I have a list of latin roots and the deffinitions i wish to make a small program that will show the definition and have you enter the root. What i got so far is a text box a lable and a command button what i want to happen is when i click the command button it will put a random definition in the label and have you enter the correct root for that definition into the text block. I will need to do this for about 100-200 roots. I just need the basic code then i can extend it to how many roots i have.

Please give me the Visual Basic 3.0 codeing

Thanks

'This example uses two listbox's with visible prop set to false 'the list's are loaded with values on form load
'you could optionly fill them any way you want

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim mynum As Integer
Randomize
mynum = Int((6 * Rnd) + 1)
List1.ListIndex = mynum
List2.ListIndex = mynum
Label1.Caption = List1.List(mynum)
Text1.Text = ""
Text1.SetFocus
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()
mystring = "definition"
For i = 1 To 6
    List1.AddItem mystring & CStr(i)
Next

mystring = "root"
For i = 1 To 6
    List2.AddItem mystring & CStr(i)
Next

End Sub

Private Sub Text1_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)

If KeyCode = 13 Then
    If Text1.Text = List2.Text Then
     Label1.Caption = "Right"
    Else
     Label1.Caption = "wrong"
    End If
End If
End Sub

>I have a list of latin roots and the deffinitions
What is this list?
If you send a few lines of it I will show you how to extract values from it and add them to listboxes.

If I understand, you have to have roots and defs somewhere, in a file, database, array, collection, etc.
If you had files (roots.txt and defs.txt) you would open them and put values in listboxs


Or do you want to fill the boxes at design time?(painfully slow work)
 
btw the line in above code should be
mynum = Int((List1.ListCount * Rnd))

not
mynum = Int((6 * Rnd) + 1)
