Hi everyone, I am making a program that converts just about anything, and I am making the part where it converts length as in, Standard Units and Metric Units.

I made an NSComboBox in Interface builder, I just need a little step by step on what to do from there. Here is how I need it to work:

1. Choose Dropdown from the Window to choose your selection. (Lets say Inches to Meters)

2. Type the amount you want converted in an NSTextField (Editable)

3. Click Convert

I know all the Math you need to do to do this, to turn an inch into a meter you need to Multiply it by 2.54 then multiply the answer by 0.01.

This is what I have for "Length.m"

#import "Length.h"

@implementation Length

@synthesize I2M;

- (float) inchesToMeters {
    return (self.I2M * 2.54) * 0.01;

QUOTE Thanks
