Talking Lab 2 - 07-27-2015, 10:11 PM

I just completed a lab where I had to create a character that would ask you for a random number and then he would jump up and spin that many times in the air. We were supposed to use loops but I accidently found a way to accomplish the same thing without using a loop. Basically I created a pop-up that asks the user to click either 'Yes' or 'No'. If 'Yes' the program will start over, if 'No' it will end.

Hope I get credit for being innovative!

I ended up doing the same thing because I kept getting stuck in infinite loops when trying to get the user to enter yes, YES, or Yes. I spent too many hours trying to figure this out I finally gave up.

You can just use a while loop with the condition to continue be set to yes.

Question Lab2 - 03-10-2016, 04:45 PM

Mann! This one was kind of difficult, well at least it was to me. I got the jump and spin part down without a problem even though I am sure it could've been done smoother. When it came to the looping the jump and spin method on the answer of yes, Yes, or YES was like . I couldn't ask the user the proper question and the jump/spin method would loop no matter what the user type for their answer. Finally with the help of my professor I was able to get the program to come together hopefully good enough for the extra credit.
