    Question Problems W/Cin?

    Ok, I'm working on an NPC Library for future use and I've come across trouble. Here's the function code:

    Code:
    NPC::CLS_FIND()
    {
    	clsno=0;
    	while(clsno<1||clsno>3)
    	{	
    		system("cls");
    		cout << "How many classes?" << endl;
    		cin >> clsno;
    		cout << endl;
    		if(clsno<1||clsno>3)
    		{
    			cout << "Invalid Number of Classes!" << endl;
    			cout << "Must Be Between 1-3!" << endl;
    			getch();
    		}
    	}
    	lp=0;
    	while(lp!=clsno+1)
    	{
    		system("cls");
    		if(lp==1)
    		{
    			cout << "What is Class 1?" << endl;
    			cin >> cls1;
    		}
    		else if(lp==2)
    		{
    			cout << "What is Class 2?" << endl;
    			cin >> cls2;
    		}
    		else if(lp==3)
    		{
    			cout << "What is Class 3?" << endl;
    			cin >> cls3;
    		}
    		lp++;
    	}
    	return 0;
    }
    The execution stops after the second cin, why?

    try adding:

    Code:
    cin.ignore();
    after you get input.
