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 frmMaleOomphFactor.cs in the above folder to import it into your project, then edit Program.cs to make this the default form.  When you run your application, you should now see this:

Oomph factor form

When you change either of the combo box values, the quotient should update.

Uncomment the commented-out code behind the form (these are event-handlers which are triggered to run whenever you change the value in either combo box).

Write the RecalculateDesirabilityCoefficient routine to work out desirability as follows:

  Clooney Michael Osborne
Ferrari Sex god Sex god Sex god
Citroen Good husband? Good husband? Avoid
Slowly Good husband? Avoid Avoid

Your program should then update the value of the red label (ie update the value of lblDesirabilityQuotient.Text).

Wise Owl do not recommend using this as a basis for partner selection (although you could do worse).

Run your form to check that the right message is displayed in all cases!
