Writing A Battleship Game For A Final Project For School?

May 5, 2010

I am in the process of writing a battleship game for a final project for school. I get what to do for the most part, but need a little jump start for writing the "ships" class. Does anyone have any suggestions?
So far my game starts with a dynamic array of buttons, but as of now they don't do anything. I need to be able to have the user place ships in places and have the computer randomly generate positions.

VS 2008 Trivia Game - Can't Just Put "MsgBox("Correct")" Under One Of The Multple Choice Buttons

Oct 7, 2009

User of Virtual Basic, as we really just started programming in my Computer Programming class yesterday. I figured that I could use Visual Basic to make a trivia game of some sort to study for various classes and stuff.

The game is set up in four categories based on topic, which each has 10 questions. I have no problem linking one form to another here. However, each question is multiple-choice. To get to each question, you need to click on a button, which changes the label text and all that. The problem I'm running into here is that I need a way to get a message to pop up saying "correct" or "incorrect" for each question. Being that each question will have a different answer, I can't just put "MsgBox("Correct")" under one of the multple choice buttons. I've Googled this, and I've found something with setting values to each button, which I tried, but I must have done it incorrectly.

School Project Music Maker Kinda

Dec 9, 2009

So I am supposed to be choosing a final project for my visual basic 2008 class. I cannot help but remember an old high school classmate from web design class who made a program that used the speaker built into the motherboard (or whatever makes the start up beep when you turn computer on) to time the beeps to play simple songs. It was very funny and amusing and I was wondering if anyone had seen something similar or knows how to go about making one?

School Project Where A Picture Is Covered By 48 Buttons

Mar 15, 2011

So as the message says i believe im having a problem when declaring an array as control. The background:Im doing a school project where a picture is covered by 48 buttons. When a user clicks a button, they are asked a question. If they answer write, the button disappears until the whole image is displayed.

Im using each buttons visible property to hide it. Now that i think about it, i should probably un-enable it after a question is answered correctly.anyway, I keep getting a NullReferenceException when making the visible set to false. Any suggestions would be awesome. I have already created all the buttons and named them Q1-Q48.

Writting & Reading To/from The Registry?

I was just playing around with trying to set up a datacontract that returned a class that had a property that took/returned an enum value. I could set the class up so that it worked great, but the service contract seen by the client had the enum turned into a string, of all things. Had it been turned into an Integer, that would have been useable, but not a string

HangMan Game - Project That Has A Graphical Interface ?

Apr 20, 2009

I am working on this hangman project that has a graphical interface where the user has 2 options either guess the entire phrase or use a combo box to guess letters. I have the guess text box working but I can't for the life of me figure out why it is not working correctly with the combo box. The following is my entire code for the project. I have it setup to show me which phrase it randomly selected but when ever I pick a letter in that phrase it doesn't fill it in or anything. I'm thinking it is an issue with my loops.

I highlighted the section where the problem is occurring.

Public Class frmHang
Dim strWord(10) As String 'array of answer cchoices
Dim strAnswer As String 'the correct answer

VS 2010 Creating A Game Of Pairs As A Project

Apr 26, 2012

I'm having a little trouble creating a game of pairs as a project.Basically I've got to the point where I can start a game, layout a bunch of cards in a grid, 6x6, and then have a way of matching the pairs together. First of all I used a For loop to assign the cards into a two dimensional array. They are pictureboxes however so when a user clicks on 2 cards, checking them to see if they match has become confusing. I've tried to stuff like this for example but it's not working: [code] This doesn't work because it can't compare the picture boxes stored to the array slot. Is there any clever person with a way around this? Or that can think of a way to compare them. The pictureboxes kinda need to stay like there though :/

Game Programming :: Refering To A 2nd Imported Project, Within The Same Solution?

Jan 21, 2011

i Imported 2 programs that I made into one solution. I made a "BIG" main menu (new windows form), put two buttons. I code one button to open up the first project (that works fine). I code the other button to open the project I imported, however it says that the name is not declared. Am I doing something wrong? here is my code for the "BIG" main menu:


now only the "Original name of first project" appears to be not declared, if I delete "Original name of first project", then "the project I imported"is not declared and so forth. Note: These are not the exact names I called my forms. I'm just trying to explain it clearer.

Aid In A Technology Classroom At A Middle School?

Nov 10, 2009

I am an aid in a technology classroom at a middle school. They have 12 computers that must be logged into everyday. The teacher has given me the password to log in the computers for the students, because he doesn't want them to know it. The teacher's computer is linked to the other 12. I was wondering if it is possible to develop a program that has a list of the 12 computers with 2 fields, one for user name and password. These for each computer. You would enter the username and password and it would log in the computer. This would be done from the teacher's computer. It would make it a lot easier than having to go around and log in those computers. [URL]..

Make A VB Program For A School Assignment?

May 20, 2011

I have to make a visual basic program for a school assignment. I am an absolute beginner at it though, but am willing to learn.I have to make an income calculator for farmers that make giant turnips.

So basically:

1. If the turnip weighs less than 350kg, the farmer will receive $2 per kilo
2. If the turnip weighs 390 or more, the farmer gets $1.50 per kilo MINUS $180 for a maintenance fee.
3. If the turnip weighs between 350 and 389kg, it has to be sent to a paddock that costs $25 per week for lease. Turnips loose 1% of their mass per week in this paddock. When the turnip gets below 350kg it can be exported. As ships depart weekly, turnips may drop a bit below 350Kg before departure.

Create a profit calculator for the turnip farmer for a list of cattle weights.

Functional Requirements: oEnter the weight of each cow into an array oCalculate the income from each cow and store in another array oAdd up the values in the array and display total income.

Position In Class/stream In A School?

May 21, 2012

I am working on an Examination system for a secondary school. The system captures the marks of students of the subjects they take and stores them in the database. from there, it has to compute the grades of marks for each subject that a student takes and get the position of that student in the stream and in the class.

For the gradeing part of it, I have already made it, my problem is to get the positions of students and show them on the rdlc report.

The word class and stream here, I mean;

The school has six classes, senior one/form one  TO senior 6/form 6 as classes and each class(form) for example senior one has 4 streams. By streams, I mean; Students  are grouped into different streams but under one class(level/form).

for example; form1 A TO Form 1 D that is one class/form secondary level. form 2 also has four streams ( form 2A, 2B, 2C, 2D) and so on. So a student can be number one in his stream but if the marks are compared to other streams of thesame level, he is number 3. it is indicated on the report as Position in Stream 1...........Class 3

.net - School Assignment: Examples Of Different Types Of Applications?

Nov 18, 2010

I'm a student taking a beginner computer programming course. My teacher told me to use this website if I have any questions. The lesson I have just studied is about the different types of applications in VB.NET. My assignment asks me to "Give at least five examples of each type of application." I'm supposed to do a web search to find these. The different types of applications I'm supposed to find examples for are: Console, Window, Web, Class Library, Control Library, and Smart Device. Then I'm supposed to provide a description or a screen shot of each example.

I hope my question isn't considered too simple for this forum, but I don't know what else to do! I've spent a long time trying to search for examples myself and I can't seem to find anything.
