Post converting int to string
i am trying to code a program that will allow me to see a number on the nxt display screen and be able to change that number by pressing the nxt buttons and my problem is that when i go to display the number i use the line: nxtDisplayCenteredTextLine(6, answer); and answer is a int. i thought that it would just display the int that i have answer as, but it gives me this error:**Error**:Procedure call Parameters don't match declaration for 'nxtDisplayCenteredTextLine(const long nLineNumber, const unsigned string & sFormatString, ...)'.

here is the rest of the code for that function:

#pragma config(Sensor, S3,     touch,          sensorTouch)
#pragma config(Motor,  motorA,          left,          tmotorNXT, PIDControl, encoder)
#pragma config(MotorPidSetting,  motorB,  255, 255, 65535, 255, 255,   65535, 65535, 65535)
#pragma config(MotorPidSetting,  motorC,  255, 255, 65535, 255, 255,   65535, 65535, 65535)
//*!!Code automatically generated by 'ROBOTC' configuration wizard               !!*//

#define nxtorange 3
#define nxtleft 2
#define nxtright 1
#define nxtgrey 0

int Question1()
   int answer
   nxtDisplayCenteredTextLine(1, "left = add"); // Displays instructions
   nxtDisplayCenteredTextLine(2, "right = subtract"); // Displays instructions
   nxtDisplayCenteredTextLine(3, "press grey when done"); // Displays instructions
   nxtDisplayCenteredTextLine(6, answer)

   while(sensorvalue[nxtgrey] = -1)
      if(nNxtButtonpressed == nxtright)// checks if the right btn is pushed
         answer = answer + 1
         nxtDisplayCenteredTextLine(6, answer)

      if(nNxtButtonPressed == 2)// checks if the left btn is pushed
         answer = answer - 1
         nxtDisplayCenteredTextLine(6, answer)


   return answer;

Use the sprintf routine.

Declare a buffer string variable:
char buf[5];

To display convert the integer to a string:
sprintf(buf, "%d", answer);
nxtDisplayCenteredTextLine(6, buf);

Hope that helps.

nxtDisplayTextLine(6, "%d", answer) should also work.
