    Got a project. No help, confused on how to do this.

    I have a project that I have to get done by next Monday, and I am a novice in programming, and am confused on how to do this. Here is the exact project

    For this assignment, you will create an application that contains a collection of rooms. You will be able to move around to and from these rooms by typing in 'north', 'south', 'east', or 'west'.

    In your Program.cs file, you will have an array of Room objects, and you will have an index that represents the current room. You will have a run loop which will collect input from the player. It will then send this input to the Room object in the list refered to by the current room, and it will give you a new room index that represents the room index in that particular direction. You will then set the new room index as the current room index, and print out the current room. You will also have to initialize at least 6 Room objects in the list.

    You also must create a Room class. This room class will have 6 fields. Two strings to represent the room name and description, and then four integers, each the index of the room in a direction. It will have a constructor that takes arguments for all 6 variables, and then copys the values into its own fields. It will also have a method that takes a text input from the player. Based on this input, the method will return the index it has stored for the indicated direction. The Room class will also have an override for the ToString method, so that we can use it to print out the room. All it should do is attach the room name and description together in some form or another, and then return it.
    So far I have been ignoring my Program.cs file and been working on my RoomClass.cs file. I am using Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Express Edition. So far my entire code is

    You are confused, you didn't even put this in the right forum.

    And I'm guessing -- based on your "code" -- that if this is your midterm, someone's not been going to class! Tsk, tsk!

    Right. It looks like C# to my untrained eye, so I will be moving this there.

    ok, sorry about that, I thought i put it in the right area.

    And It is part of a midterm class... But the teacher is letting us get help from anywhere (but him) as long as we do not copy the code exactly.

    Ah the joys of trying to explain the answer is in the question...

    "create a Room class. This room class will have 6 fields. Two strings to represent the room name and description, and then four integers, each the index of the room in a direction."

    Break this down:

    Create a class called Room. Give it six fields, two strings and four integers. The names could be gibberish for all anyone cares, well not really, but you get the gist.

    If you don't know this one: "It will have a constructor that takes arguments for all 6 variables" quit the course now, lol.

    Break the question down in to component steps. I have highlighted a couple to kick you butt to get you going. Quite often you have to work backwards to work the whole thing out (I tend to anyway, and others on my degree also found the same thing).

    Go through as many individual items creating them without truly depending on another, then work them together and add the bits in that you can't understand from the code. If you get stuck, take a step back and visualise what the lecturer wants you to achieve: A game where you can move from one room to another.

    Your code is barely code. Really you need to work on it and add some application logic before you get some reply code back.
