im designing a program that automatically sorts players rankings however finding it extremely hard and barely know where to begin, im fairly new at programming but here is what i want to do.....
basically i have 4 columns "games played", "games won", "games lost" and " average scoring percentage calculated by games won / games played * 100.
ive managed to do that but im using labels and textboxes as its easier, the problem im having though is to somehow tranfer the data entered in these textboxes and labels into a listbox or listview "whichever is better" and automatically sort it as to which player will be 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc
note!!!!. if player 1 played played 10 games and won 7 and player 2 played 2 and won both player 2 cant be 1st as player 1 played more
heres where im stuck
can you please help?
eg of my coding is...
dim num as integer
dimnum 2 as integer
txt1.text= num 'games played
txt2.text= num2 ' games won
label1.text = (num2 / num * 100) ' average
label2.text = (num1 - num2) ' games lost
average and games lost is calculated automatically then sorted whilst the rest is entered manually
also how do i save this info so that i can access it again with all the info still in the program after closing it... i tried streamreaders and streamwriters but do not know how to save or retrieve the dat again...
What programming language are you using? That will be an important part of the information you need to convey to get a good answer to your question. Visual Studio is not a programming language, it is an IDE.
