Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video Solution: Ask for a user's favorite movies, part of Learning C++.
…Okay.…I hope you had luck with that last challenge,…writing a program to capture your three top favorite movies.…Here's one possible solution to the challenge.…For this solution, remember all classes contain two files.…The hetero file, in my case, movie.h.…And the class file, movie.cpp.…Let's start with the header file.…In the header file, I declared three private data variables.…I have a string for the movie name, an…integer for the year, and a string for the rating.…Next, in my header file, I list all the function prototypes for this class.…They're going to be public.…The first two are constructors.…I have a default constructor.…I have a constructor that takes three…parameters: a string, an int, and a string.…
I have my destructor.…And then I have access and mutator methods for each of the fields.…SetName, getName, setYear, getYear, set Rating, and getRating.…Remember, we don't actually define the functions in the header file.…That's done in the .cpp file.…Let's go take a look at the definition for these functions.…
