Visual Basic | Passing arguments exercise | Process the data in a form to find how desirable someone is!
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 on the relevant Wise Owl classroom training course (sadly for the moment only in the UK).
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.
Press CTRL + D to add the file called frmMaleOomphFactor.vb from the above folder into your project (or right click on the project and choose to add it as an existing item).
Change your project's properties to make this the default form for your project. When you run your project, you should see this:
The idea is that the desirability quotient updates when you change what you look like or what you drive.
Double-click on each of the two combo boxes when designing the form to create event-handlers to handle the SelectedIndexChanged event (this fires when anyone changes the value in a combo box).
In each of the event-handlers you've created call the same RecalculateDesirabilityCoefficient subroutine. Now write this subroutine to work out the DQ of the male concerned as follows:
|Ferrari||Sex god||Sex god||Sex god|
|Citroen||Good husband?||Good husband?||Avoid|
The subroutine should then update the lblDesirabilityQuotient label to display the correct desirability quotient.
We don't recommend that you use this shallow and mercenary way to assess the suitability of a partner (although the algorithm isn't a bad one).
Run your application, and check that it displays the correct DQ for all possible cases.
