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.

Add the frmNewHeart form in the folder above into your project (or work with a copy you already have).

Add an ErrorProvider control to your form, and rename this as errTypical.

Code the Validating event of the name and age text boxes so that:

  • you see an error next to the name if it has been left blank; and
  • you see an error next to the age if it is blank, or not an integer

Test out your ErrorProvider control - here's what you should see if you leave the age blank:
