I am new to the program, and am having trouble learning VB.net. I have a project due soon, and I hardly know where to begin. Attached is the link to the assignment. http://www.lasalle.edu/~lopinto/MIS400/downloads/Assn3.pdf
The link does not contain any spyware/malware or anything. Any help at all regarding this assignment is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I would suggest beginning with creating the interface. That should be simple enough.

Then start woking on the different pieces, perhaps the help menu, or the messageBox that should pop up when the form loads, or perhaps the sub procedure that determines the winner (simple comparing) and the margin of victory (simple subtraction). Then try putting those pieces together. That's the basics of programming (and especially Object Oriented Programming), creating small pieces and then using them together.

If you have more specific questions, please feel free to post them but please don't expect anyone to do your homeWork, you wouldn't learn as much that way! :)

Thanks for your help thus far. Haha no I don't want you to do my homework for me (unless you want to). I will do as you said and start with the interface, then move onto the actual code. Once I get into that, I will post any specific questions, which I'm sure I will have.

look on the bright side, once you get more used to the environment and how to code vb, you'll be able to write programs like that in a matter on minutes. i remember when i took up vb programming 2 years ago, i had the hardest time with (what now seems) to be the simplist stuff. learning programming does pay off in the end. :) let me know how ya do on this assignment!

One thing that helps me is to make sure that I name my objects for what they will be handling.

so for your two team text boxes I would do something like:

txtTeam1 and txtTeam2

for the score text boxes, I would name them:

txtScore1 and txtScore2

This just helps me keep things organized. When my objects are organized it helps me reason my way through the project.

Public Sub New()

MyBase.New()

'This call is required by the Windows Form Designer.

InitializeComponent()

'Add any initialization after the InitializeComponent() call

End Sub

'Form overrides dispose to clean up the component list.

Protected Overloads Overrides Sub Dispose(ByVal disposing As Boolean)

If disposing Then

If Not (components Is Nothing) Then

components.Dispose()

End If

End If

MyBase.Dispose(disposing)

End Sub
