Hi

what am i missing


 ArrayList parts = new ArrayList(parts);

 Gives me this error
 The type or namespace name 'ArrayList' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)      




  private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {

            if (txtA.TextLength == 0)
                {
                    MessageBox.Show("manglende værdi for siden A");
                return ;
                }
            if (txtB.TextLength == 0)
                {
                    MessageBox.Show("manglende værdi for siden B");
                return ;
                }
            if (txtC.TextLength == 0)
                {
                    MessageBox.Show("manglende værdi for siden C");
                return ;
                }
                {
                ArrayList parts = new ArrayList(parts);
                parts.Add (txtA.Text);
                parts.Add (txtB.Text);
                parts.Add (txtC.Text);
                }
                 {                    
                     if (parts.Count == 3)
                         

                    switch (parts.size())  
                    {
                    case 1:
                         // it's equilateral
                         lblResult.Text=("equilateral");
                         break;
                    case 2:
                         // isoceles
                         lblResult.Text=("isoceles");
                         break;
                    case 3:
                         // scalene
                        lblResult.Text=("scalene");
                         break;
                    default:
                         lblResult.Text = ("Not a triangle");
                   }
               }
        }

you need to either fully quantify the class:
 Sytem.Collections.ArrayList parts = new Sytem.Collections.ArrayList(parts);

or add the following in the top of the file in the "using" part:
using System.Collections;


note however that:
 ArrayList parts = new ArrayList(parts);  
must be wrong, as you are, according to that code, trying to initialize the variable with itself ????

this should work better:
 ArrayList parts = new ArrayList();
