Hi this is my first message in this forum, I'll try to be the part of this community by time.

I need a help on the TicTacToe game that I am working on it. There is no error or I don't have any problem,but the thing that I want to learn is how to set the computer to make its move. I am not going to set a complex algorithm,because I am not working on algorithms I just wanted set a simple move pattern by myself.I need to see an example just for a move then I'll take care the rest of it.

For example; I want the computer(symbol O) to play the middle square, if is not occupied. Could you show and explain to me how to do the move for this particular way, please?

You can compile and run the program there is no error, after you made your move, the computer doesn't play because is empty. I need help on that class. If you are interested here is the codes.Thanks (I need help here)
