Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

To avoid having to draw the form needed for this exercise, right-click on the name of your project in Solution Explorer then choose Add --> Existing Item... (you can also press SHIFT + ALT + A to do the same thing).

Choose only the file called frmButtonCounter.cs in the above folder to import it into your project, then edit Program.cs to make this the default form. 

Attach code to the button so that it counts the number of times that it has been clicked:

Counting number of clicks

Here someone has clicked on the button 5 times since starting this application.  Note that you'll need to make the label called lblAnswer visible in your code too.


To get this to work you'll need to create an integer variable to hold the number of clicks - you might like to think where!

When this is working, stop your application and then close down any forms that you have open.
