Visual F# 100 Examples: Example Number 2

Posted by Rey Dacoco in

Last time I have shared to you our first simple example of window forms application using Visual F#, let’s now proceed to our second example:

Problem: Make a windows forms application that will ask the amount of consumption, amount of investment, government spending, amount of exports and imports and display the net emports and Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Solution:

// Learn more about F# at http://fsharp.net
//specifies the memory location of the class files
//that will be needed in our application
open System.Collections.Generic
open System
open System.Windows.Forms
open System.ComponentModel
open System.Drawing
//creates our controls
let gdpform=new Form(Text="Compute GDP", Size=new System.Drawing.Size(300, 330),StartPosition=FormStartPosition.CenterScreen,AutoScaleMode=AutoScaleMode.Font)
let n1label=new Label(Text="Consumption:",Location=new System.Drawing.Point(0,20),AutoSize=true)
let firsttextbox=new TextBox(Location=new System.Drawing.Point(80, 20))
let n2label=new Label(Text="Investment:", Location=new System.Drawing.Point(0,50),AutoSize=true)
let secondtextbox=new TextBox(Location=new System.Drawing.Point(80,50))
let n3label=new Label(Text="Government spending:", Location=new System.Drawing.Point(0, 90),AutoSize=true)
let thirdtextbox=new TextBox(Location=new System.Drawing.Point(130, 90))
let n4label=new Label(Text="Exports:", Location=new System.Drawing.Point(0, 120),AutoSize=true)
let fourthtextbox=new TextBox(Location=new System.Drawing.Point(130, 120))
let n5label=new Label(Text="Imports:", Location=new System.Drawing.Point(0, 150),AutoSize=true)
let fifthtextbox=new TextBox(Location=new System.Drawing.Point(130, 150))
let n6label=new Label(Text="Imports:", Location=new System.Drawing.Point(0, 180),AutoSize=true)
let netemlabel=new Label(Location=new System.Drawing.Point(130, 180),BorderStyle=BorderStyle.FixedSingle)
let n7label=new Label(Text="GDP:", Location=new System.Drawing.Point(0, 210),AutoSize=true)
let gdplabel=new Label(Location=new System.Drawing.Point(130, 210),BorderStyle=BorderStyle.FixedSingle)
let computebutton=new Button(Text="Compute", Location=new System.Drawing.Point(100, 250))
let exitbutton=new Button(Text="Exit", Location=new System.Drawing.Point(200, 250))
//add the controls into the form
gdpform.Controls.Add(n1label)
gdpform.Controls.Add(firsttextbox)
gdpform.Controls.Add(n2label)
gdpform.Controls.Add(secondtextbox)
gdpform.Controls.Add(n3label)
gdpform.Controls.Add(thirdtextbox)
gdpform.Controls.Add(n4label)
gdpform.Controls.Add(fourthtextbox)
gdpform.Controls.Add(n5label)
gdpform.Controls.Add(fifthtextbox)
gdpform.Controls.Add(n6label)
gdpform.Controls.Add(netemlabel)
gdpform.Controls.Add(n7label)
gdpform.Controls.Add(gdplabel)
gdpform.Controls.Add(computebutton)
gdpform.Controls.Add(exitbutton)
//when the compute button is clicked
computebutton.Click.Add(fun compute->
//assigned the numbers inputted to each textbox to their corresponding variable
//compute the net emport using the formula net emport=export-import
//compute the gdp using the formula gdp=consumption+investment+govspending+netemport
let consumption=Convert.ToDouble(firsttextbox.Text)
let investment=Convert.ToDouble(secondtextbox.Text)
let govspending=Convert.ToDouble(thirdtextbox.Text)
let export=Convert.ToDouble(fourthtextbox.Text)
let import=Convert.ToDouble(fifthtextbox.Text)
let netemport=export-import
let gdp=(consumption+investment+govspending+netemport)
netemlabel.Text<-Convert.ToString(netemport)
                 gdplabel.Text<-Convert.ToString(gdp))
 //when the exit button is clicked, close the form            
exitbutton.Click.Add(fun exit -> gdpform.Close())  
Application.Run(gdpform)
