Vectors of Objects Solution




  • Understand how to build and use Classes
  • Understand how to use vectors of objects built with classes

Development Environment: (all students must use Clion)

Skills: Classes, Default Constructor, Constructor, member functions, vectors of objects.

Reading: Chap 13

Deliverables: 1) This lab with 2 screen shots 2) lastnameFirstLab12.cpp, Scores.h, Scores.cpp

Part I – Skills Practice (10 points)

  • Open a new project in CLion. Call the project Lab13a.
  • For this project will make vectors of objects and use the built in member functions to add, and erase records.
  • New->New C++ Class

  • Add the name Bank. And accept the defaults Add to targets and Lab13a<-$(Source_Files)

  • This will create both a Bank.h file and a Bank.cpp file

  • Double Click on the Bank.h file. Replace the entire text with this

#ifndef BANK_H
#define BANK_H

#include <string>
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
class Bank
string name;
int number;
float balance;
string _name, int _number, float _balance);
string getName(){return name;}
void setName(string _name){name=_name;}
int getNumber() {return number;}
void setNumber(int _number){number = _number;}
float getBalance(){return balance;}
void increaseBalance(float amount);


  • Now double click on the Bank.cpp. Replace the entire code with the code below:

#include “Bank.h”
name = “”;
number = 0;
balance = 0;

Bank::Bank(string _name, int _number, float _balance)
name = _name;
number = _number;
balance = _balance;

void Bank::increaseBalance(float amount)
balance = balance + amount;

New->New C++ class. Call it functions

  • In functions.h

#include “Bank.h”
#include <vector>
void bubbleSort(vector<Bank> & acctVector);
ostream& operator << (ostream &out, Bank &tempBank);

  • In functions.cpp
  • Now double click on the main.cpp. Replace the entire code with the code below:

#include “functions.h”
void bubbleSort(vector<Bank> & acctVector)
//Bubble Sort records by name
int maxElement;
int index;
Bank tempBank3;

for (maxElement = acctVector.size() – 1; maxElement > 0; maxElement–)
for (index = 0; index < maxElement; index++)
if (acctVector[index].getName() > acctVector[index + 1].getName())
//swap the entire record (name, number, balance)
tempBank3 = acctVector[index];
[index] = acctVector[index + 1];
[index + 1] = tempBank3;

ostream& operator << (ostream &out, Bank &tempBank)
<< tempBank.getName() << endl;
<< tempBank.getNumber()<<endl;
<< tempBank.getBalance()<<endl<<endl;
return out;

  • In main.cpp

#include <iostream>
#include <vector>
#include “Bank.h”
#include “functions.h”
using namespace std;
int main()
string tempName;
int tempNumber, size;
float tempBalance;
Bank tempBank;

vector<Bank> acctVector;
<< “How many records do you want to add?\n;
>> size;
for (int i=0; i<size; i++)
<< “Name for customer ” << i+1 <<endl;
<< “Number for customer ” << i+1 <<endl;
>> tempNumber;
<<“Balance for customer ” << i+1 <<endl;
>> tempBalance;
//removes ‘/n’ in buffer for next getline
cout <<endl;


for (int i=0;i<acctVector.size(); i++)
<< acctVector[i]<<endl;

return 0;

  • Now if you did everything correctly it should compile. If it has errors, try to fix the errors by reading the error and clicking on the link to the error.

  • Once it successfully compiles, go to Run->Run Lab 13a (Note the Clion terminal window repeats all input from the user, so don’t worry about trying to fix that)

  • Take a screenshot of the successful output below:

Part II – outline/pseudo-code/algorithms (5 pts)

  • Work with your lab partner to write an outline in comments and psuedocode to complete the following program. Use plain English for your outline.
  • You should have one file broken into sections with comments. Each .h and .cpp should be in a separate section. Every program you write should have the following block at the top in comments. Make sure to fill in the Name, Class, Description and Lab Partner at the top of the file. Ensure your status is accurate.

/* Name:
Class: CSCI 1411-00X
Description: [fill in description]

Lab Partner:
Status: successfully compiled and run on csegrid [if it doesn’t run or meet all of the requirements, list the actual status!/*

Part III -Average Scores. (10 pts)

  • Use whichever IDE you prefer (for Part III and Part IV)
  • Add on to the lab 12 solution. You will add an operator << and a sort function (in functions.h and functions.cpp)
  • Design a Scores class that has private member variables to hold three quiz scores, a constructor a constructor and accessor/mutator (get and set) functions for each quiz. Then in main.cpp add an array of two sets of scores, print out those scores and print the average scores for each student.


  • Scores.h – declares the class, the accessors and mutators, declaration of average member function.


  • Scores.cpp – defines the double average() member function


  • functions.h – function prototypes for bubbleSort and operator <<


  • functions.cpp – function definitions for bubbleSort and operator <<


  • main.cpp – declare an array of 2 Scores, read in the 2 sets of 3 scores, Go through the array, call the .average() member function for each set, and print the 3 values and the average for each set.

  • Take a screenshot of the output showing the averages and place it below:


  • Turn in yourlastnamefirstLab12.cpp, scores.h, scores.cpp, functions.h, functions.cpp to canvas along with this lab and 2 screenshots.
