Thread: Why won't the grid generate?

    Why won't the grid generate?

    Hello! Trying to figure out why my grid for my memory game won't generate, I have all the code ready and it compiles. Heres my code...

    void Generate(int grid[5][6]);
    void display(int grid [5][6],int matched [5][6]);
    int main()
    {
    int grid[5][6];
    int matched[5][6];

    int i=0, j=0;
    int r = r % 5;
    int c = c % 6;

    // Generate the matched grid
    for (i=0; i<5; i++)
    {
    for (j=0; j<6; j++)
    {
    if (i==0 || j==0 || i==j)
    {
    matched[i][j] = 0;
    } // end of if

    else
    {
    matched[i][j] = 1;
    } // end of else

    } // end of for j

    } // end of for i

    // Display the grid
    // Display(grid, matched);

    system("pause");

    } // end of main()

    // Generate the grid
    Generate(grid);
    // Algorithm for Program 5
    void Generate(int grid[5][6])
    {
    int row, column = 0;
    int r = 0, i = 0, j = 0;
    // Fill grid with value 0


    // Loop through rows
    for ( i = 0; i < 5; i++ )
    {

    // Loop through the columns
    for ( j = 0; j < 6; j++ )
    {

    // Store the value 0 at the current position
    grid[i][j] = 0;
    }// end of loop

    }// end of loop

    srand(time (NULL));
    // Loop 15 times
    for (i=0; i<15; i++)
    // Generate a random number 1 - 99
    r = rand();
    r = (r - 0) * (100 - 1) / (RAND_MAX - 0) + 1;


    // Loop as long as position picked contains a value
    do
    {
    // Pick a random row
    row = rand() % 5;
    // Pick a random column
    column = rand() % 6;

    } while (grid [row] [column] !=0);// end of loop

    // Store the value at the chosen location
    grid[row] [column] = r;

    // Loop as long as position picked contains a value
    do
    {
    // Pick a random row
    row = rand() % 5;
    // Pick a random column
    column = rand() % 6;

    } while (grid [row] [column] !=0);// end of loop
    {
    // Store the value at the chosen location
    grid[row] [column] = r;

    }// end of loop
    }// end of function

    void display(int grid [5][6],int matched [5][6])
    {
    int i=0, j=0;
    for (i = 0; i < 5; i++)
    {
    for (j = 0; j < 6; j++)
    {
    if (matched[i][j] == 0)
    {
    printf("%c", 177);
    } // end of if
    else
    {
    printf("%i", grid[i][j]);
    } // end of else

    } // end of loop

    } // end of loop

    } // end of function


    now the "generate(grid);" is suppose to make my 5 by 6 grid appear, but when I compile its just a blank screen. So, how do I fix this?

  2. #2
    i see that the funciton is generating the grid correctly (at least form what i can see, although i wouldn't choose that way).

    Anyway, you aren't calling display anywhere, You have one that is commented out. But you need to call display at sometime.

  3. #3
    okay, i uncommented it, it still compiles but gives me "undefined reference to 'Display' "

  4. #4
    i took the time to look at some of the formating, first of all your "GenerateGrid" appears to not even be in any sort of code. It is outside main. Not sure what programming tool you are using, but make sure you tab things so that it is easy to read.

    as far as the error you are currently experience is becuase your prototype at the top is display and the call is Display. You have a different case of d's. I would also suggest to take up this naming convention.

    functions start with a capital, variables start with lowercase.
