That depends a bit on what version of VB you're using. In VB.Net I believe you can assign initial values in the statement which defines the array.

In VB6, you can't do that. You have to assign them one by one, or in some sort of looping structure such as a FOR loop.

But whatever version you're using, the whole point of an array is that you refer to the individual elements within it by their index number. For example, to assign the value 5 to occurence 1 you would say
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. List(1) = 5
It's worth noting that VB will always start the array at occurrence zero, unless you tell it otherwise. So for instance, if you defined List(5) the entries will actually be numbered from 0 to 5. Pretty stupid, but that's MS for you. I recommend always specifying the exact dimensions of the array. For example Private List(1 To 5).

Do a static declaration like so:

Private m_CustomColors() As Integer = {&H0, &HFFFFFF, &H0, &HFFFFFF, &H0, &HFFFFFF, &H0, &HFFFFFF, &HFFFFFF, &H0, &HFFFFFF, &H0, &HFFFFFF, &H0, &HFFFFFF, &H0}

I used this to initialize a ColorPicker dialog's custom colors to display an alternating black and white pattern.

This provides a 16 element array.

Thanks for that.

Readers need to keep in mind this is VB.Net code and won't work in VB6.
