Hello, I decided to make another little game to implement my new knowledge in python. Problem is, I would like to be able to prompt the user for input (to ask for and reuse their name) and save their response to a variable so i can use it in later dialogue or something else. Am i able to just use… name = input("Please enter your name: ") …and then later on print something with their name in it…Are you able to just call the variable ‘name’ and put the name in the dialogue by print(“Hey " + name + " you won the game!”) or would that just prompt them to input their name again?
No, it would work, firstly it would get the input after that it saves it to a variable in this example name.
So after it did this it will work as a normal variable that a string was set to it.
It will only ask for user input once again if you re-define it.
name = input("Please enter your name: ") #i enter Ray print("Your name is: " + name) #prints Your name is: Ray name = input("What's your name again? ") //i enter Michael print("Your name again is: " + name) #prints Your name again is: Michael
Hope this helps
Fantastic!! Thank you very much!
