I was just wondering what the best way to create a loop for an input of a number 1-50 would be. I do not want to allow anything under or over that mark. I tried an if/else loop but it would only check it one time and on the second attempt if I put in a number outside of 1-50 it would accept it. Any tips? Thanks everyone.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
printf("Please enter a number 1-50: ");
scanf(" %d", &UserNum);
while (UserNum != 1-50);
A do-while loop is a good choice because you want the loop to execute at least once. But you can't use a range of numbers for the condition of the loop.
With what you have, add a Boolean flag before the do statement and set it to true. Then add a check of UserNum after your scanf. Set the flag to false if the number is in range. Your while statement would look like this if you named your flag bNotValid:
