Exclamation Ex 15-2

Hi Rod,
I am a novice programmer and I am trying to find out how I can do Ex 15-2 in C# Programming with Visual Studio 2010 24 hour trainer with both array and loop. I would love for anyone to solve this with a loop and array as i am having some difficulties in resolving this issue

Forgot to add here. The information I am specifically looking for is how I can enter the information about the 10 birthdates in listbox (as shown in Ex15-1 for one value) instead of hard coded values (as you have shown for Ex15-2) and I want to see it using both loops and arrays.

A good question! Here's what I would do:

1. Get a birth date. Have the user enter a date in a TextBox and click a Go button.

2. Parse the date to create a Date variable. Use its Year, Month, and Day properties to get its year month and day.

3. Clear the ListBox. Then for (int i = 0; i <= 10; i++):

a. Create a new Date variable using the Year + i, Month, and Day.

b. Display the new Date and its DayOfWeek.ToString() in the ListBox.

I think you can do everything here except the loop with what you know by Lesson 15. Loops are covered in Lesson 19. (I suppose you could do this with a series of 11 nearly identical statements instead of using a loop but it would be poor code.)

Give that a try and let me know if you get stuck. If you want to see an example, email me and I'll send one to you.
