    need help with menu program and header files

    Hi there folks,

    This is my very first time here, and I hope that everyone is cool around here.

    Anyho, I'm here looking for some assistance. I created a menu program, and I need help on incorporating header files and two additional C++ files onto my menu program. If anyone here know anything about menu program and header files, and willing to help me out here, just email me to this address:

    Dragon_316ca@yahoo.ca


    I decided not to post the entire codes in this message board just yet.

    And does this site offers some sort of private messaging??

    thanks,
    D

    You're gonna want to incorperate it all into a project and compile that. As for headers, do you know how to #include your own headers in a program?

    For headers, you would do something similar, but .cpp files, no.

    SlyMaelstrom, do you want to help me out via email? I want to send you some attachment that I'd worked on so far.............. then I could explain what I want to do with my program.

    Click on my name and send me a private message. I'd rather not do it by email. Also, you can feel free to post your .cpp files as an attachment. Infact, I'd encourage that as there are many other people on this forum that can help you better than I can.

    When I clicked your name, the site wouldn't allow me to PM you. Maybe because i just registered here like 40 minutes ago. lol

    Then post your attachments here. It's an option at the bottom when you post a reply.

    Hi folks.
    Sorry for the delay.

    I decided to post the codes here. Here's my "bank" menu program. The first 4 options are simple, but the last 2 options I need help with. The last 2 options are affected with the header files and the additonal .cpp files that I created, and i'm not too good at implementing these files with my menu program because I never work with them before. So, if anyone here could help me make my program seems functional, and working, that would be great.


    thanks,
    DFC

    Menu Program:

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <fstream>
    #include <string>
    #include "Account.h"
    #include "Bank.h"
    using namespace std;
    
    Bank myBank("David", "Bank for the local");
    //function prototypes
    int menu();
    void printRegister();
    void printTransaction();
    void printList();
    void printInterest();
    void printAddCustomer();
    void printFindCustomer();
    //
    //
    //Add Breakpoint to line 34
    int main()
    {
    	int choice = -1;
    	char dummy;
    	while (choice != 0)
    	{
    		choice = menu();
    
    		switch (choice)
    		{
    		case 1:
    			printRegister();
    //			cout << "choice 1 selected. press any key to continue" << endl;
    			cin >> dummy;
    			break;
    
    		case 2:
    			printTransaction();
    //			cout << "choice 2 selected. press any key to continue" << endl;
    			cin >> dummy;
    			break;
    
    		case 3:
    			printList();
    			cin >> dummy;
    			break;
    
    		case 4:
                printInterest();
    //			cout << "choice 4 selected. press any key to continue" << endl;
    			cin >> dummy;
    			break;
    
    		case 5:
    			printAddCustomer();
    			cin >> dummy;
    			break;
    
    		case 6:
    			printFindCustomer();
    			cin >> dummy;
    			break;

    I'd like to add that I said via PM he could bump this (or start a new post) because I didn't have time to look at the code for him.
