Hello Community,

I am a beginner in C#. I would like to create a program that can do something like I am about to describe below:

4 Check boxes: A, B and C, D
2 list boxes: list box E (e1, e2, e3) and list box F(f1, f2, f3)
2 or more groups of random words for example group 1 would have dog, cat, bird and group 2 would have fish, lizard, turtle.
1 text box

If a user checks A plus C and chooses lets say e1 and f1, the program will pick a random word for one of the groups of random words and will display the word inside the text box.

I don't see how the checkboxes and listboxes should be affecting the random choice from the groups of words.  Can you explain in more detail?...possibly with an example?

ok...mm..let me see...

first set of check boxes: I am a Male |  Female.
second set of check boxes: you're a Male |  Female.

first list box: I am a turtle, tiger, fish
second list box: you're a lion, eagle, frog

First group of random words: bite, swim, crawl
Second group of random words: fly, run, glide

So if a user picks, male on the first set of check boxes and female on the second set of check boxes, tiger on the first list box and lion on second the code will pick a random word from the first group of words.

But what will be the logic for choosing group of random words?  on selecting one check-box of first checkbox list-1 and from checkbox list-2 there should be some condition for combinations and permutations of all checkbox lists and list boxes.

Yeah...I still don't see how the selections affect the random portion.  Do you simply want to combine what has been selected in the first set of controls with a random word from the first group?...and a random word from the second group to go along with the second set of controls?

Male, Tiger, {Random word from: bite, swim, crawl}
Female, Lion, {Random word from: fly, run, glide}

There is no logic, I just want to find out if it possible to do.

Okay, here's another try

Male - Tiger | Female - Lion  | bite
I would like to tell it to go and get me a random word from group 1 and show it in a textbox.

Female - Turtle | Male - Frog | fly
Go get me a random word from group 2 and show it in a textbox.

To gery128 - 'condition for combinations and permutations of all checkboxes and list boxes'
Thats what I am trying to do or figure out. What would a sample code look like for something like that? And if I am going to search for something like in MSDN, would it be called combinations and permutations statement?

Thanks!

Maybe this will get you started:
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace WindowsFormsApplication1
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private Random R = new Random();
        private List<string> Group1 = new List<string>();
        private List<string> Group2 = new List<string>();

        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            Group1.Add("bite");
            Group1.Add("swim");
            Group1.Add("crawl");

            Group2.Add("fly");
            Group2.Add("run");
            Group2.Add("glide");
        }

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            textBox1.Text = Group2[R.Next(0, Group2.Count)];
        }

        private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            textBox2.Text = Group2[R.Next(0, Group2.Count)];
        }

    }
}
