Sorry but I'm not sure I understand the "hits". It looks like you've selected 6 numbers (1, 2, 11, 12, 13, 15). Since just one of those numbers is in column 6 is that mean there is just one hit? In any case please attach your project in a zip file.

Sorry, didn't explain enough
The grid with all the columns hold how much a user would win if 6 spots were chosen.
Don't think that the project will help, but i will attach it. i have not done the selecting of the numbers yet.. this is a Keno game. The grid shows how much a user would win if 6 spots were selected. the game randomly selects 20 numbers of the 80 on the board
In other words If the user selected 6 spots no matter where in the 80 numbers in the grid the
pay would be
3-hits = 2 (3rd-row )in the 6 column)x bet amount (5) = 10
4-hits = 5  (4th-row )x bet amount(5) = 25
5-hits = 34 (5th-row ) x bet amount(5)= 170
6-hits = 375 (5th-row ) x bet amount(5)= 1875
if the user had selected 7 numbers then the winnings would be taken from the 7th column

I have added this sub
It might help to clarify
Private Sub flexCleo_Click()
    Static MAX_SELECTIONS As Integer
    If MAX_SELECTIONS >= 10 Then Exit Sub
    If MAX_SELECTIONS = 3 Then 'less than 3 pays nothing
    'start updating flexstatus with each selection
    End If
    Dim r As Integer
    Dim c As Integer
    r = flexCleo.Row
    c = flexCleo.Col
    flexCleo.Row = r
    flexCleo.Col = c
    flexCleo.CellForeColor = vbYellow
    Set flexCleo.CellPicture = imgSelNotHit.Picture
    MAX_SELECTIONS = MAX_SELECTIONS + 1
End Sub

Sorry that I'm still not getting it. In Command7_Click you have the following code:

With flexStatus
.TextMatrix(1, 0) = 3
.TextMatrix(1, 1) = 10 ' 2 x mBetcredits(5)= 10
.TextMatrix(2, 0) = 4
.TextMatrix(2, 1) = 25 '5 x mBetcredits(5)= 25
.TextMatrix(3, 0) = 5
.TextMatrix(3, 1) = 170 '34 xmBetcredits(5)= 170
.TextMatrix(4, 0) = 6
.TextMatrix(4, 1) = 1875 '375 x mBetcredits(5)= 1875
End With

Open in new window


Why is .TextMatrix(1, 0) = 3?

No problem, because if 3 of the selected 6 gets hit then it pays 2
so 2 x bet(5) = 10

Bottom left button says "SEE PAYS"
In frmCleoPayOut
this is the grid that determines the pays, based on spots selected

Here's an updated project. The changes that I made are marked with
'new

Open in new window

. As far as the question you originally asked, all I did was to update lblMarked as the numbers are picked. I can't do anything else because (and I apologize for this) I still don't understand how a hit is determined. Let's say I select the number 21. Where do I look to see if that's a hit?

Thanks
I guess i am not good at explaining.
This has nothing to do whether a number is hit or not.
I am only trying to show the wins in FlexStatus before the program is ran.
If their numbers are hit by the randomize hey can see how much they win.
If only number 21 is marked that is not enough for any win.
At least 3 numbers have to be selected to win anythingis how m
The left column in gridPayout calculates the number of hits
As you can see columns 1 & 2 hold no payouts

I just noticed that you have Randomize several places in the program. To get the most random results you should just do it once and a good place for it to be in your program is in frmCleo_Form_Load which I've done in the attached. All changes are marked with 'new2. I also changed the BorderStyle of frmCleoPayOut to Fixed Single so that it can't be accidentally resized.

Attached is a zip that displays the 'Hits' and 'Win' numbers.

BTW if you need a routine to calculate the number of hits let me know.

Thanks for all your help.Glad you finally got my poor instructions
I had a major problem with the randomizing numbers, but finally got it fixed.

The program i sent you was old with no OCX'S before the randomize was fixed. That was a major issue for some time.
 I ran your app and it does it, still gotta look at how you did it

Hi MartinLiss
I hope you can answer a few improvements to your code seeing how you understand my poor needs. I will post another question as soon as determine the needs
Example:
 Hits reference the correct wins although the wins are not multiplied by the bet amount (lblBetCredits) and this can change if the bet one is increased.Also the numbers can be selected and unselected by dragging

The first problem is easy to fix. Can you explain "Also the numbers can be selected and unselected by dragging"?

I see that now. I hope you don't mind my saying this (and it may be because I don't understand that grid's purpose) but it seems strange. Let's continue any further discussion in the new thread.
