Greetings, and this is my first post with you. And I should had posted this earlier for a timely response.
By far, the assignment is due tonight at midnight EST, and consists a basic flowchart to determine if a given whole integer as prompted by the user is divisible by 23 without any remainders. Now, I am eager to know, if in the flowchart as attached, is there any kind of an activity that repeats the loop in the false statement a X amount of times before breaking from it and displaying a message saying the allowed repetitions were expended? Because the “Repeat number of times” activity is only allowed if designing a sequence and the professor did NOT ask for a sequence.
If this is answered already, please let me know and reference me to such.
Welcome to the Community
Create a variable counter with integer type and value as 1
Add a flow decision where needed to with decision as counter > 23
On the side where counter is less than 23 perform your actions and add assign to increment counter counter = counter+1
This is how you can break your loop when the count hits
After implement loop in flowchart, don’t forget to add annotations to explain you code and exit condition.
This can be a extra for what your professor asked you to do
Executing Workflow Analyzer will mark loop in flowchart as warnning by default as describe below.
Now I failed to clarify this: It is capped at a maximum of 13 repetitions. Now that I have the flow decision activity as indicated, is that the right way?
Yes that is the correct way to do it…
But i guess you missed incrementing the count…and also in default you can directly write 1
Count = count +1
You can do that after the write line activity
Hope this helps
Please specify which activity module will be. Or if there are some illustrated steps I can aid with. I am not completely familiar with this tool.
This is the most recent in the expression editor.
I forgot to mention, it’s in the log message activity of the else statement of the flowchart
After write line activity…and before log message activity add a assign activity with left side being count and right side being count+1
Hope this makes it clear
Oh, I get it!
nervous chuckle Just overlooked at it.
I’ll go ahead and mark this thread as solved, unless anything else comes up within the 3-day closure period. This sufficed my resolution so far.
