View Full Version : Is this a Java situation?

05-20-2008, 12:56 AM
I am really a beginner.
I would appreciate if somebody can post for me the coding for a calculator:

It has to be able to perform a simple arithmetic function, it has to have windows to enter the information and a "calculate" and "reset" buttons.

The calculator should have this display:


Enter rise ( a window to input information in inches)

Calculate Reset

Length for 1: 12 (a window showing the results)
Formula= rise/ 1

Length for 2:12 (a window showing the results)
Formula= rise/2

Length for 3:12 (a window showing the results)
Formula = rise/3

If the person enter the rise, then the result should show up in the 3 length windows.

This is a very simple calculator but... i do not know how to do the coding. Hope somebody would be able to help me

RE thread title: Could be java, but probably easier to accomplish with javascript.

Java and Javascript are entirely different programming languages, in spite of the confusingly similar names.

What is the program for? It sounds like a school assignment. Do you have anything started yet?
