#5093174 Strategy pattern.... am I on the right track?

Posted by Maple Wan on 10 September 2013 - 07:35 PM

Where is your override keyword? To realize Polymorphism, you have to implement 3 conditions:

1. Contains inheritance.(Interface or base class)

2. Contains override(use abstract/override or virtual/override or realize the interface method)

3. Mutiple base class objects which point to a derived class reference.


You should use override keyword in your derived class to replace the behavior of base class. Otherwise you should use new keyword to prevent derived class to replace the method of base class.

#5093170 rotating objects in a double orbit

Well, you should know the concepts of relative coordinate system and world coordinate system. Your triangles should save your relative point list and the center point. Then update the relative point list when rotate for some radius and redraw it. Give some simple code:

#define PI 3.1415926535

typedef struct 
    double x, y;
typedef class Triangle
    POINT pointList[3];
    POINT centerPoint;
    Triangle() { };  // Constructor
    ~Triangle() { };  // Destructor
    BOOL Draw();    // Realize your Draw method
    BOOL Rotate(double theta);    // Rotate method

BOOL TRIANGLE::Rotate(double theta)
    double cosVal, sinVal;
    for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++)
        cosVal = cos(theta * PI / 180);
        sinVal = sin(theta * PI / 180);
        // Compute the relative coordinate after rotate
        this->pointList[i].x = this->pointList[i].x * cosVal - this->pointList[i].y * sinVal;
        this->pointList[i].y = this->pointList[i].x * sinVal + this->pointList[i].y * cosVal;
    return this->Draw();

    // In your draw method, you should change your relative coordinate to world coordinate.
