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 frmSimpleMessage.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.  When you run your project, you should see this:

Message form

Typing in a title and message and clicking on the button shown will display a  suitable message box - when you've written the code below, that is.

Get the Show message button to call a separate subroutine, passing in the text of the message and its title:

'display this message

Announce(txtMesssage.Text, txtTitle.Text)

Write the Announce routine, choosing names and data types for its two arguments.  When you run the application you should see this:

The final message

Your subroutine should display a standard message on screen, with the given title and text.

 

That's it!
