CS 405 Assignment 1

Simple Application in Visual Basic - Due January 28

The purpose of this assignment is to familiarize you with writing simple applications in Visual Basic, and to iron out the logistical aspects of the class.

Program Requirements

When run, your program should open a window with two buttons. The button on the top should have a label that says, "Info" and the button on the bottom should have a label that says quit. The text that appears in the program's title bar should be "Program 1" followed by your last name. A screen shot of my program 1 follows.

Pressing the button that says "Info" should bring up a dialog box with your full name in it. Again, a screen shot follows.

Pressing the button that says "Quit" should exit the program.

Submission Instructions

To submit this program, I would like all students to zip their project, and send it to me. I would like you to submit the entire project, which should be named Prog_1_lastname, where lastname is your last name. For me, this is Prog_1_Wilt. Students should email their completed projects to cs405@cs.unh.edu. This is a slight change from what I talked about in class, because gmail rejects attachments containing executable files. As the term progresses I may attempt to work out a more advanced submission scheme, so please pay attention to the submission instructions for future assignments, as this may change for future assignments.

Late Policy

The assignment is due prior to midnight on the listed due date. For this assignment, that means you must turn in your solution before to January 29.

Unlike other classes you may have taken in the past, no late work is allowed for this class. This is worth repeating, because it is extremely important: no late work is allowed for this class. We will move quickly, and I do not want students straggling behind trying to catch up on work from previous weeks, which is what generally happens when late work is accepted.
