As the title implies, I need help on a "Prime Number Producer". By that I mean the following: If someobody enters a number, they are supposed to get shown all the prime numbers up to the entered number.
This is what it's supposed to look like.
Here's my code:
Dim Maximum As Double Dim i As Integer Dim y As Integer Dim Prime As Boolean For Maximum = 3 To y - 1 Step 2 If y Mod Maximum = 0 Then Prime = False Exit For For i = 3 To Math.Sqrt(y) Step 2 Prime = True lst_Prime.Items.Add(i) Next End If Next Maximum End Sub
The problem is that it isn't giving me out any numbers. I have tried checking it but I just can't seem to find the error ;. I tried checking out books, browsing forums but nothing has helped.
Do not worry, this is not supposed to be homework. It is merely a practice for me, programming-wise, and for somebody who wants to help teaching their children the prime numbers (so that they can double-check when they practise).
I thank you for your help in advance! :-)
