    Resolved Homework Help!! Please!!

    I am so lost in this class. I just need to get past my last two assignments in this class and I don't have to worry about VB again. I am going to school for web development/Admin.

    Please help me, I don't even know how to start this code off. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Here is the assignment....

    Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to use sub procedures.

    Write a Visual Basic program that calculates the cans of paint required to cover a room.

    Each can of paint covers 500 square feet of surface area.

    Your form should have enough text boxes to calculate the area of 4 walls. Your form should also have a calculate button, a clear button and an exit button. It is required that your calculations use a sub procedure to determine the number of paint cans needed. This sub procedure should be called from the calc button. There must be data passed to the sub procedure with parameters. Note that you should move the data from the text boxes to variables. You should then do calculations using variables. You then take the data from the variables and display it on the form in labels.

    I know this is a piece of cake for you boys, but this class makes me feel like an idiot. I am barely passing

    Thank you boys!!!

    You have to show what you have already done and what problem you currently have that prevent you to go on.
    Only after that you could expect some additional help.

    Public Class Form1

    Public Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click

    wall1HT.Clear()
    wall1LT.Clear()
    wall2HT.Clear()
    wall2LT.Clear()
    wall3HT.Clear()
    wall3LT.Clear()
    wall4HT.Clear()
    wall4LT.Clear()

    End Sub

    Private Sub Button3_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button3.Click
    Me.Close()
    End Sub
    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

    End Sub

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
    Dim wall1HT As Integer = 0
    Dim wall1LT As Integer = 0
    Dim wall2HT As Integer = 0
    Dim wall2LT As Integer = 0
    Dim wall3HT As Integer = 0
    Dim wall3LT As Integer = 0
    Dim wall4HT As Integer = 0
    Dim wall4LT As Integer = 0
    Dim wall1Total As Integer = 0
    Dim wall2Total As Integer = 0
    Dim wall3Total As Integer = 0
    Dim wall4Total As Integer = 0
    Dim paintCans As Single

    wall1Total = wall1HT * wall1LT
    wall2Total = wall2HT * wall2LT
    wall3Total = wall3HT * wall2LT
    wall4Total = wall4HT * wall4LT

    paintCans = wall1Total + wall2Total + wall3Total + wall4Total

    For paintCans = 0 To 1000 Step 1
    If paintCans <= 500 Then
    paintCans = 1
    Else
    For paintCans = 501 To 1000 Step 1

    Next
    End If
    Next

    paintCans = ansLBL.Text


    End Sub
    End Class

    I am really bad at this. I know this is completely wrong in every aspect. Please dont be mad that i am butchering your language.

    1. You have to use Code tags while posting code snippets. Otherwise your code is unreadable.
    2. What problem with this code (and where) do you have?
