    There's a new forum for hard core technobabble. Yes, my friends, Techoff is the place to sound off on anything technical as long as it is somehow related to computing.

    Well done, mindragon. The case-insensitivity of VB momentarily threw me off, I was going to mention that the object question is not in fact the object Question. But on to your question.

    When you left-click the mouse when its pointer is on top of an object that fires an onclick event, a consumer of the event receives an event notification from said object and responds as it must by executing code in an event handler. Is this what you're asking?

    Keep on posting,

    Dim Question AS String

    If you assume a Varient, VB will have to make more decisions and allocate more memory, and this will slow down your app. Not to be a bean counter, but as long as we're in a the techoff... your program traps the user from entering any input. Instead, try updating a label or textbox.

    How about:

    Dim Question As String = "How does the _click function work in Visual Basic?"

    Why can't I create a folder called 'con' in Win XP?

    Con is a reserved term in Windows. Other ones include:

  • AUX
  • COM1
  • COM2
  • COM3
  • COM4
  • LPT1
  • LPT2
  • LPT3
  • NUL

    Just curious, what does "con" stands of and why is it reserved?

    i can see that other terms like "COM1" means com port! (correct me if i am wrong again Sad )

    Any tips?

    That's a good question. My hunch is that con is a generic Windows way of expressing connection or something that has to do with connectivity.
