Parse the letters of the alphabet when a user inputs a word....

I need to create a Windows application that contains a single form. The form will have three controls, a textbox, a button displaying the text Parse and a suitable UI control, preferably scrollable, used to display the results. After entering the text and clicking the Parse button, the program should output the number of times each letter in the alphabet occurs in the textbox. Case sensitivity is not required.

For example, if the user enters baaad as the text and hits the Parse Button, the result control should display:

There are 3 A's
There are 1 B's
There are 0 C's
There are 1 D's
There are 0 E's
There are 0 F's
etc...

Any thoughts?

I'd like it in VB.NET if possible, but C#, VB Script or ASP.NET is fine....

text box is called txtLetterCount, list box named lstLetterCount

This is the click event:
        Dim sABC As String = "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"
        Dim sLetter As String
        Dim iCount As Integer
        For x As Integer = 0 To sABC.Length - 1
            iCount = 0
            sLetter = sABC.Substring(x, 1).ToUpper
            For y As Integer = 0 To Me.txtLetterCount.Text.Trim.Length - 1
                If Me.txtLetterCount.Text.Substring(y, 1).ToUpper = sLetter.ToUpper Then
                    iCount += 1
                End If
            Next
            Me.lstLetterCount.Items.Add("There are " & iCount & Space(1) & sLetter & "'s")
        Next

Ok, I'd like this is VB SCRIPT

Does anyone have any idea of what I'm looking for?

UnifiedISCommented:
You specifically asked for VB.NET.  I coded your routine and it works exactly as you asked.  So, the answer is no, I have no idea what your are looking for.

Ok, sorry, I believe you... how do I call that button clicked event from the button and code I put above...

Do I need to encapsulate the code you wrote with Sub btnControl_onclick() and End Sub?

Unified,

What I'm asking for is the entire page code.. I'm new to VB.NET but not new to VB Script.

Thanks,

I don't know the syntax for the control event methods in vb script but yes, that code goes in the click event of the button.

I'm assuming you are using the designer to place your controls

public class yourformname
 Private Sub btnDrawing_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnDrawing.Click
Dim sABC As String = "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"
        Dim sLetter As String
        Dim iCount As Integer
        For x As Integer = 0 To sABC.Length - 1
            iCount = 0
            sLetter = sABC.Substring(x, 1).ToUpper
            For y As Integer = 0 To Me.txtLetterCount.Text.Trim.Length - 1
                If Me.txtLetterCount.Text.Substring(y, 1).ToUpper = sLetter.ToUpper Then
                    iCount += 1
                End If
            Next
            Me.lstLetterCount.Items.Add("There are " & iCount & Space(1) & sLetter & "'s")
        Next
    End Sub

Do I need a Code Behind Page or can I simply put it on the same page?
