I'm trying to create a game that involves rolling a dice. When I load the program and click the btnRoll button, the dice works fine and stops after a random number (between 10 and 20) of face changes. It then records the score in the a new line in a ListBox. Only problem is, when I press the roll button again, the face only changes once before recording the result.
I have tried creating a separate program that simply rolls the dice without recording the result, and it works fine. So I used roughly the same code in my game, but it still won't work. I have tried looking online for help for a few days now, so I figured this would be a good time to ask here.[code]...
So my question is, I'm wiriting a VERY basic dice rolling program for my computer programming class in high school. I'm using a randomize function to generate numbers but I only want it to do numbers 1 - 6....how do I do this?
Dim x As Integer Randomize() x = CInt(10 * Rnd())
Dim Y As Integer Randomize() Y = CInt(10 * Rnd())
That is my code for my x and y (each die) to generate code, but how do I make it do 1 - 6 ONLY? Develope a game that in which a player rolls two dice. Each die has 6 faces. Each face contains 1, 2,3,4,5,6 after the dice have come to rest the sum of the spots is calculated, if the sum is 7 or 12 on the first throw, the player wins. If the sum is 2,3, or 11 on the first throw, the player loses, and the house wins. If the sum is 4,5,6,8,9,10 on the first throw the sum becomes the player's point. To win, a player must roll the dice until the plater rolls the point value. The player loses by rolling a 7 before rolling the point. I also have another question, How would I set this up to keep up with points and stuff? and the part that says "The player loses by rolling a 7 before rolling the point." I have no clue what to do on that. I'm not asking for code hand outs. I'm just asking what functions and such I'd use to write the code.
I'm doing some maintenance on some software originally built by my predecessor at the company (who has since moved on to greener pastures). I'm currently rolling out a new version of the software. At this company, the installation procedure is basically to just shove the /bin/Release directory out into our automated program updater's magic directory, allowing it to automatically copy the contents of that directory over to the local /Program Files/ and let the magic happen. The magic always seems to happen, so there's no big issue, there, although it does weird me out somewhat, after many years of .msi installers...
I would like to have some sort of percentage on the amount of times each button has been pressede.gButton 1 is pressed 5 times, button 2 is pressed 3 times, button 3 is pressed 2 times.I would like this to create a percentage output onto the same form that is updated everytime a button is pressed on the form.
I have one multi-row INSERT statement (300 or so sets of values) that I would like to commit to the MySQL database in an all-or-nothing fashion. insert into table VALUES
(1, 2, 3), (4, 5, 6), (7, 8, 9);
In some cases, a set of values in the command will not meet the criteria of the table (duplicate key, for example). When that happens I do not want any of the previous sets added to the database. I've implemented this with the following code, however, my rollback command doesn't appear to be making a difference. I've used this documentation: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/es/connector-net-examples-mysqltransaction.html
Dim transaction As MySqlTransaction = sqlConnection.BeginTransaction() sqlCommand = New MySqlCommand(insertStr, sqlConnection, transaction) Try
I get the DUPLICATE KEY exception thrown, no Rollback Exception thrown, and every set of values up to duplicate key committed to the database.
if one installer class in my project and in custom action doing some procedure to validate the serial key using user interface editor during setup creation. while installing the set up if the condition is not true the setup in rolling back it is installing.
I have a certain problem with 2 number generators that I have. My problem is that I want them to act individually. To where they seperatly come up with a random number. Mine is from 1-6 for 2 random number to simulate the rolling of two 6 sided dice. The problem that I have is that when I run the program they always generate the same number no matter what that number is. When I step through it step by step while the program is running in the debug screen they come up with a different number. This is in visual basic 2010 express edition.

Coming form too many years of VB6 I have a natural inclination to write my own data access code, etc. rather than using database wizard, etc. Same goes for using simple databinding to recordset rather than managing object collections and tying those to controls
I am finally moving to VB.NET and find myself on a solo project without any team on which to lean, so I have a couple related questions as I try to get my head around the transition. The project is basically a line of business app with a SQL Server back end.
1. Are the data designers/wizards so good now that rolling your own is no longer worth while?
2. Is the data-binding now fast, flexible, and reliable?
3. Can you recommend a good book or robust on-line tutorial that covers this sort of programming? 2008 or 2010 preferred.
I'm working on the code I used to make the animated dice program in my sig. I've done a bit of modding on it so I can re-use parts and it still worked fine, until I tried to put everything in a class so that I could just create new instances of a certain die.
I was heading towards the idea of creating a new instance of the die by a number in a textbox on the main form. Right now I am just working on the basic d6 just to get it up and running.
QuoteAn error occurred creating the form. See Exception.InnerException for details. The error is: The form referred to itself during construction from a default instance, which led to infinite recursion. Within the Form's constructor refer to the form using 'Me.'
I am probably going about this the wrong way all together and could use some help because I can't see how the class is referring to itself at all.
doesn't look much better in the original program, but it actually works in that so if it helps just click the link in my sig to go to the post with the original download.
Since I am going to want all the various dice to Rotate() and Move(), I am wanting these to be generic so that I can use them no matter which die is trying to access it which is why I have tried putting them separately in their own subs and just passing the picture ByVal. I'm not sure if, or how, to put these in classes of their own or not.
And I have looked at just about every dice roller and Yahtzee example I can find, but none of them actually try to rotate the dice like I have, and they pretty much just calculate by using simple random values...which is okay, but does squat when the values are actual objects instead of numbers (if that makes sense).
Nothing I can find tries to put this stuff in classes, which makes it even harder to determine what really should go in the class files themselves. I really just can't find an example that I have been able to get to work for my purpose, nor figure this out on my own.
I need to make a program in VB but I have absolutely no idea what to do or how to write the code for it.The program needs to roll 2 dice comprised of picture boxes (one large picture box with 7 small picture boxes inside it for each) add the two numbers together and then calculate the percentage of each total number per roll.
I'd just like to say please bear with me. I'm a total newbie to coding. I know a little bit of web development but I'm incredibly new to making programs. Teach me and I'll get better, I promise.
I am new to this forum. Please let me know if there is a similar thread i should look at first.I'm working on a dice game and i'm kinda stuck on how to accumulate scores. I have been able to successfully create the rolling of the dice through a function shown below;
For a class project (online course, no instructor handy to get a quick reply from -_-) we are to write a short program using classes and OOP to roll a pair of 6-sided dice 1000 times and count the number of times the total of the two dice is 7. Easy enough, and I've read over a few examples that people have written, but they don't seem to use OOP. I'm not asking you guys to do my homework for me, but I am terribly lost when it comes to using OOP. So far I understand that I should be using a Random() class object to determine the roll itself, and then maybe load each roll into an array and use a loop to check if each element is 7 or not, and then increment a counter? How do I set the range of Random() so my dice rolls are representative of a 6 sided die? It's all a bit overwhelming and I'm not sure what I should do next.
I'm using an Entity Framework context, and sometimes would like to create a transaction so that the client can do multiple changes and then commit/rollback them all together.However, if many changes were made, and SaveChanges() was called multiple times, after which a rollback is called, entities that were commited already, will remain the way they were commited, and would not roll back.Here's how my transaction-relative functions look like:
Public Sub BeginTransaction() Dim context = HttpContext.Current.GetObjectContext() If Not context.Connection.State = ConnectionState.Open Then context.Connection.Open() End If
Not only does the test fail, but it also leave the ObjectContext in an unstable mode, because it still has invalid changes in it.
First let me say yes this is for homework and no, I DO NOT want an answer in code. A simple nudge in the correct direction will suffice.Basically I am attempting to roll the dice with the roll button and then display the number of times a number shows up with a bar graph.
I have a function that checks for wich dice have been rolled and scores them up in the correct boxes, now i want to be able to check the combined scores to see if they equal upto a full house. [code] and then listing every other possible combination, would there be a simpler way of doing it?
I'm using VB2008 express. idea for a D&D application. So I wrote something and it works, but it's not coded like I want. Here's the program if you want to see it in operation: [URL]
Here's the problem I have. I want a message box to pop up if no dice are selected and the user clicks the roll button. So far the only way I have been able to accomplish this is to put the same code under each radio button:
I want to have this code only once. But If I put it outside of the If/Then bracket and no dice are selected, the msgbox pops up but also the buttons that I want to remain hidden until dice are chosen pop up. How do I get the msg box to pop up and stop...don't execute any more code.
Heres' the code so far. trying to keep it relatively simple:
Code: Private Sub RollButton_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles RollButton.Click 'see which radio button is checked and display random number accordingly If TwentySidedRadioButton.Checked Then RolledValueTextBox.Text = GenerateRandom.Next(1, 20)
I am trying to create a Random Number Generator (dice roller) that will dump its results into an open chat window. I was lead towards using DDE but have never used it before. Is this the best method? if not, What is?
On programming assignment without having any real experience in vb. I guess I don't understand subroutines that well. When the program runs it never goes to the computer's turn and does not update the users score either. This assignment is already in but would like to know what is going wrong. Using VB 2010, and this is windows application.

If I'm making an application using two dice images and the button I click changes those two images to random dice - what is the code for that? I have already made my dice images using paint, what is the code I use so that whenever I click the "Roll the Dice" button, it goes to two random dice images?

I'm using Visual Studio Development Server (Visual Basic 2010) and it works fine. Now I've enabled NTLM Authorization because I want to test the website using a different user account. Now when I try to access the website I always get the following error page:
Server Error in '/' Application.
HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden.
Version Information: ASP.NET Development Server 10.0.0.0 .I'm using a test account which is a normal user within our domain. I've already set the access rights in my project folder to Full Access for this user but it does not help.
When I deployed my project on a server, in certain circumstances, I get an error page that indicates I should create a custom error page. I was wondering how exactly I would implement this custom error page the server asks for to give me a precise and helpful message or preferably, how I would get the error to just display on the main page?This is the error message I got below
Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.
Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".
Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.
This error first appear to occur randomly. Steps to recreate:Open Visual Studio and load a solution (some files automatically opened) - this is when the problem occurs Close all open files Restart visual studio and load solution (no issues)Open Exactly the same files again, restart visual studio and load solution so files open automatically (problem occurs!)
However, when trying to narrow it down to a single file (that is automatically opened when the solution is loaded), I couldn't reproduce the problem. Now with all the files open again the problem doesn't occur!!! So it looks like it is fixed - though this happened before and eventually the issue came back.
I think it is to do with one of the user controls with DevExpress controls on it - when the error occurs, the designer displays the error. Though I can't reproduce it at the moment to confirm that.
I got a serious problem. Though I have made my program newly it shows error. I have used 1280,1024 animation only for first form then used 1280,1024 image for every form. Today I was checking then it was showing me error message for 19th & 20th form. If I use On Error Resume Next then it shows error for another form ; if I use same code there in the menu item I mean so that I can get rid of error when I click to show a form it shows another error. First error message is "InvalidOperationException was unhandeled An error occurred creating the form. See Exception.InnerException for details. The error is parameter is not valid." and second error is "OutofMemoryException was unhandled Exception of type 'System.OutOfMemoryException' was thrown". I have noticed it that it doesnt show error message for those form which have few labels and text boxes. It shows error message for those forms which have 1 menu bar, 2 picture boxes(one is 1280,1024 & another is 250,456), 2 group boxes, 40 labels, 3 combo boxes, 38 text boxes & three buttons. Please help me I need to get rid of this problem. Does it mean that I cant use unlimited control there in my form?
I have the following Stored Procedures create or replace PROCEDURE WEB_AC
First one: At some point in the application I have the valor parameter (of the visual Basic Function) as a string with spaces that is something like "some string with spaces". When this happens, the stored procedure don't update the table. If I execute the SP directly in the DB (with SQL Developer) all works fine. I know it has something to do with the string missing some quotes(') but I haven't make it work yet. Some ideas on this?
Second problem: Sometimes, when debuging the application, if I interrupt the execution, I start getting the ORA-24338 'statement handle not executed' error for hours every time I try to execute it again. I believe it has something to do with an open transaction. But honestly, as I'm new in working with Oracle, I really have no idea what the problem could be.
I used error provider tool to display the error when the textbox is empty. when the error message is displayed immediately it is inserting the record into the database.I want to clear the error and then insert. how to take the control to textbox?
