I am in school and just learning and I am completely stumped on this lesson.
I have determined that I will be using an array
dim playingBoard(2,2) as string - 9 possible places to put an x or an o
dim x as integer
dim o as integer
I have a total of 9 textbox's
textBox1 - textBox9
have a Sub for each textBox
Private Sub TextBox1_TextChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles TextBox1.TextChanged
I did this so that when an x or an o was typed into the textbox it would get the focus and I could do something with it.
I want to do a private function that checks to see if I have 3 x's or 3 o's in a row based on the placement of the x and o's. So I created a lookForWinner Sub to do the function for me.
ie. if textBox1 and textBox2 and textBox3 have o's in them then messagebox.show("o's win")
Can anyone help me with this? I am just missing something and I just don't understand why I can't get the code to do what I want.
