    If statement help...

    I need some help, with 'if statements'. I can't seem to find the right way to explain it...
    Like making my application do something if the input is between 2 numbers.
    Code:
    if (lvl > 31)(lvl < 71)
    {......
    ......}
    Sorry I couldnt explain very well... Thanks to anyone that can help.

    You are just leaving out the "and" operation.

    Think about your problem in plain English first:

    "I want to do something if lvl is greater than 31 and lvl is less than 71."

    Turning that into C++:

    Code:
    if ( (lvl > 31) && (lvl < 71) )
    {
    ....code....
    }
    Notice the only real difference is the "&&".

    In C++ "&&" means "and". You can use it in "if" statement to do these kind of things.

    I think you're looking for:

    Code:
    if (lvl > 31 && lvl < 71)
    {......
    ......}
    The "&&" means AND. So if they are both TRUE, the if statement is executed.
