C++ Program to Print X Star Pattern

Write a C++ program to print the X star pattern using for loop.

#include<iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
	int i, j, val, rows;
     
    cout << "Enter X Pattern Rows = ";
    cin >> rows;

    cout << "X Pattern of Stars\n"; 

    val = rows * 2 - 1;

    for(i = 1; i <= val; i++)
    {
    	for(j = 1; j <= val; j++)
		{
            if(j == i || j == val - i + 1)
            {
                cout << "*";
            }
            cout << " ";
        }
        cout << "\n";
    }		
 	return 0;

C++ Program to Print X Star Pattern

This C++ example prints the X pattern of a given character using a while loop.

#include<iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
	int i, j, val, rows;
    char ch;

    cout << "Enter X Pattern Rows = ";
    cin >> rows;

    cout << "Enter Symbol for X Pattern = ";
    cin >> ch;

    cout << "X Pattern of Stars\n"; 

    val = rows * 2 - 1;

    for(i = 1; i <= val; i++)
    {
    	for(j = 1; j <= val; j++)
		{
            if(j == i || j == val - i + 1)
            {
                cout << ch;
            }
            cout << " ";
        }
        cout << "\n";
    }		
 	return 0;
}
