I am trying to write a program that will tell me how many calories are in a certain number of eggs, cups of flour, cups of sugar, etc. I have a set number of calories for each of the items (i.e. each egg has 72 calories), but I ask the user to input in a textbox how many of each item the recipe calls for. After they input the quantity, I put the item they chose into a listbox followed by a hyphen and the quantity (i.e. eggs (each) - 2). What I need help with is being able to get the computer to determine where the hyphen is in that String and then reading whatever is following the hyphen into a Double value. Is this even possible?
