Simple Bank Management System Project Using C++ | C++ bank management system


Hello, coders. Welcome to codewithrandom. Today we will learn how to make a simple bank management system consisting of operations to add, show, search, delete and update records of the banking system.

We will be performing the CRUD operations in C++ with this project. The data will be in a file after adding at least one record. The uniqueness of this project is that we are using a different technique than the other articles that use file input and output. 

The project might be a little advanced to beginners. Nonetheless, I will explain it in the easiest way possible. Let us start by seeing the options available for us.

Overview of the UI

As we can see from the User Interface of the app in the main picture at the start of our article, the available options are:

  1. Add a record to file
  2. Show record(s) from the file
  3. Search Record from file
  4. Update Record
  5. Delete Record
  6. Quit

Now let’s see the code part of the project.

Code Explanation

After the headers of the program, we can see that we have declared the account_number, firstName, lastName, and total_Balance as private because we don’t want to modify values within the function.

In general, it is a good practice to declare such variables private.

Let’s now evaluate the main parts of the code.

The main() function

It consists of a switch-case statement with the respective functions.

The read_data() function

The function aims to take the data whenever necessary. It is more like a helper function to the main functions.

The show_data() function 

It is another helper function, just like the read_data(). But this function prints the values when we need them.

The read_rec() function

It is the main function used to add data to the file. Here we can see a new technique known to people experienced in C++. The method reads the structure data directly from a file into the memory occupied by it.

We keep this in the while loop to display all the data present.

The write_rec() function

It is used to take the data from the user. Similar to read_rec() function we use outfile.write() here which performs the same thing except writes instead of reading it.

The search_rec() function

If the file is not there or the file is empty, we check and print the needed message.

If it exists, we get the total records using the infile.tellg()/sizeof(*this) method.

the tellg() method is used to return the “get” position of the pointer in the stream. It reports a token value that can later be used to seek the same place, instead of the size.

Then we use infile.seekg() to point to the position and get the data necessary.

The edit_rec() function

So to edit the data, we first need to know the total number of records, which record to update.

Once we get the record we need to update, we show the record data using the show_data() function. 

Then open the file to append that record and call read_data() to take the new data for that record.

The delete_rec() function

In the function, we create a temp file to store the details and then delete the record we want to delete. We use the remove function as a helper function to remove the file and rename the temp file that already has the same data without the deleted data as the deleted file name.

That is the working of the code. It might seem a bit hard but understanding this gives us the knowledge of core concepts in C++.
