I'm working on this project and I keep getting this problem when the code tries to return the "guess" variable, instead of returning the value of "guess" it goes to line 9 which converts the value into a string for some reason, and then returns that. when I go to use the returned value in something, Python says that the value is "NoneType".
def ask_question(max_length, rowOrCol, guessNumber): guess = raw_input("What is the "+rowOrCol+" number of your "+guessNumber+" guess? ") try: guess = int(guess) if guess <= max_length: return guess else: print "That number was too big, it must be no larger then " +str(max_length) ask_question(max_length, rowOrCol, guessNumber) except(TypeError): print "Only numbers are accepted, please try again!" ask_question(max_length, rowOrCol, guessNumber)
I call the function with this line:
first_guess_row = ask_question(4, "row", "first")
Is there anything that I'm missing?
