Binary to Octal Converter Windows Store App


In my previous article I described how to convert Octal to binary. But in this article you will learn how to convert binary to octal in simple and easy ways. So let use understand the procedure.

Use the following procedure to create it.

Step 1

First of all you must create a new Windows Store Application.

Open Visual Studio 2012
"File" -> "New" -> "Project..."
Choose "Template" -> "Visual C#" -> "Window Store app"
Choose "Blank App (XAML)" then rename the application


Step 2

Write the following XAML code in "Mainpage.Xaml" (that is available in Solution Explorer):










    <Grid Background="red">


            <ColumnDefinition Width="316*"/>

            <ColumnDefinition Width="256*"/>

            <ColumnDefinition Width="295*"/>

            <ColumnDefinition Width="499*"/>



            <RowDefinition Height="78*"/>

            <RowDefinition Height="49*"/>

            <RowDefinition Height="37*"/>

            <RowDefinition Height="40*"/>

            <RowDefinition Height="39*"/>

            <RowDefinition Height="525*"/>


        <TextBlock Text="binary to octal Converter app" Grid.ColumnSpan="4" Grid.Row="1" Foreground="White" FontSize="20" FontFamily="Arial" TextAlignment="Center" FontWeight="ExtraBold"></TextBlock>

        <TextBlock Text="Enter binary Number :" FontFamily="Arial" FontSize="15" Foreground="White" Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="2" Grid.RowSpan="4" FontWeight="ExtraBold"></TextBlock>

        <TextBox x:Name="textbox1" Grid.Column="2" Grid.Row="2" Width="200" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Height="20" VerticalAlignment="Top" />

        <TextBlock Text="Eqivalent Octal Number is " FontSize="15" Foreground="White" Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="3" FontWeight="ExtraBold"></TextBlock>

        <TextBlock x:Name="text1" FontSize="15" Foreground="White" Grid.Column="2" Grid.Row="3" Width="200" HorizontalAlignment="Left" ></TextBlock>

        <Button x:Name="button1" Grid.Column="2" Grid.Row="4" Background="Yellow" Foreground="Black" Width="150" Content="Click" Click="button1_Click" VerticalAlignment="Bottom" Height="38"/>



Step 3

Now write the following C# code for the button within "Mainpage.Xaml.cs".

using System;

using System.Collections.Generic;

using System.IO;

using System.Linq;

using Windows.Foundation;

using Windows.Foundation.Collections;

using Windows.UI.Xaml;

using Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls;

using Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.Primitives;

using Windows.UI.Xaml.Data;

using Windows.UI.Xaml.Input;

using Windows.UI.Xaml.Media;

using Windows.UI.Xaml.Navigation;


namespace Binary_to_octal_converter_app


    public sealed partial class MainPage : Page               


        public MainPage()




        protected override void OnNavigatedTo(NavigationEventArgs e)



        private void button1_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)


            string  binum = "";

            binum = textbox1.Text;

            int convertnumber = Convert.ToInt32(binum, 2);

            text1.Text = Convert.ToString(convertnumber, 8);





Step 4

Now "Run" your app.
