    Loading up a scene graph using tinyXml

    Thanks i never really thought about it like that ill get back to you on my progress :D
  2. Since in a scene graph each node can have child nodes and those nodes can have child nodes and so on, how can i go through the graph if i dont know how 'deep' it is? I need to create a TiXmlElement for each node that has children but then i need another while statement to loop through that and so on and thats not viable at all. Maybe im looking at this the wrong way and there is another better way. please tell me. The basic structure of my xml file is <level> <node> <node /> <node> <node /> </node> </node> </level Im sure if someone has used tinyXml before or has done something like this they will understand what im saying. Sorry if that isnt very clear but im not sure how else to explain it. Thanks

    Stupid code in books + a question

    well whatever i do visual c++ gives me errors saying that i need to include a "stdafx.h" and even when i do i get a hudge list of errors this keeps giving me errors even when i dont use VC++ const float FeetPerMeter = Value; amongst other things it just adds up to a very fustrating experience and i doubt thats all the errors ill see
  14. iv been trying to write out code from books and iv coppied it exactly but it just refuses to work visual C++ is giving my a headache and every other compiler iv used seems to think of some error to give me has anyone else had problems like this starting to learn c++???????? all this anoyance is really putting me off learning c++ can anyone surgest some reliable books that actualy give me infomation that works? Question in a program where i ask a name and text says hello whoever how can i stop the program from exiting as soon as the name is entered? [Edited by - randomperson on December 2, 2006 1:53:19 PM]
