    what is wrong with this?!

    new to javascript, had an assignment. basically, user enters a product number, my switch statement determines the price, then the user enters a quantity and, and my script is supposed to total everything that is entered. it doesn't do it and i don't know why. not allowed to use arrays. help!!!


    PHP Code:

    <html>
    <
    head>
        <
    title>Untitled</title>
        <
    script type="text/javascript">
            
            var 
    productNumber 0;
            var 
    p//convert product number to int
            
    var quantity;
            var 
    q//convert quantity number to int
            
    var price;
            var 
    pCost 0//price * quantity
            
    var totalSum;
            var 
    counter 0;
            
            
    totalSum 0;
            
    //capture number
            
    productNumber window.prompt ("Enter product number for an item (1-5), Enter -1 to quit:");
            
            
    parseInt(productNumber);

            while (
    productNumber != -1)
                {
            
                switch (
    p)
                    {
                        case 
    1price 2.98
                            
    quantity window.prompt("Enter quantity sold for product 1:");
                            
    parseInt(quantity); 
                            
    pCost price q;
                        break;
                        
                        case 
    2price 4.50
                            
    quantity window.prompt("Enter quantity sold for product 2:");
                            
    parseInt(quantity);

                        break;
                        
                        case 
    3price 9.98

                    }
            
    counter += 1;
            
    totalSum+= parseInt(pCost);

    heaps wrong... heaps

    but lets not get to carried away..

    You seem to like the parseInt function a bit to much...

    first thing to do is use it properly, it needs a radix.

    next it returns an INTEGER..... NOT a number with a decimal included

    now change this

    Code:
    totalSum+= parseInt(pCost);


    to this

    Code:
    totalSum +=  pCost;
