Credit card validator

Has anyone created a credit card validator before using xojo?

I looked at this once, but got distracted by other issues. I decided I didn’t want to go through the trouble associated with credit card transactions. It is much easier these days.

The Luhn algorithm is often used to check validity:

I found this on the web - hope it helps:

This is the (visual basic) code used to create a webform that verifies the validity of a Visa credit card.

Private Sub uiVerifyButton_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e _
As System.EventArgs) Handles uiVerifyButton.Click
Dim possibleNum(), ccStr As String
ccStr = Me.uiCreditTextBox.Text.Replace(" ", “”)
Dim nDigits, mySum As Integer
nDigits = Len(ccStr)
ReDim possibleNum(nDigits)

     If (nDigits <> 16 AndAlso nDigits <> 13) Then
        View HTML source code to see what goes here.
         mySum = myLuhn(possibleNum, ccStr, nDigits)

         If (mySum Mod 10 = 0) Then
             Me.uiValidLabel.Text = "Valid Number"
             Me.uiValidLabel.Text = "Invalid Number"
         End If
     End If
End Sub

Private Function myLuhn(ByRef possNum() As String, ByRef ccStrg As String _
        , ByVal nDigits As Integer) As Integer
    Dim sum, parity, digit, i As Integer
    parity = nDigits Mod 2
    For i = 0 To nDigits - 1
        possNum(i) = ccStrg.Substring(i, 1)
        digit = CInt(possNum(i))
        If (i Mod 2 = parity) Then
            digit *= 2
        End If
        If (digit > 9) Then
            digit -= 9
        End If
        sum += digit
    Next i
    Me.uiValidLabel.Visible = True
    Return sum
End Function

If you use MBS Xojo Plugins, you can use IsValidCreditCardNumberMBS function.
