today i finished my program, electing to have a conversion chart for the time values instead of a calculator, as there is no mathematical formula that converts 42 and 12 hour values. I have been testing my program as I finished sections of the converter, and did a final check at the end of class.
Today I finished programming and published my program. Looking at the required way to convert the time units and the complicated differences between the AM/PM values would have made it very difficult to finish the program on time, so as to finish the program, I removed the time converter, which unfortunately brought the total units that can be converted to 4, instead of the 6 I had originally imagined. I do wish I could have more possible conversions, but in order to finish on time, I had to remove the time value.
I made all the code to convert the units of mass, as well as searching for a link to be able to convert time simply, but I see that I may need to write more complicated code for the time values, but the remainder of the program is very straightforward.
Today I finished all conversion programming and testing for the ‘distance’ tab. I set it up similarly to the temperature conversions, making a button that will return the user to the main form, a button to completely end the program, as well as a button to activate the calculation and convert the values.
Today I made sure my design folder blog was up to date with all correct parts and complete research/descriptions for each of the sections. Using the final few minutes of class, I was able to create forms for each of the distance conversions and link the buttons on form1 to those additional forms, but no conversion or GUI programming was done.
I finished programming the process of converting the temperature units for both F-C and C-F. I tweaked the appearance of the form slightly so instead of the answer appearing in a label, the answer will now appear in a text box, but if the user were to edit the answer text box, it will have no affect on the conversion.
