You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

This exercise allows you to practice your debugging skills!  First add the frmChooseHobbies form from the above folder into your project.:

Hopefully it's fairly clear what this should do!

Step through the macro attached to the Show Choices button (using breakpoints where appropriate) to see what it does.  You can:

  • press F11 to step into a property or subroutine, or F10 to step over it
  • press F9 to add a breakpoint to a line of code
  • use the immediate window to inspect specific values

Add Debug.Indent and Debug.WriteLine statements to your code to get output similar to this in either the Output or the Immediate windows:
