Hi Everyone.

I have been Looking around for a Tutorial on Forms in Visual C++ I found a nice graphical calculator walkthrough for C# but the code for C# and C++ is a little diffrent and I cant get it working in C++.

I am trying to make a Form that takes infermation from a ComboBox(Drop Down). to Calculate somthing later on.

my issue is I am finding it hard to figure out how to get the infermation from the ComboBox hehe.

in C# if i have a comboBox called grav I can just get the infermation I want out of it by using

Grav.Text == 'sting'

I am wanting to do somthing like that in C++

here is what I have coded so far.

private: System::Void Temp_SelectedIndexChanged(System::Object^  sender, System::EventArgs^  e) {
		 }
private: System::Void Atmos_SelectedIndexChanged(System::Object^  sender, System::EventArgs^  e) {
		 }
private: System::Void Gravity_SelectedIndexChanged(System::Object^  sender, System::EventArgs^  e) {
		 }
private: System::Void CAinput_TextChanged(System::Object^  sender, System::EventArgs^  e) {
		 }
private: System::Void CAtext_Click(System::Object^  sender, System::EventArgs^  e) {
		 }
private: System::Void textBox1_TextChanged(System::Object^  sender, System::EventArgs^  e) {
		 }
private: System::Void Calc_Click(System::Object^  sender, System::EventArgs^  e) {
			 if (Gavity.Text == 'Heavy' || 'Normal' || 'Low'){
				 if (Atmos.Text == 'Gaseous' || 'Noxious' || 'Terran'){
					 if (Temp.Text == 'Blistering' || 'Frozer' || 'Temperate'){
						 if (Gravity.Text == 'Heavy'){
							 gravholder = 0.5;
						 }
						 if (Gravity.Text == 'Normal'){
							 gravholder = 1;
						 }
						 if (Gravity.Text == 'Low'){
							 gravholder = 0.75;
						 }
						 if (Atmos.Text == 'Gaseous'){
							 atmosholder = 0.5;
						 }
						 if (Atmos.Text == 'Noxious'){
							 atmosholder = 0.75;
						 }
						 if (Atmos.Text == 'Terran'){
							 atmosholder = 1;
						 }
						 if (Temp.Text == 'Blistering'){
							 tempholder = 0.5;
						 }
						 if (Temp.Text == 'Frozen'){
							 tempholder = 0.75;
						 }
						 if (Temp.Text == 'Temperate'){
							 tempholder = 1;
						 }
					 }
				 }
			 }
		 }

as you can see what im am trying to do is take out the string the user selects and attach a multyplier to it. Then after that i am going to run it through some calculations to get me an awnser.

If some one could help me i would be very greatful.

Thanks,
Jordan

>>if (Gavity.Text == 'Heavy' || 'Normal' || 'Low'){
That isn't a c++ legal statement, manage or unmanaged. if( Gavity.Text == "Heavy" || Gavity.Text == "Normal" || Gavity.Text == "Low"){ I created a simple Forms application with a combo box and a text box, then copied the selected item in the combo box into the tex box. Works perfectly, so you should be able to adapt it to your problem. The last few lines of the code below is only what you will probably need. I just posted the whole file just in case you need it.

Thanks for the Help. And the correction on the line of code i messed up on :).

I am going to try what you have done and see if i can link it with it all. I have never created a windows form aplication in C++ before so this is a little new to me.

anyway im am very greatful.

kind regards,
Jordan

ok i suck :P. i just dont know how to use it in C++. i have tried loads of ways now. I'm just not sure how to get it working I keep getting this error message:

1>c:\users\jordan\documents\visual studio 2010\projects\ss calculator\ss calculator\Form1.h(323): error C2446: '==' : no conversion from 'int' to 'System:: String ^'
1> No user-defined-conversion operator available, or
1> No standard conversion exists from the boxed form of the arithmetic type to the target type

thats when I tried to use strcmp which didnt work eighter. sorry if my code looks like a mess its a bit jumpy lol. what im wanting to do is take the info from the comboBox and place a veribable with it. so when the user finishes selecting the 3 drop downs. it will take the string inputs. Then take what ever multiplier that was put with the string(i have tried to do this with if statments). then after that it will times the multiplyer's togeather then times that by 100 (havent codded that in yet becuase there not point till i can get the infermation).

im really tempted to just make it in C# but I want to have a better understanding in C++ becuase I am more likly to be working in that field in the future.

here is the code so far (and yes its bad i know :P)

Parts of this code will never execute. In fact, only the first if statement could ever be accepted.

if (select == 'Heavy'){
   if (select ==  'Normal'){
      if (select == 'Low'){	
         if (select == 'Heavy'){	
            gravholder = 0.5;	
         }			
         if (select == 'Normal'){	
            gravholder = 1;		
	}		
	if (select == 'Low'){
	   gravholder = 0.75;	
	}			
      }				
   }			
}

try to use 'else if' statements along with just if. For example:

if(select == 'Heavy')
   gravHolder = 0.5;
else if(select == 'Normal')
   gravHolder = 1;
else if(select == 'Low')
   gravHolder = 0.75;

I note you've done similar things throughout seperate blocks of code. Basically, if the first if statement of a block isn't satisfied, the compiler wont look any deeper into the code at all, it'll simply skip to the close parenthesis }...
