    Default Creating pseudo code

    I'm creating psudeo code to help me write a Lab that i have to create.


    Create a program that keeps track of the following information input by the user:
    First Name, Last Name, Phone Number, Age

    Now - let's store this in a array that will hold 10 of these contacts. We will be storing the information for each contact in an object called Contact
    You should be able to add, remove and edit contacts in the array.

    Here is what I have so far. I hope you guys can help me fill in the blanks.


    Pseudo Code
    Gather the information about the contact

    Create a scanner object;
    Create a 4 X 10 array;

    Ask the user for input i.e. first name, last name, phone number & Age
    Create a new contact with the information from the user
    Contact contact = new Contact(firstName, LastName, PhoneNumber, Age);
    Put the Contact into the array
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    I guess my class array would be used for collecting the contact array. Is this right so far?

    "I guess my class array would be used for collecting the contact array. Is this right so far?" --I do not understand exactly what you are asking with this question. If that question is "Do I store my 10 Contact objects in an array?" Then the answer is yes.
    I do not agree with creating a 4x10 array. You need only a single dimensional array that holds ten of type Contact. Each Contact object will hold it's four respective values (the way you have shown in your pseudo code).

    Jps,

    okay if i create a 1 dimensional array and use a New contact object. How would I create a new contact object without hard coding it? Wont I have to manually hard code a new contact object?

    No, there would be no reason to hard code any Contact object.
    Set up an array to hold 10 Contact objects.
    Get the four values from the user.
    Create a Contact object using the four values.
    Add the object to the array.
    repeat
