Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video Challenge: Ask for a user's favorite movies, part of Learning C++.
…This challenge is designed to reinforce the…skills you learned about classes and objects.…In this challenge, you're going to create a movie class.…The movie class will ask the user for the name of…their top three favorite movies, what year the movie was released,…and what was the rating, whether it was G for General…Audience, PG for Parental Guidance, R for Restricted, or M for Mature.…I want you to also add logic to make sure it's a valid year.…
Add the logic into the movie class, not in the main program.…Then, write a main program that will ask the user for there…three favorite movies and then print out a list when you're done.…I estimate that this challenge will take about 30 minutes.…
