hi friends im facing one problem
i have used cin to input a choice like (cin>>ch)
then i have used to take input to string as getline(cin, string_s)
but getline does not works when i use cin

if i donot use cin it works well
why it is happening???
and is there any alternative to take integer then string input

Please post the exact code that does not work and explain what happens.

getline() reads input until the newline character and cin>> fails to remove the newline character after reading input. By calling getline() after cin>>, you're essentially just grabbing the newline character (and any white space) that cin>> left behind.[^]

You can use getline() to get the number as well (just have to take an extra step to interpret as number).

Very likely cause. 5.
This is what I have and it works perfectly -
using namespace std;
string str;
getline(cin, str);
cout << str << endl;

Don't think you understood the OPs problem, see my solution.

I think you're correct.
