Really this is all a list. I would like to make it not seem like a list.

So basically you want to replace that ~80 line long text substitution with something better?

Try using a database... solution found, have a great day :)

If that's not what you wanted, then how about including more details and less redundant code in your next post :twisted: might help get responses and cut down on misunderstanding.

If your not going to add/remove items then you could hard code it as a dictionary.
Otherwise you'll need a storage method that allows add, delete and query..database being the most powerful, or a textfile with relevant methods being an alternative.

If you just want to tidy up the code you have you could start by looking at a switch.

Agree with both of you but unless GAME wants to be more specific I guess we'll never know what he's looking to do anyway :P

You could simply create an xml that looks like this:

<cars>
  <car number="76705F6E736E5F736B796C696E" name="Skyline" />
  [...]
</cars>

And then simply iterate over your car elements and break if found.

XDocument xdoc = XDocument.Load("cars.xml");

foreach(XElement x in xdoc.Descendants("car"))
{
    if(x.Attribute("number").Value = Text)
    {
           txtType.Text = x.Attribute("name").Value;
           break;
    }
}
