Scanf in visual studio not accepting multiple cases of characters

fixed the issue. Will look into that further I'm creating a conversion project for letters/numbers ASCII table. My code is supposed to be 'interactive', so the user would type 'y' or 'n' to answer questions on the screen. However, it doesn't want to do this twice... , I'm not sure what confuses you.
code :
char foo;
scanf(" %c", &foo);
int bar;
scanf("%d", &bar);
int height;
int width;
scanf("%d %d", &height, &width);
int height;
int width;
if (scanf("%d %d", &height, &width) != 2) {
    // handle the error, maybe exit the program.
#define _CRT_SECURE_NO_WARNINGS  // you said Visual Studio? Without it you should get
                                 // warnings about some functions being insecure.

#include <ctype.h>   // isalpha()  returns true if the value is a letter
#include <stdlib.h>  // EXIT_SUCCESS
#include <stdio.h>   // puts(), printf(), scanf()

int main(void)
    for(;;) {  // for-ever ... endless loop since the user exits by answering
               // 'n' or 'N' two times

        puts("Would you like to convert a number today?\nPlease press Y or N:");
        char input;
        if (scanf(" %c", &input) != 1)  // We reached EOF ... end of file
            break;                      // that's improbable for stdin,
                                        // but input could be redirected to
                                        // read from a file instead.

        if (input == 'y' || input == 'Y') {
            puts("\nThank you!\nWhat number?");
            int number;
            scanf("%d", &number);

            if (isalpha((char unsigned)number))  // *)
                printf("\nYour Number \t ASCII letter\n%d\t %c\n\n", number, number);
                puts("Sorry, but that's not the ASCII code of a letter :(\n");
        else if (input == 'n' || input == 'N') {
            puts("\nWould you like to convert a letter instead?\nPlease press Y or N:");
            scanf(" %c", &input);

            if (input == 'y' || input == 'Y') {
                puts("\nGreat choice adventurer!\nWhat letter will it be today?");
                char letter;
                scanf(" %c", &letter);

                if (isalpha(letter))
                    printf("\nYour letter \t ASCII code\n%d\t %c\n\n", letter, letter);
                    puts("Sorry, but that's not a letter :(\n");
            else if (input == 'n' || input == 'N') {
                puts("\nDifficult to please, I see...\n\nI suggest you move on with that attitude!\n");
                puts("Bye bye then.");
                return EXIT_SUCCESS;
        else {
            puts("Sorry I did not recognize your command... Please retry.");
            puts("Press Y or N next time!\n");

To fix this issue If the reset of the organization you're in is using MSTest, that's a good reason to use it. If you are doing this on your own, that reasoning is irrelevant.
For third-party frameworks, nUnit works well with VS2010, and it's easy to find information on how to use it. It's the only one I've used, since my previous employer didn't pony up for the MS Test licensing.

it helps some times It is not possible out of the box. But for VS 2010 atleast you can write MSTEST Extensions to provide nearly the same feature. Check this blog. But it is not nearly as good as NUnit's TestCase.

hop of those help? The problem is that the "%[^\n]" format specifier will leave the newline in the input buffer. The following scanf won't skip that newline because the %[] format specifier doesn't skip leading whitespace by default. (By contrast, most of the format specifiers like %s, %d and %f do skip whitespace by default.)
To solve the problem, you can put a space at the beginning of the format string, like so
code :
scanf(" %[^\n]", password);
       ^ this space forces scanf to skip any leading whitespace, including newlines

like below fixes the issue The "Debug Console" in VS Code is written to by debug adapters, and the text box at the bottom is used for expression evaluation (what you type here goes to a debug adapters evaluateRequest method).
The "Unable to find thread for Evaluation" messge is because "global evaluation" is not supported - the Python extension will only evaluate expressions when there is an active thread. If you hit a breakpoint and then type 1+1 in this box, you'll see it print 2:

hope this fix your issue I'm unsure if the scan_f is causing my program to skip lines while it's being debugged. The first printf(""); runs and accepts and input, however the second one outputs but doesn't accept and input and jumps to the third printf(""); . I initial was using a getchar but as I'm unfamiliar with C I reverted back to scanf_s until I'm more familiar with it.
