    here I attached my project as it is so far, I am yet to add the uncertainty of measurement labels (which will be placed above and below estimated end date, and will display the maximum finish date and the minimum finish date taking into account errors that could occur when taking the initial measurements) and I am sure there is some bugs I can fix, or things I can tweak.
    the sole user of this program will not be myself so I want to make it easier for someone with zero experience of the program to be able to use it.

    ANY suggestions are welcome and I will try implement all ideas I think will improve the program as this the first 'proper' program I am putting all my efforts into making it a good one,
    thanks in advance

    All of the math appears unnecessary. Stopwatches have properties that contain the values needed. Here is a short example.

        Dim stpw As New Stopwatch
        Dim whenStart As DateTime
        Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
            whenStart = DateTime.Now
        End Sub
        Private Sub Button2_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
            Dim whenStop As DateTime = whenStart.Add(stpw.Elapsed)
            TextBox1.Text = stpw.Elapsed.TotalSeconds.ToString
            TextBox2.Text = whenStop.ToString
        End Sub

  3. In Topic: converting integer to a string

    Posted 5 Nov 2014

    You might find that using an Enum is what you want. It assumes that your names are statically defined.

        Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _
            Handles Button1.Click
            TextBox1.Text = GetName(CInt(NumericUpDown1.Value))
        End Sub
        Public Function GetName(ByVal ID As Integer) As String
            Dim Name As Names = CType(ID, Names)
            Return Name.ToString
        End Function
        Enum Names
            Noah = 1
            Sophia = 2
            Liam = 3
            Jacob = 4
            William = 5
        End Enum
  4. In Topic: Challenge: Outshots?

    Posted 26 Oct 2014

    An attempt is here (VS2012):
    Outshots Solution

    The binaries have been removed.
  5. In Topic: need help with network connectivity check

    I want this function to check for 2 things
    1.check if network interface is still available
    2.if in 1. is yes then check if it's still connected

    if it's not just go to shutdown.

    And if it is still connected what will your app do then?
