Visual C# | C# variables exercise | Use variables to show the length of a phrase
This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
You can learn how to do this exercise if you attend the course listed below!
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 frmWordLength.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:
The idea is to attach code to the two buttons so that they do what they say they will!
Attach code to the button on the left so that it creates two variables:
|phrase||string||The text typed into the box|
|phraseLength||int||The number of characters in the phrase|
Get the button to display two messages in succession:
|The first message||The second message|
Use Length to show the length of your text. Note that this is a property, not a method, and so doesn't need any brackets after it.
Use Replace to replace every space in the phrase with an empty string ("") to get the second button to work:
Clicking on the second button should display this message for the text typed in here.
You get bonus points for using the Trim() method to remove any leading or trailing spaces from your text before finding out how long it is!
Close down any files that you have open. The preceding sentence had 40 characters in, if you're interested!
