Hello everyone,

This is the first time I put a question here in the forum of Code Project, so I hope to be sufficiently direct that want help.

The thing is, I'm me started on C#, and decided to forward to me and try to understand a little of the language, so I tried to solve an exercise, but eventually you can not go very far, even following a tutorial, so I decided come here at the forum and is not asking too much, to see if someone could solve this exercise, which I suppose that is easy for those already working for some time in C#.

But first needed to know if I can put here the problem statement?

It's just that I had to read the rules, and they say that they should try to keep the question as short as possible. Therefore, he requested that someone told me if you can put here the problem statement.

I forgot to mention, that this exercise was provided to me by a student who already took the course I am attending.

I leave for now since my thanks to those who help me.

It does not make any certain question suitable to be answered here.
Do you have something more specific?

Hi Bruno!
You are definitely in the right place if you have a programming question, but you must also understand that this forum is dedicated to users that have already tried something and are stuck. Of course you can also pose more general questions, but usually it is frowned upon if it were information one could easily google on ones own. If it is an exercise that was given to you by a fellow student that should also be the first one for you to ask.

Rule #1: Always look for information at the source

If it is an exercise that is expected of someone attending a course, it is also understood that the person attending that course should be able to solve it. Once again Rule#1 applies quite nicely: If you don't think you have enough information to solve the exercise the best thing for you to do is to ask your lecturer or one of the tutors.

Enough of all this already :). If you think you have a question regarding programming matters this is the forum where to ask such questions, but you must acknowledge that we are only prepared to really help those who have already tried something and just for good measure I'll just mention Rule#1 once again.

Happy coding and an informative stay here at Code Project!


A couple of hints:

- be precise
- enclose the necessary details (Sometimes we're quite good at mind reading, but you can never depend on it
- don't paste a code dump but only the important parts concerning the problem
- make sure you can use a debugger
- read it, think about it, ask somebody (in person), google it, read it again, think it over some more, rinse lather repeat and if you're still stuck come here show us what you've done and where your problem is and maybe we can help you.

Remarkable effort. Hope you impress OP to use your accuracy as a model for asking questions. My 5.

Actually OP impressed me by cautiously asking about the right way to ask questions here and this is truely a remarkable experience as you surely know! So I thought I put OP on the right track from the start.

I noticed that, too. Hope for good help.

Okay, thank you so much for answering and told what kind of questions should I place here at Code Project. :)

Only a relatively small fractions of the questions are adequate. Go to the list of all questions and look at those with stars (having good rating) -- you will get a pretty good idea on what works well with CodeProject.
