hey all,

i've got a new issue with a program that allows the user to enter a number and then that number is checked against a random number that the PC chooses. Here's the code:

Private Sub xCalcButton_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles xCalcButton.Click
        'show the random number
        Dim randomnum As Integer
        Dim randomGenerator As New Random

        randomnum = randomGenerator.Next(1, 51) 'give the number

        Dim userent As String

        Dim usernum As Integer
        Dim chancecount As Integer = 0

        Dim isConverted As Boolean


        userent = Me.xEnterTextBox.Text
        'go as long as they enter a number
        Do While userent <> String.Empty
            'convert the sales number
            isConverted = Integer.TryParse(userent, usernum)

            If isConverted And usernum < randomnum Then
                chancecount = chancecount + 1
                Me.xAnswerLabel.Text = "Oops, too low. Go a little higher"

            ElseIf usernum > randomnum Then
                chancecount = chancecount + 1
                Me.xAnswerLabel.Text = "Whoa! Whoa! You're guessing a little too high now."
            End If

        Loop

        If usernum = randomnum Then
            Me.xAnswerLabel.Text = "Congratulations, you have selected the correct number which is, " + Convert.ToString(usernum)
        Else

        End If


    End Sub

I know i'm on the brink but what exactly am I missing? should i make the random constant or something?

okay,

forget the above. I got it working with this except:

Private Sub xCalcButton_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles xCalcButton.Click

        'show the random number        
        Dim randomnum As Integer
        Dim randomGenerator As New Random

        randomnum = randomGenerator.Next(1, 51) 'give the number

        Dim usernum As Integer
        Dim chancecount As Integer = 0

        Integer.TryParse(Me.xEnterTextBox.Text, usernum)


        If usernum < randomnum Then
            chancecount = chancecount + 1
            Me.xAnswerLabel.Text = "Oops, too low. Go a little higher"

        ElseIf usernum > randomnum Then
            chancecount = chancecount + 1
            Me.xAnswerLabel.Text = "Whoa! Whoa! You're guessing a little too high now."

        ElseIf usernum = randomnum Then
            Me.xAnswerLabel.Text = "Congratulations, you have selected the correct number which is, " + Convert.ToString(usernum)

        End If


    End Sub

the only thing now is that the pc won't keep the number...should i create the random variable when the program loads?

okay...just solved this myself...

lol, this forum is very therapeutic haha.
