I am very new to visual basic 2010 and am really struggling with it. My assignment is a fat gram calculator and the example is there are 200 calories in the food and there are 8 grams of fat in the food. The calculator gives the percentage of calories that come from fat. I have the equation and the code written but when I calculate I get .36% instead of 36.00%. Any help is appreciated.
Here is my code:
Private Sub Button1_Click( ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click Dim decCalories As Decimal Dim decFat As Decimal Dim decPercent As Decimal Dim decX As Decimal lblPercent.Visible = True Try decCalories = CDec(txtCalories.Text) decFat = CDec(txtFat.Text) decX = decFat * 9 decPercent = decX / decCalories If decPercent < 30 then lblError.Text = "Low Fat Food" End If If decFat > decCalories then lblError.Text = "Calorie or Fat Grams Entered Incorrectly" End If lblPercent.Text = decPercent.ToString("n2") & "%" Catch lblError.Text = "Please try again. Enter a number" End Try End Sub
