Hiya i have to write a VB program which generates six lotto numbers, and a bonus ball, and then sort into asscending order and print on to labels. i have got it to generate six numbers and print on to the labels, but i can't get it to generate a bonus ball, or sort them and print them on to the labels underneath.

Here is the code i have allready:

Private Sub cmdchoose_Click()
' Array
Dim arrNumber(1 To 6) As Integer
' Random Number
Dim intLucky As Integer
' Selection Counter
Dim intCount As Integer
' Previous Selection Counter
Dim intCheck As Integer

' Select Six Numbers
For intCount = 1 To 6
' Start Program
Start:
' Start Number Generater
Randomize (Timer)
' Generate number from 1 to 49
intLucky = Int((49 * Rnd) + 1)
For intCheck = 1 To 6
If intLucky = arrNumber(intCheck) Then
'If selected number already present, select again
GoTo Start
End If
Next intCheck
' Store selected number in array
arrNumber(intCount) = intLucky
' apply generated number to labels
lblball1(intCount - 1) = arrNumber(intCount)
Next intCount

End Sub

Private Sub cmdquit_Click()
End
End Sub

Dim i As Integer
For i = 0 To 5
lblball1(i).Caption = ""
Next i
End Sub

i need to add to the code, to make it generate a bonus number and sort into asscending.

if anyone can help thanks

You need to use a Bubble Sort, do a search on VBforums

IMHO, for only six numbers, any sorting algorithm will do. Or sorting on insertion.

At any rate, we would be glad to help with any problems you may be having, but we will not write the code for you. Show us your sorting algorithm, and we will be glad to help you sort it out. (pun intended)

Hiya, i just need to know how to alter the code, to get it to generate a bonus number and print it on the label, for the bonus number.

this is the code that generates the numbers which happens when you click choose number:

' Select Six Numbers
For intCount = 1 To 6
' Start Program
Start:
' Start Number Generater
Randomize (Timer)
' Generate number from 1 to 49
intLucky = Int((49 * Rnd) + 1)
For intCheck = 1 To 6
If intLucky = arrNumber(intCheck) Then
'If selected number already present, select again
GoTo Start
End If
Next intCheck
' Store selected number in array
arrNumber(intCount) = intLucky
' apply generated number to labels
lblball1(intCount - 1) = arrNumber(intCount)
Next intCount

And this code, applys it to the labels:

Dim i As Integer
For i = 0 To 5
lblball1(i).Caption = ""
Next i
End Sub

I would also appreciate it, if some one could help with sorting the numbers into asscending.

Thanks

Dim arrNumber(1 To 6) As Integer

Well your array is 1 to 6 which will give you 6 numbers. Either make it 0 to 6 or 1 to 7 then the extra number can be your bonus.
