After sorting out some earlier misunderstandings on my part
and thanks to the community, I have come across my first major
stumbling block in logic and know-how I suppose.
Basically, I am developing a game that has very simple rules.
I need to do a few things most of which are simple collections of
user input. After collection, basically, storing that data for
future retrieval, and modification is where I am stumped. I started
by taking in all the user's, keeping in mind there is no limit to
how many people can "play the game". I stored this in a list.
Next, the game dictates that on each day, a player inputs a
number, and rolls 2 dice. The number is multiplied by the die rolls
and that number is stored for the first "day" of the game, for that
user. I have to do this for every user for 1 day. I need to account
their mistakes in input to allow editing of all input at any time.
Nested lists seems like it could work but i'm having a hard time
wrapping my head around it. Is nested lists really the way to go
-- nested lists? I'd need a grouping of all players
day1Roll = 6
day1sales = 4500
day1ModSales = 27000
So once it's all said and done, I should be able to look at
everyone at once, along with individuals if I want... I'm just
looking for a good starting point. I've never done anything like
this. I could do this with SQL, a database, and asp.net no problem,
but Director I haven't used extensively in quite a while. I visited
the Xtra's for databases but the demo's were very poor, so I don't
feel confident in paying a lot for a retail version of them.
Recommendations? Sorry for the long message, thanks in advance for
