Hi, I'm having problems trying to figure out how to divide the value in a text box.
One textbox is named Purchase Price
I want to take that number and get it divided by 5. That answer will be the down payment.
I declared a const for downpayment for 5.
I did the ToDouble for the purchase price as well for downpayment. I'll put what I have down so far for the coding. I'm just having trouble finding my error.
Imports System.Convert Public Class Form1 Private Const DOWN_PAYMENT As Double = 5 Private Sub btnExit_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnExit.Click Me.Close() End Sub Private Sub btnClear_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnClear.Click txtPurchasePrice.Text = "" txtInterestRate.Text = "" txtDownPayment.Text = "" End Sub Private Sub btnCalculate_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnCalculate.Click Dim PurchasePrice As Double Dim InterestRate As Double Dim DownPayment As Double PurchasePrice = ToDouble(txtPurchasePrice.Text) InterestRate = ToDouble(txtInterestRate.Text) / 100 DownPayment = ToDouble(txtDownPayment.Text) DownPayment = txtPurchasePrice.Text / 5 DownPayment = System.Math.Abs(DownPayment) End Sub End Class
If anyone could help me out please.
