One to clear the contents of the text boxes, and one to exit the application. Include hot keys on the buttons.Rename the buttons to reflect their purpose ( from ‘button1’ to something like ‘btnClear’)Name the form, “Week 1” and have that label show on the title bar of the form (instead of the default ‘form1’)Rename the form to ‘frmweek1’Include documentation at the top of the code in the form which includes your name and a short description of the assignmentInclude anything else you would like to try on the form. Play around and get familiar with the toolbox. Change colors of objects or whatever. Experiment around.Include a block at the top of the code that contains your information: programmer, date, and information about the applicationZip the files of the project together.Submit the zipped filePOS 408 Week 1  DQ 1Reflect on the information from an article you find on the Internet or elsewhere that relates to the topic. Select ONE article and write your reactions, thoughts, and experiences related to the article. As long as the article is somewhat related to our class topics, or to technology generally, it will be fine.Please do not simply just recap or recite what you read. As part of your response please include the following:
  • How does the information apply?
  • How or why is the information meaningful/useful?
  • Why do you agree or disagree?
Other requirements: 250-400 words, formal writing, and do not use an attachment. Include the reference for the article.

Requirements
  • The GUI program will have a button that displays the wordHello somewhere on the form, or in an object on the form, like a label.

Randomly create addition, multiplication, subtraction and division questions like:Addition
14
11
—Have the user enter an answer. Let them know if they answered the question correctly.
Create random numbers for the questions.
You can group the questions in groups of ten or so, and give them a score like, “You got 8 out of 10 Correct!!”
You can tell the program to do just addition, or a combination of question types.
There is no right or wrong way to do this.
I hope you have fun with this and watch how others create their application.Don’t feel like you need to spend a lot of time on this. If you make an attempt you will get the DQ points.This can be a useful application for your kids or grandkids.POS 408 Week 3 DQ  3Create a flow chart.You have a robot standing and facing a set of stairs. We do not know how many steps it will take for the robot to get to the stairs and we do not know how many stairs there are. You need to write a flowchart to get the robot to the top of the stairs.Your robot can do the following: 1. take a step forward 2. take a stair-step up 3. has an electric eye to know whether the next step is a stair or not.If your robot takes a stair-step and there is no stair as the next step, your robot will fall down.See the example flowchart in the Material’s for week three.Create your flowchart in Word drawing objects using the template I attached so we are all on the same platform and can see each other’s flowcharts.Attach your Word document in reply to this thread.
