Class Challenge Consider a class called  Track  that has following  methods : 1. An  Init  method that initializes the class 2. Submit  method that allows the user to submit a new integer between 0  and 999. 3. Find  method that accepts an integer and returns  true  if the user  previously submitted that number,  false  otherwise. Part A:   Write a class  declaration  for the  Track  class on the chalk  board.
Class Challenge Part B:   Write a  main  function that: 1. Declares a new object (variable) of your  Track  class. 2. Calls the  Init  method to initialize your object. 3. Prompts the user for 5 numbers and uses the  Submit  function to submit  these numbers to the object. 4. Uses the  Find  function to determine if the number 20 was submitted. Notice that we’re able to use our  Track  class without knowing how it actually  works internally.

Class Challenge Part C:   Write your Track class methods: 1. Init 2. Submit 3. Find Now watch what we can do…
Constructors class Circ { public: void Init (float x, float y, float r) { m_x = x; m_y = y; m_rad = r; } float GetArea(void) { return(3.14159*m_rad*m_rad); } private: float m_x, m_y, m_rad; }; main() { Circ a, b; a.Init(3,3,10); cout << a.GetArea(); b.Init(1,1,33); cout << b.GetArea(); } In our  Circ  class example, the  Init  member function is used to  initialize each instance of the  class with specific values. C++ actually has an  official  way to do this:  a constructor

Constructors class Circ { public: void Init (float x, float y, float r) { m_x = x; m_y = y; m_rad = r; } float GetArea(void) { return(3.14159*m_rad*m_rad); } private: float m_x, m_y, m_rad; }; main() { Circ a; a.Init(3,3,10); cout << a.GetArea(); } Circ A constructor is a special member function that has the  same name  as the class  itself. It is responsible for initializing an instance’s data when the variable is  created. The constructor is called  automatically  every time you  create a new instance of your  class. (3,3,10);
Constructors class Circ { public: Circ(float x, float y, float r); float GetArea(void) const; private: float m_x, m_y, m_rad; }; // Circ::Circ is a constructor Circ::Circ(float x, float y, float r) { m_x = x; m_y = y; m_rad = r; } float Circ::GetArea(void) const { return(3.14159*m_rad*m_rad); } main() { Circ a(1,2,4); cout << a.GetArea(); } You can define the constructor in  the  class declaration  (like the  previous example), or in the usual  way, shown here: 1            2           4  a .m_x     .m_y     .m_rad         1 2 4 50.26
