    int variable not working in if-else statement

    Here is the code:

    Code:
    else {
            if (month == 4 || month == 6 || month == 9 || month = 11) {
                if (day <= 30) {
                    return true;
                }
                else {
                    return false;
    Here is the error:
    (266): warning C4305: '=': truncation from 'int' to 'bool'
    (266): error C2106: '=': left operand must be l-value

    the first month is underlined but I don't know what is wrong?

    Look at the last month comparison to the far right, you have month = 11 instead of month == 11.

    When posting code, please use code tags. Go Advanced, select the formatted code and click '#'.

    Code:
    if (day <= 30) {
                    return true;
                }
                else {
                    return false;
    Note that this can be shortened to

    Code:
    return day <= 30;
