    Need help with poker hands code!

    Here is what I have so far
     Public Class PokerHands
    Sub InputFormat() 'Function to remove space and change characters to UPPER CASE
            InputDisplay.Text = InputDisplay.Text.Replace(" ", "").Replace(",","").ToUpper
        End Sub
        Sub FourOfaKind() 'Four of a Kind
        End Sub
        Sub ThreeOfaKind() 'Three of a Kind
        End Sub
        Sub Pair() 'A pair
        End Sub
        Sub Flush() 'A flush
        End Sub
        Sub Straight() ' A straight, if ace is low
        End Sub
        Sub AceStraight() 'An ace-high straight; 10, J, Q, K, A
        End Sub
        Private Sub InputDisplay_TextChanged(ByVal sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles InputDisplay.TextChanged
        End Sub
        Private Sub Button1_Click(ByValsender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
            Dim hands(4, 13) As Integer 'Example: If (2,11) = 1 then is JD
            Dim SuitsValue() As String = {"S", "D", "C", "H"}
            Dim FaceValue() As String = {"2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8", "9", "T", "J", "Q", "K", "A"}
        End Sub
    End Class
    Hi here is what I have my code so far. I am simply stuck as how to make the program reads the user input and then display the correpsonding deck. For example: if the user input "aH, AS, 2D, 3C, 4C" the program will return ace of hearts, ace of spades, two of diamonds, three of clubs, and four of clubs? Also how can the program will recognize that the first letter (substring (0,1) is the FaceValue and the second letter substring(1,1) is the SuitsValue? I understand I will need a loop function to determine all five. I am sorry if I am asking stupid questions here but I am really stuck!!!

    Thank you very much!

    Maybe something like this will help get you started
    Public Class Form1
        Private _PokerHands As PokerHands
        Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
            _PokerHands = New PokerHands("AH, AS, 2D, 3C, 4C")
        End Sub
    End Class
    Public Class PokerHands
        Public Property Card1 As String
        Public Property Card2 As String
        Public Property Card3 As String
        Public Property Card4 As String
        Public Property Card5 As String
        Public Sub New(cards As String)
            Dim hand() As String = cards.Split(New String() {", "}, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries)
            For Each playingCard As String In hand
                Select Case playingCard
                    Case "AH"
                        Card1 = "ace of hearts"
                    Case "AS"
                        Card2 = "ace of spades"
                    Case "2D"
                        Card3 = "two of diamonds"
                    Case "3C"
                        Card4 = "three of clubs"
                    Case "4C"
                        Card5 = "four of clubs"
                End Select
        End Sub
    End Class
