VB question.

Hello.

I have some simple code here (attached) I generated in VS.net 2k3. I
thought I was going nuts when I did this.

The code is simple. A windows form, w/ a button. when clicked, it opens
a message box w/ the text in the code. I can put a whole lotta text in
there and the text doesn't show up in the message box, or at least from
what I can tell, but the message box will be the appropriate size to show
the text.

I've tried changing the settings in the display settings on the OS to no
go. I've run this on 3 different PC's and got the same result.

Am I missing something? If you can, take a look at the code and PLEASE
let me know what I'm missing. ps. what's in between the 'region' tags
was auto-generated by VS.net.

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.

Me.Text = "Form1"
Me.ResumeLayout(False)

End Sub

I copied your code exactly as you have it below into a Windows Forms project
and it works just fine for me.

My memory could be wrong here: I remember similar problem reported and it
could be caused by certaim anti-virus program. Try to disable your
anti-virus progam to see what happens.
