Visual Basic 2008, Dim help needed.
« on: October 07, 2009, 12:40:41 PM »
I`ll go straight to the point.

When the program starts, it does this:

Code: Visual Basic [Select]
  1. Dim checkedboxes As Integer = 0

I got 5 checkboxes, an I  want that the program adds 1 to the dimmed integer if some of those checkboxes are checked.

Like this:

[ ]
[ x ]
[ ]
[ x ]
[ x ]

3 boxes checked.

Next thing I want to do is for program to create a msgbox which says something like "you checked +checkedboxes boxes"

So what should I do now?

*EDIT*
I fixed it a bit, but its acts weirdly now:

Code: Visual Basic [Select]
  1. Button1.onclick
  2.      If checkbox1.checked then
  3.               checkedboxes = checkedboxes + 1
  4. End if
  5.               MsgBox ("you checked" + (checkedboxes) + "boxes")

If it`s done like that, the program starts to count letters from "you checked" thingy and makes messagebox which says me for example Y if 1 box checked and O if 2 boxes checked and U if 3 boxes checked, so what could be wrong now?

P.S Those forums you suggested, takes months to get answer + I`d rather ask here =]

I know this is just stupid ask, but I really don`t get the idea of how to do it :/
Please help, thanks.
