interface question

I am to write a program to compute services rendered,the program is to request a person's occupation,the amount of the bill,and the percentage of the tip as input.this information is to pass to a sub program to display the person and the tip.
My question is, What tools go into the interface? I have lables for the person's occupation, the amount of the bill,and the percent of the tip, but do I use text boxes or picture boxes for the output?or both? what would go where?
please email catdancing@sbcglobal.net

    E.G. For sub procedure>>

    Sub Statement

    See Also Example

    Declares the name, arguments, and code that form the body of a Sub procedure.

    Syntax

    [Private | Public] [Static] Sub name [(arglist)]
    [statements]
    [Exit Sub]
    [statements]
    End Sub

    The Sub statement syntax has these parts:

    Part Description

    Public Indicates that the Sub procedure is accessible to all other procedures in all modules.
    Private Indicates that the Sub procedure is accessible only to other procedures in the module where it is declared.
    Static Indicates that the Sub procedure's local variables are preserved between calls. The Static attribute doesn't affect variables that are declared outside the Sub, even if they are used in the procedure.
    name Name of the Sub; follows standard variable naming conventions.
    arglist List of variables representing arguments that are passed to the Sub procedure when it is called. Multiple variables are separated by commas.
    statements Any group of statements to be executed within the body of the Sub procedure.

    The arglist argument has the following syntax and parts:
    [Optional][ByVal | ByRef][ParamArray] varname[( )] [As type]

    Part Description

    Optional Indicates that an argument is not required. If used, all subsequent arguments in arglist must also be optional and declared using the Optional keyword. All Optional arguments must be Variant. Optional can't be used for any argument if ParamArray is used.
    ByVal Indicates that the argument is passed by value.
    ByRef Indicates that the argument is passed by reference.
    ParamArray Used only as the last argument in arglist to indicate that the final argument is an Optional array of Variant elements. The ParamArray keyword allows you to provide an arbitrary number of arguments. It may not be used with ByVal, ByRef, or Optional.

    varname Name of the variable representing the argument; follows standard variable naming conventions.
    type Data type of the argument passed to the procedure; may be Byte, Boolean, Integer, Long, Currency, Single, Double, Date, String (variable length only), Object, Variant, a user-defined type, or an object type.

    Remarks

    If not explicitly specified using either Public or Private, Sub procedures are public by default. If Static is not used, the value of local variables is not preserved between calls.
    All executable code must be in procedures. You can't define a Sub procedure inside another Sub, Function, or Property procedure.
    The Exit Sub keywords cause an immediate exit from a Sub procedure. Program execution continues with the statement following the statement that called the Sub procedure. Any number of Exit Sub statements can appear anywhere in a Sub procedure.
    Like a Function procedure, a Sub procedure is a separate procedure that can take arguments, perform a series of statements, and change the value of its arguments. However, unlike a Function procedure, which returns a value, a Sub procedure can't be used in an expression.
    You call a Sub procedure using the procedure name followed by the argument list. See the Call statement for specific information on how to call Sub procedures.

    Caution Sub procedures can be recursive; that is, they can call themselves to perform a given task. However, recursion can lead to stack overflow. The Static keyword usually is not used with recursive Sub procedures.

    Variables used in Sub procedures fall into two categories: those that are explicitly declared within the procedure and those that are not. Variables that are explicitly declared in a procedure (using Dim or the equivalent) are always local to the procedure. Variables that are used but not explicitly declared in a procedure are also local unless they are explicitly declared at some higher level outside the procedure.

    Caution A procedure can use a variable that is not explicitly declared in the procedure, but a naming conflict can occur if anything you have defined at the module level has the same name. If your procedure refers to an undeclared variable that has the same name as another procedure, constant or variable, it is assumed that your procedure is referring to that module-level name. Explicitly declare variables to avoid this kind of conflict. You can use an Option Explicit statement to force explicit declaration of variables.

    Note You can't use GoSub, GoTo, or Return to enter or exit a Sub procedure.

    Dr M

    : : The visual basic program I have doesn't cantain any help at all.

    Try asking your teacher to show you where the help files are, failing that ask Him/ Her for the help files.

    It may save you asking lots of questions in this forum.

    I dont mean to sound nasty here but the simpler stuff should be covered by the stuff in>>

    http://www.codepedia.com/1/BeginnersGuideToVB

    or get a book out of your local library on VB6 ( or the version you are using ), after all libraries are free. :-)

  • I have been asking since the start of this class in Janurary. All I've been told is that if i don't undrerstand the class to drop it. Unfortunitely I can't afford to do that or I would. I just need to get through it.Can someone help?

    You can use ListView control, HFlexGridControl or FlexGridControl, if you are using VB 6. In case you are using VB.NET use ListView or DataGrid. There are a bunch of code example for those controls on Google.

    Here it is one
