# English To Metric Conversion

Nov 25, 2008

[Code]...

Declare constants for all numeric values in the two formula above. The variable used to represent the number of meters and the numeric constant 39.37 must be declared as the data type double. the constants and data types in the first formula should be declared as integers. Convert the Total Inches in the second formula to a Double data type before using it in the calculation. Set Option Strict to on in your code. (Hint: After the number of meters has been determined, the maximum number of kilometers can be computed from Kilometers = Meters/1,000. Next, the remaining meters can be determined from: Remaining Meters = Meters - 1,000 * Kilometers. The number fo integer meters in Remaining Meters then can be determined from: Integer Meters = Convert.ToInt32(Remaining Meters). Continue with the same technique to compute the number of centimeters.)

## English IDE Setup Project Installs English .NET Framework Even Though Localization = German?

Apr 30, 2009

I'm facing a major problem with a Deployment Project I created to install one of my applications.I am using the ENGLISH IDE of the Visual Studio 2008 - even though my end users will have German environments. This is why I set the

Localization = German

Property in the Deployment Project's Properties. The UI of the generated setup is German, so all's fine there. However, the setup installs the ENGLISH .Net Framework. I have not found any way around this.The problem are at least twofold:

1. An English Framework on a German PC might cause instabilities.

2. It's a big flaw to see UI inconsistencies (i.e. the UI and Setup of the application is German while the NET Framework shows certain elements in English, e.g. the DisplayName property of cultures)how can I get the project to install the localized .NET Framework?

## Force Asc To Use English Codepage On Non-english Systems?

Jun 15, 2012

I want to simulate a way to "force" the ASC function to use the english codepage, even on a system having the "language for non-unicode" different than English.[code]On a system having "language for non-unicode" set as English, currently the result is 140..On a system having "language for non-unicode" set as Slovakian, currently the result is 79..The twist is I CANNOT user AscW (for reasons I cannot disclose)In the particular example above I would need for the code to always return 140.If there's a way to force the whole program to use the english code page I could work with that as well.[code]

## VS 2005 : User Settings Metric/Imperial XMLserialize?

Apr 1, 2009

I am having a bit of an issue and would like some opinions. I have a settings class that I use in my program that gets passed around to various pieces of the program. When the program exits, the settings class is serialized out to an xml file. When the program starts the settings class is serialized back from the xml file.If the program doesn't find an existing xml file, the defaults in the class are used and a new xml file is created when the program exits.This all works well. Here is a trimmed down version of my settings class:

Public NotInheritable Class UserSettings
Private _Length As Double = 10 'feet
Private _Name As String = "Inert Material"

[code]....

The problem that I am having is that if the program units are metric, then the default values are always converted in the constructor and the xml serializer then stuffs the values that exist in the configuration (over writing the converted default value which is what I want) into the proper properties. The reason for this behavior is to make sure that that new properties that don't exist in the xml file have a proper default value when metric units are required.

It seems wasteful to convert all of the default values every time when working with metric units? Is there a better way to do this? My full class has currently about 15 default values that need to be converted to metric equivalents. Ideally I would only like to convert values that haven't come from the xml file.

## Allowing User To Switch From Metric To Imperial When Ok Button Pressed

Mar 3, 2011

I am making a program that calculates various results with variables entered by the user. What I am trying to do is incorporate a function that will allow the user to switch from metric to imperial easily but only when the ok button is pressed. Now I got all the coding done for the metric and everything is working fine. My problem is when I use the radiobuttons to switch the entered variable in the text box to the desired unit it gives me a 0 or a random number in the textbox...

I also have labels indicating each variables unit which I easily managed to change with the text box using this code. :
'Change Labels to Metric
lblMDegreeC.Text = "Degree C"
lblMDegreeC2.Text = "Degree C"
lblMmm.Text = "mm"
lblMmm1.Text = "mm"
lblMmm2.Text = "mm"
lblMm.Text = "m"
lblMm2.Text = "m"
lblMm3.Text = "m"
lblMDegreeC3.Text = "Degree C"

I created all the coding to convert the metric variables to imperial. My problem is changing the textbox text when the user switches the units during run time. The labels change without a problem but the textbox never works. I have attached the coding for the file.

## Text -> Excel Conversion (with Extensive Formatting Required After Conversion)?

May 11, 2012

I'm creating a program in VB.net that does the following:At a high level I receive a file in email, put the attachment in a monitored folder, import the text file to excel, format the excel, and then email the excel file to a list of recipients.

Here is my plan:

Completed: Outlook VBA to monitor all incoming email for specific message. Once message is received drop attached .txt file in a specific network folder.

Completed: (VB.net) Monitor folder, when text file is added begin processing

Not Complete: (VB.net) Import text file to Excel

Not Complete: (VB.net) Format Excel Text file.(add in a row of data,format column headers with color/size, add some blank columns, add data validation to some of the blank columns that allow drop down selections)

Completed: (VB.net) Save file.

Completed: (VB.net) Send file to list of recipients.

Obviously the items above that are not complete are the bulk of the work, but I wanted to get some advice on what some of you think would be the best way to approach something like this. The import and formatting of the file are causing me some problems because I just can't decide what would be the most efficient way to do this.

The way stated above. Import to excel -> format Having a template excel that contains all of the formatting already done for me and attempting to transition the data to this document (no clue if/how I can do this). Is it even feasible? Have the template already created and then import the text file to a new excel file, then transition that data to the excel template?

Something I thought about, in terms of formatting the document, was to record a macro of me doing all of the formatting that I'm going to need and then attempt to convert that macro into my vb.net code, but I'm not sure if that will work. I will need to verify that the text file comes in the EXACT format every time correct?

## C# - Date Difference In English

Jun 11, 2009

How do I calculate relative time?How do I calculate someone's age in C#? Anyone know how of a function in VB.NET or C# that will take two dates, calculate the difference and output that difference in an english string? For example if I pass the dates '3/10/2009' and '3/25/2009', the function would return the string "15 Days" or if I pass the dates '3/10/2005' and '3/15/2007', the function would return "2 Years, 5 days"

## English Textbox To Pig Lain?

Jun 6, 2011

I have been playing around with trying to create an english to pig latin translator. I am not really sure where to start, so right now I am just focusing on splitting a string and search for "A", if the word has "A" add "way" to the end of it. Here is what I figured out from some reasearch (I found most of this from a post on here): Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

[Code]...

It works, But I am not sure how to get it so it search the entire string without having to do 1,2,3,ect.

What would be the best way to search the string for certain letters? I was thinking some type of case or loop but I tried a few different things, but could not get it process correctly. Google, gives me alot of different examples, but I can not get most of them working with my code. I only have a semester of VB.net Programming, so I am trying to find the best way to do this, without making it too complicated.

## Use A Sub Procedure To Get English Words

Mar 11, 2010

I have a program in which a user enters a sentence in English into a text box, then the sentence is translated into French and German based on words in an array of structures that gets its values from a text file. I have almost all of the program written, but I am a bit confused on how to get VB to get the English words that are entered into the text box separately so they can be translated individually and the value returned. I need help with this last part. I need to use a Sub Procedure to get the English Words and to Translate them.[code]

## VB English To Piglatin Translator?

Jun 12, 2011

I am making an english to pig latin translator and I cannot quite get this right! For some reason i can always get the first word to translate but the other words jumble together and sometimes repeat themselves.The rules for this program are as follows: To translate an English word into a pig Latin word, place the first letter of the English word (if it is not a vowel) at the end of the English word and add the letters "ay." If the first letter of the English word is a vowel, place it at the end of the word and add "y." Using this method, the word "jump" become "umpjay," the word "the" becomes "hetay" and the word "ace" becomes "ceay". Blanks between words remain blanks.

So far this is what I've got: Public Class Form1 Private Sub btnTran_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnTran.Click Dim Sentence As String, letter As String, wordI As String, word1 As String, word As Double, wordamount As Double, counter As Integer = 0, current As Double txtOutput.Text = ""

## Reading DBase DBF With Non-English Characters

Mar 15, 2011

I have a tool which reads dBase files and uploads the contents to SQL Server, part of a system to import shapefiles. It works but now we have a requirement to import files that include non-English characters (Norwegian in this case, could be other languages later) and they're being corrupted. The dBase files are being read using an OleDbDataAdapter. Stepping through the code I can see that the text is wrong as it is read in. I'm assuming it's something to do with code pages or Unicode but I have no idea how to fix it.A dBase Reader application tells me the DBFs are in code page 1252 - I don't know if this is correct. My upload tool runs on Win7 with English (UK) regional settings.[code]Is there a way to tell OleDbDataAdapter what code page to use or a better way to read dBase files from VB.Net?

## English To French/German Translator?

Mar 24, 2009

Rudimentary Translator gives English words and their French and German equivalents. Store these words in a text file and read them into a structure having a member for each language. Write a program that sorts arrays according to the English words. The program should then request an English sentence as input from the keyboard and translate it into French and German. For example, if the English sentence given is MY PENCIL IS ON THE TABLE, the French translation will be MON CRAYON EST SUR LA TABLE, and the German translation will be MEIN BLEISTIFT IST AUF DEM TISCH.

Note: Assume that the only punctuation in the sentence is a period at the end of the sentence. Use a binary search to locate each English word.English words and their French and German equivalents.

## Searching Words In English Dictionary?

Jan 21, 2012

This Visual Basic program running on Visual Studio 2010 needs modification on the search coding, so a search for words from the dictionary is performed, then the program should test words from dictionary to test if words value equal 100 based off the given rule :
A=1, B=2, C=3 ..... Z=26,
Then displays all the words from the search that equal 100 in a listbox. I will attach the program I have so far. I would like to modify the program so when the search button is clicked, the program will check all words from the dictionary, or English Language, or etc..which equals 100. The goal is to find inputted words by the user that equal exactly 100 and also searches for words in the dictionary that equal exactly 100.

This Visual Basic program allows a user to input a word and also SHOULD search for words in the dictionary, English language, etc. that equals exactly 100 based on the rule, then the program calculates the value of inputted words or searches based on the rule. I need to modify my program so that the search button will search all combinations of characters that equal 100 (and possibly display in a second listbox) and compare to words in the English Dictionary and then display the words from the dictionary that equal 100 in a third listbox (I have not added second or third listbox to original program). Is this possible, and how does the code look and work to perform a search of all words in the Dictionary .

Public Class Form1
Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
