I am trying to convert English Distance to metric Distances.

I created two text boxes and an Accept Button. I want to input the English measurments in one box and having it output in Metric from the other text box. What am i doing wrong? can some one help me solve this?

Public Class Form1

    Private Sub Accept_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Accept.Click
        Dim MtrcOutput As Double
        Dim Miles As Double
        Dim Kilometers As Double
        Miles = 3.5
        Kilometers = Miles * 1.6

        MtrcOutput = CDbl(EngInput.Text) * Kilometers

    End Sub

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

    End Sub
End Class

Perhaps this will help....

    Private Sub Accept_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Accept.Click

        MtrcOutput.Text = CDbl(EngInput.Text) * 1.6

    End Sub

This assumes the Imperial measurement TextBox is called EngInput and the Metric Output TextBox is called MtrcOutput.

Wayne

you have to see what the names for the 2 textboxes are. you can see that directly in the designer, click on the textboxes and see the property Name. remember them, and modify the following code with those names. i am using name "textbox1" for English input, and "textbox2" for Metric output.

Private Sub Accept_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Accept.Click
'notice i removed the line: Dim MtrOutput as Double
        Dim Miles As Double
        Dim Kilometers As Double
        Miles = Convert.ToDouble(TextBox1.Text)
        Kilometers = Miles * 1.6

        TextBox2.Text = Kilometers.ToString()

End Sub
