G.3. Class Screen

Class Screen (Figs. G.3G.4) represents the screen of the ATM and encapsulates all aspects of displaying output to the user. Class Screen approximates a real ATM's screen with a computer monitor and outputs text messages using cout and the stream insertion operator (<<). In this case study, we designed class Screen to have one operationdisplayMessage. For greater flexibility in displaying messages to the Screen, we now declare three Screen member functionsdisplayMessage, displayMessageLine and displayDollarAmount. The prototypes for these member functions appear in lines 1214 of Fig. G.3.

Screen Class Member-Function Definitions

Figure G.4 contains the member-function definitions for class Screen. Line 11 #includes the Screen class definition. Member function displayMessage (lines 1417) takes a string as an argument and prints it to the console using cout and the stream insertion operator (<<). The cursor stays on the same line, making this member function appropriate for displaying prompts to the user. Member function displayMessageLine (lines 2023) also prints a string, but outputs a newline to move the cursor to the next line. Finally, member function displayDollarAmount (lines 2629) outputs a properly formatted dollar amount (e.g., $123.45). Line 28 uses stream manipulators fixed and setprecision to output a value formatted with two decimal places. See Chapter 15, Stream Input/Output, for more information about formatting output.
