Introduction

PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN BY SHAZIA YAQUB 04084090 INTRODUCTION I have been asked to prepare a personal report that addresses my approach to learning and provides a reflective account of my experiences, of carrying out a series of programming activities. The report that I will be creating is a reflection upon my collective and collaborative activities, working in a group. WEEK 3 INTRODUCTION TO PROGRAMMING AND VISUAL BASIC DIGITAL CLOCK 11th to 17th October WHAT I HAD TO DO: We had to interactively design a digital clock program. The program had to be designed in a way for objects to respond to events. HOW I CREATED THE PROGRAM I used a label to display the system time in, as the requirement was to program objects to respond to events. I used a label called lblToday because labels are containers for programs-generated messages. They have properties such as name, caption, font etc. I defined my label with the name lblToday so that I could show the correct date at the time at runtime by typing out the instruction lblToday.Caption=Time$. As the time would not change if I displayed the time on form_load I had to find an object from the tool box which looked like a clock and then I put it onto my form. I then changed the interval property to 1000, this was to indicate 1000 milliseconds. ...read more.

and three dimensions integers for the guess, and for two other variables to hold the upper limit of age being considered and the lower limit. I called these three variables guess, upper and lower. I then created a subroutine called clear values to set lower to 0, upper to 99 and generated a random number in the range of 0 to 99. I thought that the latter number must be stored in guess so I stored it in guess. I then created another subroutine called show values to display the value of guess in the label, in the correct format. I have used a select case statement to output different messages depending on the age according to the ranges (i.e 0-15, 16-21, 22-39, 40 and above) If the guess is too high I have programmed the program in the subroutine for command too high, I have set the upper to one less than the generated number (guess), and the guess has been set to (the integer part) the average of lower and upper. Also if the guess is too low, the lower has been set to one more than the guess, a new guess will be calculated from the average of upper and lower, and the output in the label. PROBLEMS I FACED WHILST DESIGNING THE PROGRAM: This was the third program given to design from the two that I had designed I found this the quite difficult to design. ...read more.

Conclusion

For this assignment I have worked both individually and collectively in a group of four students. As a group we assisted each other in planning, problem solving and the critical analysis and synthesis of ideas for exploring each activity. Since the tutorials commenced I have undertook to complete a series of tasks during the tutorial sessions on a week by week basis. Personally I feel that I have met my objectives by completing the tasks set successfully due to my excellent attendance and punctuality. As an individual attending each one of my tutorials on a weekly basis and on time was of major importance, this was so that I would not loose any valuable time on working towards my objectives which was to complete all the tasks on time successfully. In the future I will apply the same rules to my studies in order to achieve my objectives, because of my excellent attendance and punctuality. Not only that but also my time management will be a major factor, because as a group we made sure that if the task were not completed in class they would be completed before the next tutorial commenced the following week. This is why I have been able to hand in my tasks on time and make sure they are working accurately. ?? ?? ?? ?? SHAZIA YAQUB 04084090 THE ICT PRACTIOTIONER 3ISY433 1 ...read more.
