Hi

I am creating a quiz of 10 questions, using a string array. When the user clicks on the next button the next question follows. How do i set it up that when the user comes towards the end of the array the previous button changes to finish.

I know how to change the name and the event handler for that button, but just cant work out how to get the code in to say its the end of the array so lets change the function of that button

Thanks for any help

You don't need to change the event handler associated with the button click, just change the text of the button. In the event handler compare the button's text with "Next" and do whatever Next is supposed to do. When near the end of the array change the text to "Finish". If the button's text is "Finish" do whatever Finish is supposed to do. It's just a simple if statement inside the button's click event handler.

if button.text == "Next"
then
    // do whatever Next is supposed to do
    if counter == array-size then
       change button.text to "Finish"
else
// Button.txt == "Finish"
   // do whatever Finish is supposed to do
end if

ok here is the code i have done so far this quiz. I have created 4 arrays. One that stores the questions, one with the answers, and the other with the correct answers, the other with the users answers.

sorry for all the comments on the code but using comments helps me understand what i am doing when i take a period of absence from the program

Sounds stupid, now what would the code be for testing it. I know it's an if statement but I can't work it.

Thanks for your help so far

ok so i have tried this

if (Question[i] == "Which hard drive format, restricts single file sizes to 4GB or less?")
            {
                //Change name of start quiz button and create new event handler for button
                Next.Text = "Finish"; //changes name of Previous button to Finish
                Next.Click -= this.StartQuiz_Click; //unsubcribed orginal event handler of "Next"
                Next.Click += this.Finish_Click; //create new event handler renamed button "Finish" 
            }

but i get an error message when i get to 9th question "An unhandled exception of type 'System.IndexOutOfRangeException' occurred in Computer System Quiz.exe"

Whats the problem or what have i done wrong

Thanks

Change line 18 to this:

            const int NumQuestions = 10;
            string[] Question = new string[NumQuestions] 

Now the program will know how many rows are in the array, so

if (i == NumQuestions)
            {
                //Change name of start quiz button and create new event handler for button
                Next.Text = "Finish"; //changes name of Previous button to Finish
                Next.Click -= this.StartQuiz_Click; //unsubcribed orginal event handler of "Next"
                Next.Click += this.Finish_Click; //create new event handler renamed button "Finish" 
            }

                if (User_Answer[i] == correct_answers[i])
                score = score + 1;
                MessageBox.Show("Well done you score" +score);//Prints User score
            }
