What the heck is a class/struct/union!?
use resPtr instead of resObj..

Ok I changed all the 'resObj' to 'resPtr' however I am still getting the same output errors...

Resistor * resPtr[3]

should be declared globally..

the first error:
1>f:\ ... \resistormain.cpp(66): error C2660: 'EnterResistance' : function does not take 1 arguments


declared as: void EnterResistance(Resistor &, bool);
defined as: void EnterResistance(Resistor*)

fix that then move on to the next error.
Ok so here is a snippet of code that I modified...

So I know its something to do with the resPtr.ect... lines but not sure how to fix that. Can anyone help?

cout << "Bump" << endl; //;)
The dot operator doesn't work with pointers, so you need to use the -> operator to call the objects functions. Resobj doesn't exist anywhere not even in main, certainly not as a local variable in your function, as the compiler says.

However I think your code needs a bit of reorganising.

In the resitormain.cpp file you have all these functions to do with resistors - they should all be class functions which are called through the resistor object.

Also main always returns an int - not void.

Lines 141 to 244 would be much better written with switch statements.

Each case clause (Your else if) could call a function. Your else if blocks are all very similar, call a function that has the array & the length of it as parameters. This will avoid quite a bit of repetition in your code.


Lines 10 to 52 should be private member variables in the resistor class. Your member functions can get at them because they are in the same class.

When deleting dynamically created arrays - use the delete[] operator

HTH & good luck. :-D


Thank you guys for the help thus far... After all your help here is my complete Resistormain...

I'll probably go in there and clean up some of the code in there later but for now its compiling. Now I just need to figure out how to assign my own resistor.
