You've got not too long ago a newborn, and best wishes have been in purchase! But now you're scratching to get out of your house, hit the actual piste or even embark on holiday. One of many most effective to handle your youngster and make your hands totally free is to apply a child provider. The following is the way to go shopping.=Due Dates=
*Saturday, November 28th: Version 0.1 (Initial working version)
*Tuesday, December 8th: Version 1.0 (Working version)

=File Names=
Save your work in separate files for each class, and name the files to the same name as the classes; each class should have a header file and a code file.
The first choice For example for a new baby can be an child companythe class [[#IO_Field | IO_Field]], create ''IO_Field.h'' and ''IO_Field. This is a easy, frameless load up which snuggles your child in entrance peoplecpp''. Many can The header file should hold a child the class declaration, and several child equipment to your complete fat up any other possible declaration related to 30 or Thirty weightthe class. Child service providers are generally beautifully handy with regard to around-town make use The "cpp" file should hold the definition (implementation) of along with flightsthe class, and its methods and possible functions.
Create a Make file to build your project with respect to dependencies of classes.
=SVN Quick Notes=
A kid provider usually features a framework and it is meant to have a more substantial kid powering anyone# Checkout the code $svn co svn://zenit.senecac. To train on a little one service'''XX'''/trunk/PRJ --username yourUserName <sup>Remember, '''XX''' is your SVN number after your section ('a kid have to be effective at sitting up with no help' etc. The tiniest kid right for a youngster provider is all about Sixteen pounds)</sup># Add selected ciol., which typically means a child about Half a dozen or 7 a few months outdatedh ciol. When doubtful concerning your kid's readiness, seek advice from your current doctor ahead of venturing cpp and if present the class files (all compiled) $svn add filename# Commit the new files $svn commit# Team members check out. The most important child appropriate in order to journey in the carrier is around 40 pounds., with some designs helping higher pounds to accommodate gear, alsoindividually # development starts.
=How to reuse your C code in C++ programs=
Include your already existing C code into your C++ code as follows:
<big><pre>extern "C"{
#include "ciol.h"

=Mandatory Classes=
As the first part of your project this semester, you are to create few classes to encapsulate [[OOP344 Assignment One|Console Input Output Library]]
Gear-storage ability'''IO_Field''' is the base class for all different types of Fields on a Form.<big><pre>class IO_Form;class IO_Field{private: int _row; int _col;protected: void* _data; IO_Form* _owner; int getOwnerTop(void)const; int getOwnerLeft(void)const; void displayOwner(void)const;public: IO_Field(int row, such as detachable diaper hand bags or perhaps day deliversint col, void* data = (void*)0); virtual void* data(void); virtual void display(void)const = 0; virtual int edit(void)= 0; virtual bool editable(void)const = 0; virtual void set(const void *) = 0; virtual void set(IO_Form* owner); int getRow(void)const; int getCol(void)const; virtual ~IO_Field(void);};
Much more flexibleness choices for a much better suit</pre></big>===Constructor===
Diaper-changing sleeping pad<big><pre>IO_Field(int row, int col, void* data = (void*)0);</pre></big>This constructor sets the corresponding attributes to the values of incoming arguments.
Hydration-system ===Protected Methods=======getOwnerTop and left (optional)====<big><pre> int getOwnerTop()const; int getOwnerLeft()const;</pre></big>These two methods return the top and left, coordinates of the frame of the form in which the field exists.They simply return zero, if there is no owner. This can help the display methods of a field to place the field at the correct, relative position according to the form they are displayed in. ====displayOwner() (optional)====<big><pre> void displayOwner()const;</pre></big>This method displays the owner of a field, if it is compatibleexists. This can help a Field to hide itself, by displaying the owner, without displaying itself.===Public Methods=======data()====<big><pre>virtual void* data();</pre></big>Returns the value of the data attribute.

Here '''_col''' attribute*if '''_owner''' is not NULL it returns the main factor sum of '''_col''' and '''_owner->getLeft();''' (see IO_Frame for your comfort and ease. When generating your current first alterations, use publications to be able to bodyweight those as opposed to your son or daughter.getLeft())
virtual ~IOField();
An empty destructor (the body of the method is blank)
===Pure Virtual Methods===
virtual void display() = 0;
virtual int edit()= 0;
virtual bool editable() = 0;
virtual void set(const void *) = 0;
These are pure virtual methods enforcing the creation of the identical methods in the derived classes. This make the IO_Field class an abstract class.
Note: The purpose of passing an IO_Form pointer to the Edit method, is to make the future Edit methods capable of sending a message (errors and help messages)to the Screen they are being Edited on.
Adjust the headgear technique to suit your torso'''IO_Frame''' class, in order that the hipbelt sets on the hip bone fragments (not really the waistline) along encapsulates a frame. It Draws a frame at left top corner of '''left''' and '''top''' with the tie sleep on the neckspecified '''width''' and '''height'''.
Tighten up your hipbelt consequently roughly 80% of the pounds A Frame can be in your hips.instantiated as follows:<big><pre>IO_Frame(int top, int left, int width, int height, const char* frameChars = (const char*)0);</pre></big>
Make tighter the tie so '''frameChars''' are characters used to draw the youngster company is actually sits firmly and the outstanding 20% possibly even of the fat is actually frame, characters in your shoulders.order are:# left side# left top corner# top side# top right corner# right side# right bottom corner# bottom side# bottom left corner
Alter the particular sternum band throughout your torso in order that it will not hinder your own breathing in.So to draw this:<big><pre> /--------\ | | | | | | \--------/</pre></big>
Fit the Child Provider to Your Childframe chars should be:<big><pre>"|/-\|/-\"</pre></big>
If however, the '''frameChars''' argument is missing (it is NULL) then a default, defined value in "io_def.h"; '''_FRAME_CHARS''' should be used.

Raising an entertained kid company is similar to hoisting much back pack (notice the pack-hoisting video with regard to recommendations)IO_Frame has a virtual destructor. The first few occasions you need to do therefore, have someone enable you to wear it your current back again. Your measures: Raise the child company by the prime manages, slip on the actual shoulder straps as well as buckle the particular hipbelt. When removing the carrier, undo the actual shoulder straps and unbuckle the particular hipbelt. Getting your take care of guiding your brain, carry your provider close to for a the front, along with grasp the second manage to help you collection the child carrier on the groundThis destructor does nothing.
'''[[#IO_Frame | IO_Frame]]''' is inherited into a container class called '''IO_Form'''. '''IO_Form''' organizes the '''[[#IO_Field | IO_Field]]''' classes and give the user a panel to use them sequentially.
A few more pointers:'''IO_Form''' should be able to hold unlimited number of '''[[#IO_Field | IO_Fields]]'''. (Use either a dynamic array, or linked list structure of '''[[#IO_Field | IO_Fields]]''' to implement this)<hr width="50%" />===Constructor===
'''IO_Form''' is constructed as follows:
IO_Form(bool framed = false,
int row = 0, int col = 0 , int width = 0 , int height = 0,
const char* frameChars = (const char*)0);
'''framed:''' if true, IO_Form will use its parent to draw a frame around itself when display()ed row, col, width and height are passed to the parent under following conditions:<br />If framed is true and "width or height" are 0 (zero) then the full size of the terminal is used for dimensions of the IO_Frame.

Do not leave your youngster unattended as he as well as she is in the little one provider.===Destructor===
Children usually get to sleep inside little one service providers<big><pre>virtual ~IO_Form(); sometimes look at child's placement and luxury.

(the rest will not effectively stable to be used like a chair, nor should they ever be put on raised floors say for example a regular, kitchen table or perhaps sleep.deallocated)
Avoid using a young child carrier when the framework or perhaps nails are usually harmed.<hr width="50%" />
Ensure your youngster is protected from your climate.===Private Methods===
Consider sporting ====Adding a hat Field to the Form====the '''IO_Form''' must be able to add several IO_Field classes to itself, one at a time and then provide the user, the means of editing them in order they were added.  <big><pre>int add(IO_Field* f, bool dynamic, bool submitter);</pre></big>'''IO_Form''' uses this private '''add''' method to provide means of adding fields through several public add methods. this method adds an '''[[#IO_Field | IO_Field]]''' to the end of the '''[[#IO_Field | IO_Fields]]''' in the IO_Form; *'''f''' : Is the address of the '''[[#IO_Field | IO_Field]]''' begin added to the '''IO_Form'''*'''dynamic''' : If set to true, it sets this '''[[#IO_Field | IO_Field]]''' to be deallocated by '''IO_Form''''s destructor at the end;*'''submitter''': If set to true, it tags this '''[[#IO_Field | IO_Field]]''' to terminate the '''IO_Form''''s edit() if ENTER_KEY is hit. see the edit() method for more info. '''add()''' also calls '''set(IO_Form* owner)''' of '''[[#IO_Field | IO_Field]]''' and passes its pointer ''(this)'' to it.

In addition to the attributes of its parent IO_Field, IO_Label has a private integer attribute called _len. _len is used to hold the length of Field in which the text is to be displayed.IO_Label holds its data dynamically and will never point to an external one. '''IO_Label''' can be created in two ways;<big><pre> IO_Label(int row, int col, int len);</pre></big>This constructor will create an empty (blank) IO_Label with capacity of len characters.In this case '''row''' and '''col''' are passed to the parent for initialization and '''_len''' (the attribute) is set to the incoming argument '''len'''.Then IO_Field::_data will be set to the address of a newly allocated memory to the size of '''_len + 1 ''' bytes which also will be set to an empty string.''Note that '''data''' is a void pointer; to use it here, you must cast it to a character pointer!''<br /><big><pre> IO_Label(const char* str, int row, int col, int len = -1);</pre></big>If '''len''' is greater than zero, This constructor will create an IO_Label by allocating len + 1 characters pointed by IO_Field::_data, and then the contents of '''str''' is copied into IO_Field::_data up to '''len''' characters. '''_len''' attribute is set to '''len''';If '''len''' is less than or equal to zero, then '''len''' will be set to the length of '''str''' and then constructor will work as previous case.Like the previous constructor it will pass '''row''' and '''col''' to its parent.===Public Methods===<big><pre>void display(void);</pre></big>'''Display()''' is a direct call to '''io_display()''' function printing '''_data''', at '''getRow()''' and '''getCol()''' up to '''_len''' characters. If '''_len''' is less than zero, then '''_data''' will be printed to the end.<big><pre> void set(const void* str);</pre></big>'''Set()''' will copy the content of '''str''' into '''IO_Field::_data''' up to '''_len''' characters, if '''_len''' is not negative.<big><pre>bool editable(void)const;</pre></big>'''Editable()''' returns false!.<big><pre> int edit(void);</pre></big>'''Edit()''', Calls '''Display()''' and returns '''0'''.

(make sure '''_data''' is casted to char* before deleting.<big><pre> IO_Label& operator=(const char* str);</pre></big>'''operator=()''', Calls '''set()''' and returns itself. ==IO_Edit== Inherit IO_Field and IO_Frame into a new class called IO_Edit. (Read: Practical Programming Techniques Using C++, pages 94 to 96, ''Multiple Inheritance'' topic)  IO_Edit, encapsulates the '''[[OOP344_Assignment_One#Line_and_Selection_Editor|io_edit()]]''' function of ciol library when isTextEditor is false. IO_Edit calls the io_edit function to edit a string that is either created dynamically by the IO_Edit itself, or a string that is external and is received through the constructor arguments. Also IO_Edit gives the user the option of surrounding the editing line with a frame. Editing without a frame at row:2 col:5<big><pre>0123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678912 Hello!

I am editing a text_ |4 +-------------------------------------+5</pre></big> ==Constructors and Destructor== ====Constructors====IO_Edit can be created in two ways:<big><pre>IO_Edit::IO_Edit(int row, int col, int fieldlen, int maxdatalen, int* insertmode, bool framed = false, const char* frameChars = (const char*)0);</pre></big>This constructor dynamically creates an array of '''maxdatalen''' + 1 chars (an empty string) and sets IO_Field::_data to point to it. '''row and col and frameChars''' will be passed directly to the Frame class's '''top and left and frameChars''', respectively. But since an IO_Frame needs to surround the edit field, it has to have one char extra for each side. Therefore, (fieldlen + 2) should be passed to IO_Frame as width and 3 should be passed to IO_Frame as height. On the other hand, the IO_Field class holds the actual coordinate at which, the editing should happen. So, depending on the value of the '''framed''' being false or true the values, '''(row and col)''' or '''(row+1 and col+1)''' will be passed to IO_Field's constructor respectively.  The IO_Edit In this case is marked to be dynamic, so at destruction time, the memory is deallocated.  All the arguments needed for ciol's io_edit() function should be kept as attributes so they can be used at edit() time. <big><pre> IO_Edit::IO_Edit(char* str, int row, int col, int fieldlen, int maxdatalen, int* insertmode, bool framed = false, const char* frameChars = (const char*)0);</pre></big>This constructor works exactly like the above constructor, with one exception. The data being edited is not dynamic here. So the IO_Fields::_data should point where the '''str''' argument is pointing to. Obviously, in this case IO_Edit should be marked as non-dynamic so at destruction time, the memory is NOT deallocated. ====Destructor==== The IO_Edit's destructor, checks to see if the object is marked to be dynamic. In this case it will delete[] the character content of IO_Field's _data. ===Public Methods=== ====display()====<big><pre>void IO_Edit::display()const;</pre></big>display, first checks to see if IO_Edit is framed. if it is it will call the IO_Frame's display(), using _owner->getTop() and _owner->getLeft() as its topOffset and leftOffset arguments.Then it will makes a direct call to ciol's io_display() function passing IO_Field's data, getRow() and getCol() and also the fieldlen value form IO_Edit's attributes.<blockquote>Passing _owner->getTop() and _owner->getLeft() to IO_Frame's display() and also, using getRow() and getCol() for extracting row and col from IO_Field, makes row and col of the IO_Edit, relative to top, left of the form it is on.

IO_Menu can be organized in two ways, Vertical and Horizontal. *Vertical:<blockquote> The menu items will be displayed vertically and the list will be framed.</blockquote>*Horizontally<blockquote> The menu items will be displayed horizontally and the list will NOT be framed.</blockquote> ===Constructor===This is how an IO_Menu is created:<big><pre> IO_Menu(int row, int col, const char* items,int selIndex = 0,MenuDir dir = Vertical, const char* format = _MENU_CHARS, const char* frameChars = _FRAME_MENUS);</pre></big>*'''row''' and '''col''' are the top, left of where the menu will be displayed.*'''items''' is a "newline" separated list of menu items.*'''selIndex''' is the selected index of the menu, when it is initially displayed.*'''dir''' is one of the <big><code>enum MenuDir{Vertical, Horizontal}</code></big> values defined in io_def.h.*'''format''' is a 2 char, string, holding the surrounding chars of a selected menu item.*'''frameChars''' are the characters building the frame (if the object is framed). ===Public Methods===<big><pre>void display()const;</pre></big>This function displays menu items horizontally or vertically.For vertical menu, the menu items will be framed. <big><pre>int edit(void);</pre></big>This function allows users to navigate through menu items by pressing page down& up keys for vertical menu and right & left keys for horizontal menu.

In other words, it returns number of menuitems. ==IO_TextEdit==Inherit IO_Field and IO_Frame into a new class called IO_TextEdit. (Read: Practical Programming Techniques Using C++, pages 94 to 96, Multiple Inheritance topic) IO_TextEdit, uses the io_edit() function of ciol library having its isTextEditor flag set to true (1). IO_TextEdit calls the io_edit function repeatedly to edit series of strings that is created dynamically by the IO_TextEdit. If initially a newline-separated (\n) string is provided, IO_TextEdit will split the string into several strings and copy them into dynamically allocated series of strings.  IO_TextEdit will do the edit in a framed multiline text field. Editing begins with the cursor at the top left of the field or from the position the editing was terminated last time.  Each line can be edited using the io_edit. If during the process of editing the string is shifted, make sure all lines are shifted together. If in overstrike mode hitting the enter key goes to next line. Otherwise (in insert mode) it should insert a new line after the current line and if there is any data after the current position, the data should be cut, and pasted to the newly created line. The cursor should stand at the beginning of the new line. Up and Down arrows should focus the editing on previous and next lines respectfully and if needed, to accommodate this the lines should shift to up and down. However, if UP and Down keys are hit on the first or last line of data, then the function will terminate returning those values. Page up and down should scroll the lines in the text field up and down "height-2" times, or better to say, scroll the text a page up or down if possible. if paging is not possible, then the keys are ignored. Each line in the text can be the maximum of "_IO_TEXT_ALLOCATION_LINE_SIZE" characters, defined in io_def.h ===Constructors=== IO_TextEdit can be created as follows: ===Dynamic Data=== <big><pre>IO_TextEdit(int row, int col, int width, int height,int* insertmode, int maxLines = -1,const char* frameChars = (const char*)0);</pre></big> This constructor set the class to dynamically create "series of strings" to be edited by io_edit function in the edit method when needed.The arguments, row and column are top and left coordinates of the text field and width and height are the width and height of the text field.  insertMode is where the insert flag status is kept. frameChars hold the optional characters to build the frame. The "single dimension string" representation of the "series of the strings" holding the text, in this case, will be allocated and kept dynamically. maxLines argument will limit the number of the lines in text, unless it is set to -1. ===Non-dynamic Data=== <big><pre>IO_TextEdit(char* str, int row, int col, int width, int height,int* insertmode, int maxLines = -1,const char* frameChars = (const char*)0);</pre></big> This constructor initially splits the newline separated data from the "str" argument into series of lines that are created dynamically to be edited by the io_edit function in the edit method. The arguments, row and column are top and left coordinates of the text field and width and height are the width and height of the text field.  insertMode is where the insert flag status is kept. frameChars hold the optional characters to build the frame. The "single dimension string" representation of the "series of the strings" holding the text will then be where str argument is pointing to. No dynamic memory is allocated for this.It is the caller program's responsibility to accommodate enough space for the data; maxLines argument will limit the number of the lines in text, unless it is set to -1. Make sure you store the address of where str is pointing in the _data of IO_Field for future use. ==Public Methods== ===void display()const;=== Displays the frame, and in the frame it will display the text from the top left being the first character of the first line or otherwise any position it was been right before the editing was terminated the last time. ===void *data();=== first converts back the series of string to a single dimension newline separated string of characters pointed by the IO_Field's data, and then returns it. If object is dynamic (created by the first constructor) then you may have to reallocate memory to make room for conversion. If object is not dynamic, (made by the second constructor) then the conversion's target will be the _data of IO_Field that was set by the constructor. No dynamic memory allocation should be done for the conversion. It is the user program of the object's responsibility to provide enough memory for this. Make sure you modify void IO_Field::data(); method to virtual for this to work; ===int edit();=== Edits the text one line at a the framed text field created by the constructor as mentioned in the description of the class. ===bool editable()const;=== Always returns true; ===void set(const void *str);=== splits the newline separated data from the "str" argument into "series of strings" that are created dynamically to be edited by the io_edit function in the edit method. ===virtual ~IO_TextEdit();=== deallocates the "series of strings" created for editing purposes. Also if object holds the data dynamically (created by fist constructor) it will deallocate memory pointed by the IO_Fields _data; =The Application= =Tips= ==Sample Main==<big><pre>#include "io_def.h"#include "io_form.h"#include "io_label.h"#include "io_edit.h"#include "io_vedit.h"#include <string.h>#include <stdio.h>bool ValidYear(const char* data, IO_Form& F){ bool res = true; int i = atoi(data); if( i < 1895 || i > 2010){ res = false; F[4].set("Invalid"); } else{ res = true; F[4].set(""); } F[4].display(); return res;}bool ValidRating(const char*data, IO_Form& F){ bool res = true; double d = atof(data); if( d<0.0 || d>10 ){ res = false; F[6].set("Invalid"); } else{ res = true; F[6].set(""); } F[6].display(); return res;}void YearHelp(MessageStatus m, IO_Form& F){ if(m == SetMessage){ F.setHelp("years valid between 1895 and 2010"); } else{ F.setHelp(""); } F.display(IO_SHOW_HELP);}void RateHelp(MessageStatus m, IO_Form& F){ if(m == SetMessage){ F.setHelp("Numbers between 0.0 and 10"); } else{ F.setHelp(""); } F.display(IO_SHOW_HELP);} int main(void){ io_init(); int insert = 1; char str[51] = "testing this"; IO_Form F(true, 1, 3, 70,21 ); F <<new IO_Label("| Movie Information Entry |", 0, 3) <<new IO_Label("Name:", 2,2)<<new IO_Label("Director:", 5, 2) <<new IO_Label("Release Date:", 8, 2)<<new IO_Label(8, 21, 10) <<new IO_Label("User rating 1->10:", 11, 2)<<new IO_Label(11, 25, 10) <<new IO_Label("Classification:", 14, 2) <<new IO_Label("Genre:", 2, 36) <<new IO_Label("Comment:", 13, 29) <<new IO_Edit(1, 7, 15, 25, &insert, true, _FRAME_UNDERLINE) <<new IO_Edit(4, 11, 15, 30, &insert, true, _FRAME_UNDERLINE) <<new IO_Vedit(7,15, 5, 4, &insert, true, ValidYear, YearHelp, _FRAME_UNDERLINE) <<new IO_Vedit(10,20,4, 3, &insert, true, ValidRating, RateHelp, _FRAME_UNDERLINE); F.addHelp(new IO_Label(19,2, 60)); F.edit(); io_end(); return 0;};</pre></big> Screen Shot of the above program: <big><pre> +--| Movie Information Entry |---------------------------------------+ | | | Name: Genre: | | --------------- | | | | Director: | | --------------- | | | | Release Date: | | ----- | | | | User rating 1->10: | | ---- | | Comment: | | Classification: | | | | | | | | | | | +--------------------------------------------------------------------+</pre></big> ==IO_Form== If you want to use a linkedlist to implement IO_Form having a node like this would be a good idea: <big><pre>class IO_Node{ IO_Field* _f; bool _dynamic; bool _submitter; IO_Node* next; IO_Node* prev; ... ... ...};</pre></big>And then make your IO_Form a linkedlist of IO_Nodes.... With this you can have the IO_field kept in the node and at the same time keep track of the IO_Field being dynamically created and if it is a submitter or not. So the data of the node will be the three attributes; '''_f''', '''_dynamic''', and '''_submitter'''. ==Fardad adds io_textedit== This is an edited dialogue copied from an IRC meeting '''fardad:''' I am going to do (the skeleton of) IO_TextEdit as an example.
