Simple Question

P: n/a
Hello,

I am using a beginners book on VB .net and already stumped....when using
this code (below) , it will tell me that MsgBox is not valid. This is a very
simple program and I can't figure out what the problem is:

Public Class Form1

Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

#Region " Windows Form Designer generated code "

Public Sub New()

MyBase.New()

'This call is required by the Windows Form Designer.

InitializeComponent()

'Add any initialization after the InitializeComponent() call

End Sub

'Form overrides dispose to clean up the component list.

Protected Overloads Overrides Sub Dispose(ByVal disposing As Boolean)

If disposing Then

If Not (components Is Nothing) Then

components.Dispose()

End If

End If

MyBase.Dispose(disposing)

End Sub

'Required by the Windows Form Designer

Private components As System.ComponentModel.IContainer

'NOTE: The following procedure is required by the Windows Form Designer

'It can be modified using the Windows Form Designer.

'Do not modify it using the code editor.

<System.Diagnostics.DebuggerStepThrough()> Private Sub InitializeComponent()

'

'Form1

'

Me.AutoScaleBaseSize = New System.Drawing.Size(5, 13)

Me.ClientSize = New System.Drawing.Size(292, 266)

Me.Name = "Form1"

Me.Text = "Form1"

End Sub

#End Region

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, _

ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

MsgBox("Hi There")

End

End Sub

End Class

That's interesting because in an application I made before using this book,
MsgBox worked and this book seems to use MsgBox throughout and it is a
VB.NET book.

MsgBox is a VB function and is still valid in VB .NET. However, this
function requires importing the Microsoft.VisualBasic namespace. By default,
this namespace is added to all newly created projects. (Project -->
myproject properties --> Common Properties --> Imports). So you should be
able to use this function by default. If its throwing up an error, you might
want to check whether you have the namespace included. However, as Matt
suggested, you might want to use MessageBox.Show instead (I believe it has
more options).

hope that helps..

It gives me the squiggly underline and says:

"MsgBox is a namespace, and so it is not a valid expression"

But when I open a previous solution with MsgBox it doesn't give me this
error..suggestions?

had a "duh" moment...the book made you name the solution the same as MsgBox
and that is a no no..figured it out.

Thanks!
