Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

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.

Press CTRL + D to add the file called frmButtonCounter.vb from the above folder into your project (or right click on the project and choose to add it as an existing item). 

Change your project's properties to make this the default form for your project.

Attach code to the button so that it accumulates the number of times that it's been clicked in a variable:

Counting number of clicks

You'll need to make the hidden label visible, and also update and display the value of an integer variable (which you should dimension in the declarations section at the top of your code, so that it can retain its value between clicks).

 

That's it!  Close down any forms you still have open.
