Enter the cost per kilowatt-hour.
Select a home appliance from a list of home appliances.
Enter the power needed in kilowatts (kW) for the selected appliance.
Enter the number of hours used per day for the selected appliance.
The program should do the following:
Validate that the data entered has the correct format and is within a reasonable range.
Calculate and display the cost for operating a home appliance as soon as the data is entered.
Required programming components
Use a Try/Catch
Use at least one loop

Use properly labeled and named text boxes, labels, buttons and forms (see the text for proper naming conventions). Include an exit button. Make sure the buttons work.
Be generous with internal documentation. Should have as many lines of documentation as you do code.
Design a GUI for the program that will be intuitive for a novice user.
Write the code for the program and test the results.
Zip the files of the project together.
