hey guys,

i've got an 'if' statement that works but i have to change it into a 'loop' statement. i originally chose 'if' because it's easier for me to understand but... it's gotta be a loop.

so if anyone could, what would be the best loop style and how would i set it up?

If chancecount <= 8 Then

            If isConverted = True Then

                If chancecount <= 8 AndAlso usernum < randomnum Then
                    chancecount = chancecount + 1
                    Me.xAnswerLabel.Text = "Oops, too low. Go a little higher"

                ElseIf chancecount <= 8 AndAlso 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 If

        ElseIf chancecount > 8 Then
            Me.xAnswerLabel.Text = "We are so sorry but your chances have expired. Don't fret, try with us again anytime. Just exit this application and restart the program. But remember... The number will never be the same! Happy Hunting!"

        End If

that's what i'm thinking but my professor's like... "I want you to use a loop"

and i don't see how to make this work from a loop at all.

Hi,

Where are you writing this code ..? (Which event)
and is there any other code before this line ..:
If chancecount <= 8 Then ..?
I guess, there must be a Loop there..
So which IF, you want to change to the loop? (there are 3 IF's)

well he's saying the whole code (as far as the if statements go) should be a loop but i'm not seeing how to change it.

Exit Do

                End If

        Loop

Loop Until chancecount <= 8

debug that according to your need...hope it helps...
