I have updated the program, just a fix to the resistor display value error.  somehow, the display at the bottom show an extra digit when it should only be three.  Use 12v on the supply and 4v on the LED voltage.  value will be 430 Ohms, while the bottom display will show 4300 Ohms.

Thanks to Robert O' Connor for letting me know of this error.

Updated again.  Just some cosmetic changes like lengthen the comboboxes to fully display the values.
