Thanks for the help i am trying to expand-modify your code
we have based the code on value of gcurCleoNewGameCredits instead of the value in lblcredit
but actually lblcredit could be any value even negative
Example:
Opening a saved file fills the value of lblcredit(could also be negative) and be credit or currency
each time the program is ran the amount of the bet is subtracted from lblCredit.
this is where i am having a problem
Clicking cmdbetmode that changes the denomation should update lblCredit.
Easy if lblCredit is in currency(no change needed)
if lblcredit is in credit mode is where i am having difficulty.
how can this be written ?

I added a command button called cmdPlay and added this code.

Private Sub cmdPlay_Click()

    Select Case mintBetMode
        Case 0
            gcurCleoNewGameCredits = gcurCleoNewGameCredits - 0.01
        Case 1
            gcurCleoNewGameCredits = gcurCleoNewGameCredits - 0.02
        Case 2
            gcurCleoNewGameCredits = gcurCleoNewGameCredits - 0.05
        Case 3
            gcurCleoNewGameCredits = gcurCleoNewGameCredits - 0.1
        Case Else
            gcurCleoNewGameCredits = gcurCleoNewGameCredits - 0.25
    End Select
    lblCredit.Caption = Format(gcurCleoNewGameCredits, "currency")
End Sub

Open in new window


Is that what you want?

No cannot use gcurCleoNewGameCredits

I tried this to no avail
Private Sub cmdbetmode_Click()
    Dim value As Currency
    Dim lblCreditValue As String
    lblCreditValue = lblCredit' get the value of lblCredit
    ChangeBetMode
   
 If mintCreditMode = 0 Then 'credit
    value = Val(lblCredit)
    lblCredit = DetermineCredits
 Else
    value = CCur(lblCredit)
    lblCredit = DetermineCurrency(value, mintBetMode)
    lblCredit = Format(lblCredit, "currency")
 End If
End Sub
I will elaborate:

User starts a new game and lblCredit = gcurCleoNewGameCredits = $1.00
user makes a bet  and makes a few runs and each run the amount is subtracted from lblCredit.
lblcredit now reads in 1 cent mode 90 or $.90 in currency.
now click lblcredit
Now click cmdbetmode to change the denomination to 2 cents
lblcredit should read 45 & $.90 in currency

That seems to be exactly what the attached project does.

Start the app - lblCredit reads $1.00
Click "Play" 10 times - lblcredit now reads $0.90
Click lblCredit - lblCredit now reads 90
Click cmdBetMode which changes it to 2 cents - lblCredit reads 45 and $0.90

The variable gcurCleoNewGameCredits can only  be used for a new game all other times.
the value of lblcredit needs to be used.

Almost
this is how it should work:
in 1 cent mode
lblcredit reads $1.00 and 100 in credit mode
in credit mode click cmdbetmode should display in lblcredit 50 (2 cent mode)
Click cmdbetmode again lblCredit should display 20 (5 cent mode)
Click cmdbetmode again lblCredit should display 10 (10 cent mode)
Click cmdbetmode again lblCredit should display 4 (25 cent mode)

Why? (this is a response to post ID 40004664)

In the test app we have this.

Private Sub Form_Load()
'new
'gcurCleoNewGameCredits = "$1.00"
gcurCleoNewGameCredits = 1

lblCredit = Format(gcurCleoNewGameCredits, "currency")
End Sub

Open in new window


What can't line 4 be changed to get last game's value from the ini or text file you are using to save the values?

Thats almost it
Private Sub cmdbetmode_Click()
ChangeBetMode
'new
lblCredit.Caption = DetermineCredits
End Sub
  It displays  correctly in lblcredit, but switches it to credits if in currency
