 POS 408 Week 3 Individual: Enhanced Home Utility Auditing Program

Assignment Preparation: Activities include watching the Lynda.com videos, independent student reading, and research.




Watch “Exploring Syntax and Flow” of the Lynda.com “Visual Basic® Essential Training” video.



Design, implement, test, and debug a Visual Basic®   Windows Forms (WinForm)program to create an enhanced home utility auditing program based on Week 2. The program will display exactly one Form (window) on the screen. Conform to my published VB coding standards.

The user should be able to do the following:




Enter the cost per kilowatt-hour.


Select from a list of home appliances which includes a Washer, among other appliances.









Hair Dryer


Deep Freeze













Enter the power needed in kilowatts (kW) for the selected appliance.


Enter the number of hours used per day for the selected appliance.


If the washer is selected, enter both the number of gallons of water used by the washer per hour and the cost per gallon.


The program should do the following:




Validate that the data entered has the correct format, and is within a reasonable range.


When the user presses your “calculate” button, calculate and display the cost for operating a home appliance


Create a listing area to display each of the following for each appliance entered:





Home appliance


Number of hours per day







Add the new appliance to the end of the listing area, when the “calculate” button is pressed.


Display and update the total cost of all appliances, as soon as a new entry is added to the listing area.


Write the code for the program and test the results. Ensure that the program produces correct, reasonable results.

Zip the files of the project together.

Submit the zipped file.
