This is a type of words puzzle game where players can form as many words as possible from the characters displayed on a nxn square. Words can be formed in many ways, from left to right, from right to left, top to bottom, bottom to top, diagonal, zigzag manner and etc. You can actually play boggle online.

In this programme, I have designed a 5x5 boggle. Each time a player press the shake button, a different set of characters will appear. In order to do this, I use the randomize concept. So, I created an array of 26 characters and display them on an array of 24 labels. Then, I use a For...Next loop to generate the characters. The procedure may look simple but it need a lot of thinking before coming out with the idea.





The Codes


Dim char(25) As String

Dim I As Integer
Dim J As Integer

Private Sub Command1_Click()
char(0) = "A"
char(1) = "B"
char(2) = "C"
char(3) = "D"
char(4) = "E"
char(5) = "E"
char(6) = "G"
char(7) = "H"
char(8) = "I"
char(9) = "J"
char(10) = "K"
char(11) = "L"
char(12) = "M"
char(13) = "N"
char(14) = "O"
char(15) = "P"
char(16) = "Q"
char(17) = "R"
char(18) = "S"
char(19) = "T"
char(20) = "U"
char(21) = "V"
char(22) = "W"
char(23) = "X"
char(24) = "Y"
char(25) = "Z"

Randomize Timer
For I = 0 To 24
J = Int((Rnd * 26))
Label1(I).Caption = char(J)

End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
End Sub

Private Sub Label1_Click(Index As Integer)

End Sub
