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 by 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 frmPreference.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:

Choosing dating preference

You can click on the drop arrows to choose your ideal date.


Add code to the Cancel button so that clicking on it closes the form.

Prefix your command with this to refer to the current form.

Now add code to the OK button so that clicking on it displays the choice you've made (use the ToLower() method to convert the Text properties of the combo boxes to lower case):

Showing choice made

What you'll see if you're a woman looking for someone with some backbone.


When you've finished, close down your form, saving any changes.
