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 new package called Awaiting instructions, and add 3 script tasks to it:

3 script tasks

The bottom two tasks are just fillers - they won't actually do anything.

You can get the Failure line by adding a normal connector, then right-clicking on it to change its status.

Write script in your Are you feeling lucky? task to ask the following question:

Question asked

The question your message box should display.


You can show this question using code similar to this:

// ask user their state of mind

var answer = MessageBox.Show(

"Are you feeling lucky?",





// return success or failure

if (answer == DialogResult.Yes) { ...

Not feeling lucky?  If you answer No to the question, you should go down the Failure path (your script should set its result to Failure, not Success):

Failure path

Of course, if you are feeling more positive and answer Yes, you'll be taken down the left-hand path!  Is your glass half-full or half-empty?

When you've tested both paths, close the package down.
