Validating Data Entries

Validating Data Entries

Suppose you have an application that reads input from the keyboard. How can you detect whether alphabetic data is being entered into an integer field from a cin statement?

The easiest way to validate the user’s input is by having cin read a string rather than a numeric data type such as int or float. After the user has entered the data, you should examine that string to detect its validity. For example:

 #include #include using namespace std;int main(){  bool error = false;  string data;  cout>data; // what if user enters a character by mistake?  for (unsigned i = 0; i
