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.

Create a form called frmStarSignBasic, allowing you to input a star sign's details:

Your form should include tooltips, as shown here

Make sure that the following work:

  • Pressing TAB takes you through the controls in the correct order
  • The accelerator keys work correctly (for example, ALT + S takes you to the Star sign textbox
  • The ENTER and ESC keys choose the correct default buttons

Attach code to the buttons so that the Cancel button closes down the form, and the Show button displays what you have typed in - for example:

Check that the tab order of your form is correct, then save it and close it down.
