Tic[1][2] = 0;
        Tic[2][0] = 0;
        Tic[2][1] = 0;
        Tic[2][2] = 0;
    }
    void ShowBoard(void)
    {
        cout << Tic[0][0] << Tic[0][1] << Tic[0][2] << endl;
        cout << Tic[1][0] << Tic[1][1] << Tic[1][2] << endl;
        cout << Tic[2][0] << Tic[2][1] << Tic[2][2] << "\n\n\n";
    }
    void StartGame(void)
    {
        char name1[50];
        char name2[50];
        cout << "\n\nStarting A New Game!" << endl;
        cout << "Player1, please input your name: ";
        cin >> name1;
        cout << "Player2, please input your name: ";
        cin >> name2;
        cout << "\nStarting battle: " << name1 << " vs. " << name2 << endl;
        ClearBoard();
        ShowBoard();
        int i;
        i = 0;
        int col;
        int row;

            ShowBoard();
        }while(x != 0);
    }
    
    int main()
    {
        cout << "Welcome To Tic Tac Toe !" << endl;
        cout << "Menu:\n\n";

        cout << "Your choice: ";
        int choice;
        cin << choice;
        switch(choice)
        {
            case 1: StartGame();
                    break;
            case 2: 
                    cout << "Thanks For Playing Tic Tac Toe!" << endl;
                    cout << "Programmed By Dark-Dragon (ruski2003@hotmail.com)" << endl;
                    system("pause");

    You didn't say what was wrong

    But at a guess, it doesn't compile

    Perhaps
    cin << choice;

    Should be
    cin >> choice;

    (LOL) Hahaha! What a nice problem Your code works fine except for that "cin << choice;" part. It's amazing how one stupid line can mess up a finely written code... happens to me sometimes too.

    Talking Yea.. LOL

    Yup, that's it. Now, how can you create like windows applications in Dev-C++? I mean i checked out the API but it's too difficult, Isnt Borland Easier? All the controls in the toolbox? Just Drag and Drop?
    Thanks

    Programming Windows GUI's in C/C++ isn't easy. There's already a de facto standard for Windows API in C++. It isn't the same for all compiler vendors, but they are very similar in methodology.

    PHP Code:
    For Borlandint pascal WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstHINSTANCE
                                                       prev
    LPSTR cmdLineint Show)
                        {
                        }

    For 
    Microsoftint WINAPI WinMain(/*sOMETHING SIMILAR*/)
                          {
                          } 
    I have a hard time soaking up Windows API too

    C++ GUI isnt tough when it comes to using Borland C++ 5.0, Because I had the Enterprise Edition and all you have to do is just drag and drop a control on your form, double click it and write in the code. As simple as that. Why doesnt Dev-C++ have that? Why do i need to use WinApi to create a simple window?
    Thanks

    try this, slightly more maintainable.

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <windows.h>
    
    const short REELS=3, SYMBOLS=3;
    
    void ClearBoard(int [REELS][SYMBOLS]);
    void ShowBoard(int [REELS][SYMBOLS]);
    void StartGame(int [REELS][SYMBOLS]);
    
    
    int main()
    {
        int Tic[3][3];
    
        cout << "Welcome To Tic Tac Toe !" << endl;
        cout << "Menu:\n\n";
        cout << "1. Start New Tic Tac Toe Game" << endl;
        cout << "2. Exit Tic Tac Toe" << endl << endl;
        cout << "Your choice: ";
        int choice;
        cin >> choice;
        switch(choice)
        {
            case 1: StartGame(Tic);
                    break;
            case 2:
                    cout << "Thanks For Playing Tic Tac Toe!" << endl;
                    cout << "Programmed By Dark-Dragon (ruski2003@hotmail.com)" << endl;
                    system("pause");
                    break;
            default:
                    cout << "Error Input! Quitting...";
                    system("cls");
                    system("pause");
    
        }
        return 0;
    }
    
    void ClearBoard(int Tic[REELS][SYMBOLS])
    {
      for(int i=0; i < REELS; i++)
        for(int j=0; j < SYMBOLS; j++)
          Tic[i][j]=0;
    }
    void ShowBoard(int Tic[REELS][SYMBOLS])
    {
        cout << Tic[0][0] << Tic[0][1] << Tic[0][2] << endl;
        cout << Tic[1][0] << Tic[1][1] << Tic[1][2] << endl;
        cout << Tic[2][0] << Tic[2][1] << Tic[2][2] << "\n\n\n";
    }
    void StartGame(int Tic[REELS][SYMBOLS])
    {
        char name1[50];
        char name2[50];
        cout << "\n\nStarting A New Game!" << endl;
        cout << "Player1, please input your name: ";
        cin >> name1;
        cout << "Player2, please input your name: ";
        cin >> name2;
        cout << "\nStarting battle: " << name1 << " vs. " << name2 << endl;
        ClearBoard(Tic);
        ShowBoard(Tic);
        int i=0, col, row, x;
        do
        {
            cout << "Turn: " << name1 << endl;
            cout << name1 << ", please input your move: ";
            cin >> col;
            cin >> row;
            Tic[col-1][row-1] = 1;
            ShowBoard(Tic);
            cout << "Turn: " << name2 << endl;
            cout << name2 << ", please input your move: ";
            cin >> col;
            cin >> row;
            Tic[col-1][row-1] = 1;
        }while(x != 0);
    }

    Haven't used Borland, but your use of the word "form" and drag and drop seems more like Visual Basic, or, coming from Borland, Delphi, not C++. All are used to develop Windows applications, and have some coding similarities, but I've never seen/heard of drag and drop C++ IDEs.
    But, could be wrong.
    VB and Delphi (from the little I know of it, have to learn it for a new job) are both RAD tools to quickly develop apps. C/C++ are generally used for more advanced/bigger apps, and give much more control to the programmer, at the expense of more work for the programmer.
    VB is ultimately based on c/c++ (I think), while Delphi is based on Pascal (I know).
    [Edit]
    Actually, MSVC does have some drag and drop capabilities, I just haven't used them, so maybe Borland does too. There's still lots more coding involved, though. The word "form" does seem like VB or Delphi, though[/Edit]

    Also, when you start a new Windows app, you get a free window in Dev C++! Now you just have to code things in it, and the only way to do that is *GASP* learn the Windows API. I never got around it myself either.
    Typing stuff in Code::Blocks 8.02, compiling stuff with MinGW 3.4.5.

    howdy,
    i use Borland C++ Builder 5, it IS C++ it however uses OWL instead of MFC. i don't have a great deal of experience with it but i can asure you that the sorce code is real honest to goodness C++.

    M.R.
    I don't like you very much. Please post a lot less.
    Cheez
    *and then*
    No, I know you were joking. My point still stands.

    Yea, I used the trial verson of Borland C++ Builder and also tought it's good, but when I discovered that it ends in 60 days of use, I just dropped it and Never want to see it again, so I chose Dev-C++. I know that to make the windows, controls, etc you have to use WindowsAPI and I've got a good tutorial website bout that, but it's kinda bit difficult to understand and memorize all that code.. for one simple window ... 50 lines of code that's no fun ... But I asked some people on IRC and they told me that I'll get used to that just like they did, so i think I'll be fine.
    Thanks

    visual c++ is a great compiler for doing such things, all u need to make a window(form maybe used) is one click!!!!!! drag and drop abilities r available to establish GUI easilly .
    unforunatly its expensive for many people
    thats the only disadvantage about VC++ as I think, but all of us know its all about microsoft(the money hummy)
    Programming is a high logical enjoyable art for both programer and user !!
