Programming Assignment #1
Dropbox Due Date:  Thursday, Feb 19, 9:30 AM

A dairy farmer is thinking of enclosing some pasture land and wants to compute the cost of fencing for various possible sizes of enclosure.  In this assignment you are to create a program to compute the length and cost of fencing needed.  Assume that the fencing cost is $20.00 per lineal foot.   The area enclosed will be a rectangle.  Use text boxes to accept the user’s input and labels to display results.  Assume that all dimensions are in feet and that decimal values are permitted.  The user inputs needed are length and width.  The outputs displayed will be fence length and fencing cost.  The fencing cost must be displayed in a label in currency format.

•    Your program will be graded based on the rubric given in the syllabus.
•    Be sure to use variables of appropriate names and type for all variables.  Likewise be sure to name objects such as text boxes, labels and buttons.
•    Take care to zip your completed project correctly.  To check that you have done it correctly it’s a good idea to extract (unzip) the project and see if you can open it.
•    Once you are sure it is zipped correctly submit it to the Project 1 Drop Box.
