Turing Swiss Army Knife

Posted: Fri Feb 06, 2004 4:27 pm   Post subject: Turing Swiss Army Knife

Well, I've started programming a "swiss army knife" like tool in Turing. What it basically is, is a conversion program. Right now I am working on, measurements, weighy, temperature and money conversions. THis is just a simple utility for doing quick math, if you want to know how many CM are in a foot, jus followt he menus to convert feet into Centimetres etc. And the same goes for weight, temp etc etc.

I plan on adding more conversions, and I am even trying to create text menu .

Oh well, this is just what I am working on, if anyone is interested in it, I can post it up, I know its not too high tech, but for my skill level it is(I just finished a program that allows the input of a cars travelliug start time, end time, distance and then outputs the total time and average speed

Oh well, just so you guys know of the things to come

A good program to make. Post the code; if it isn't very efficient we can teach you how to make it more efficient.

Also on a program like this I would suggest going a bit overboard and learning how to make menus. Either learn GUI, or make your own using Mouse.Where or Input.KeyDown.

thanks for the advice, I was planning something like this

if 1 = 1 then
put "you have selected blah blah blah"
get rCM
rAns := rCM *2.14
put "rCM is equal to ", rAns

or something liek that and use if statements for most of the options with Else statements. I would have to make the menus effiecien enough so Id idn't have like 800 if statements.

remember its like my 5th learning turing at school, so I don't know too much =/

text based? if your up for it, I would suggest trying to make buttons and such

ie. have a main menu where you click on the button you want (say, "INCHES <--> CM") and it takes you to a new screen where you enter the value for INCHES in a textbox and click convert and it appears in the CM text box.

That would be fairly hard. if you try it just do the first one, then post it

is all I hav really done so far, and I know the code there is not complete. As you can see its going to be a biatch to code all of the if statements when everything is sort of jumbled together, but I believe I can pull through.

I watch very little anime, and have never played the game series. But .hack sounded cool and its geeky so I chose it

P.S the codea t the bottom that is broken away from the large list of puts, is jsut the original code I to do in class for our assignment, so pretty much disregard that. its more like a model for me to view to keep self in check.

if you are having trouble keeping it organized, use procedures. they are very very easy to use / learn and will help enourmously for keeping you organized.

Looks not too bad, if you do make it text based then I would suggest making it look nice with background colours and text colours and a fancy title etc. Everything is better if it looks better!

you don't need to have that 'if 1=1 then" in there.. 1always=1, so there's no way that it could not enter that if statement.

what you would need eventually is a similar if statement around that section where you choose what measurments you want to convert. except you'll have a variable for your first choice (measurment, temperature, weight etc.) and then "if (thatvar)=1 then"

Good job, keep working on it

Hacker Dan created .hack.

Ya pretty good prog, but if you know how to create buttons and such it wil make it look a lot better. Stil good tho. +5BITS

thank you , I hope to have it released by sunday evening, but who knows.

It will look kind of repetitive seems how some other guy made on last night and put it up.

yea, I think I'm going to need a scroll bar or something to be able to croll with for this.. so any ideas?

because it spawns choices down and you type in the choice number, but unfortunately the list is too long and gets cut off, so is ther any way to make a scroll bar type thing, or keyboard arrow pushes to scroll?

Well if you dont wanna do that just make the screen bigger.
Cervantes

Posted: Sat Feb 07, 2004 4:29 pm   Post subject: (No subject)

to make the screen bigger
 code: View.Set ("graphics:x value;y value")

for a scroll bar, you can use the GUI one. check out the help file on it.

Awesome, thanks for the help. Well I got everything besides the scoll bar working. my formulas work and my coding structure also works. here is the geist of my code so far(Probably should have used arrays, but I = dumbass)

And so on and so forth for the rest of the options. I haven't done the section for weight and temperature yet, I'm jsut trying to get this working. Unfortunately I have to go outfor dinner tonight so this may but a delay on the release date.

whoa thats crazy... definately use the inital system where you had menus to determine what type of thing you wanted to convert, like temp or distance.

keep working on it!
