Hangman - getCurrentProgress()

Can anyone tell me what the getCurrentProgress() does ? He just writes it out of thin air and I can't connect it to anything.

Hi there,

From memory (which is a dangerous thing to rely on!!) the getCurrentProgress() method displays how well you are doing at guessing the whole string. So, it inserts letters where you've correctly guessed and a dash where you haven't got the letter yet:

--------- // no correct guesses
T-EE----E // guessed T & E

I hope that helps,


No problem! :+1: :smile:
