How to store data from form
« on: November 07, 2011, 11:00:00 AM »
I am trying to pull the values from comboBoxes, textBoxes etc. out of a form and convert to int or double etc.  The challenge is the feet and inches that is coming from the string values.  In the old days, (using VBA) I would do a HUGE select case statement going through each string, and figure out what the choice was.  In C# is there an easier way to avoid this?  I was thinking of maybe using an Enum and comparing the # of the comboBox to the same # in the Enum.  Is there a better way?
