Post subject:  Basic Math 
Hi, I've just started with RealBasic and was wondering how I would go about making a simple calculator where you input 3 different numerical imputs, the program then does the calculations based on this formula : 10xAx(bc)=Answer (where a,b,c are the inputs.) I have previous experience with Vb.net, if that helps. Here is a link to an image of the Window/form: http://www.lcnmrc.com/lcnmrc.com/Rocket_Flight_Caculator.html Thanks

The first thing you need is to get the values from the textfields as numbers. The value typed into the field is available as a string in TextField.Text. You can convert a string to a number with CDbl(). So your code will look something like dim a, b, c, answer as double Now you need to display the answer somewhere. "Displaying" anything requires a string. You can convert a number to a string with Format(). TextField4.Text = Format(answer, "#") Refer to the documentation for additional details.
