Visual Basic | Coding in VB.NET exercise | Create a form to make it easier to display a message
This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
You can learn how to do this exercise on the relevant Wise Owl classroom training course (sadly for the moment only in the UK).
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 frmLazyMessageBox.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:
The idea is that you can display a message with the title and contents entered in the form.
Attach code to the left-hand button, and start a command as shown below. Visual Studio will show you the 21 argument signatures that you can choose from:
Visual Studio will automatically work out which of the 21 signatures you are trying to use.
The idea now is that a user can fill in any message. For example:
One possible message a user might want to share with the world.
Finish the code attached to the Show message button so that it displays a message similar to that shown below:
Obviously the message's title and contents will depend on what you type into the form.
You can include carriage returns by concatenating your text with VbCrLf.
That's it! You can now close down any open forms.
