Need help with by one

P: 1

I am working on my homework...and I have to do

create a class where it can calculate the area of the rectangle while under these conditions..

1. limit the width and length ...under 20
2. use set_length, get_length, set_width, and so on..and have the user input the length and width value
3. after the calculation is done, I have to use the function draw to draw the rectangle with some sort of symbol such as +++ or ===

Thansk for your help..

edit: I think I did number 2 and 3 part...but..number 1 part....limiting the value under 20....hmmmm
here is my code

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

class CRectangle {
int x, y;
void set_values (int,int);
void set_length (int length) { this->itslength = length;}
int get_length () const { return this->itslength; }
void set_width (int width) { this->itswidth = width; }
int get_width () const { return this->itswidth; }
void DrawShape (int length, int width) const;

int area () {return (x*y);}
int perimeter () {return (2*(x+y));}
int itslength;
int itswidth;

void CRectangle::set_values (int length, int width) {
x = length;
y = width;

void CRectangle::DrawShape (int length, int width) const
for (int i = 0; i<length; i++)
for (int j =0; j<width; j++)
cout << "*";
cout << endl;

int main () {
using namespace std;
int itslength, itswidth;

cout << "Please enter the width of the rectangle: ";
cin >> itslength;
cout << "Please enter the length of the rectangle: ";
cin >> itswidth;

CRectangle rect;

rect.set_values (itslength,itswidth);

cout << "area: " << rect.area();

cout << "Drawshape(): \n";

return 0;
