# Counter

• ### Question

• Hi, i am struggling with my counter for a piece of work i am doing, my counter is in the format of x/x and counts up to six perfectly fine (6/6), however i want the second digit in the counter to go up one every time the first digit goes up one when it reaches 6, for example 4/6, 5/6, 6/6, 7/7, 8/8.

my code is as follows;

Dim ButtonSubmitCount As Integer
Dim ButtonSubmitCount2 As Integer

ButtonSubmitCount2 = 6
ButtonSubmitCount += 1
Label6.Text = "Current count = " & ButtonSubmitCount & "/" & ButtonSubmitCount2
If ButtonSubmitCount = "6" Then
End If

If ButtonSubmitCount <= "6" Then
ButtonSubmitCount2 = 6 + 1
End If

• This sounds like a class assignment type of thing. Please be aware that if someone gives a complete answer and you use it and your teacher sees this question and the answer then it could be bad for you.

It is not clear to me what the program is supposed to do. If I understand then you can have a loop inside another loop to get you to 6/6 and then another loop to go from there. What you currently have looks very incomplete; I suggest thinking about it some more and then posting something closer to what you need.

I can't see how that code works properly up to 6, but I think you want something like:

```        If ButtonSubmitCount < 6 Then
ButtonSubmitCount += 1
Else
ButtonSubmitCount += 1
ButtonSubmitCount2 += 1
End If```
