hey, i am cow and i am very, very new to visual basic. what i was wondering is how to i get another form to pop up when i click a button ( like on the toolbar for instance)? i surfed around some of the examples and edit it a little and got this:
Private Sub About_Click(Index As Integer)
what did i do wrong, whenever i run it and click the button on the toolbar ( named About) i get this message:
Rub-time error '424'
so then i click debug and it highlights:
what am i doing wrong, could some pleae hepl me out or just please get me a tutorial if you can explain it in words or whatever.

The problems is that 3 is not a valid argument.
if you use 'frmAbout.show 1' that should work
I dont understand the error 424 though, you should have got an 5 'Invalid proceedure call or argument'
Hope it helps !
thank you so much! one question though, could you please define non-modal and modal for me in vb terms or whatever?

Modal means the form will stay on top of the form who called it.
Non-modal means it won't.
Experiment with them.
ooo, i see

cow, Dward is correct about the argument, however the incorrect argument will not give you an Object Required" error, it will tell you that you have an "Invalid Procedure". The real problem you have is an error that says "Object Required", that means you dont have an object in your project named frmAbout, you have to add the frmAbout form first. You dont have to add any argument unless you want it to be Modal (Stay on top), just use
Hope that helps

Correct me if I'm wrong, but If you are a newbie, the stuff they're talking about is a bit to complex for you, right? i had the same problems when i just started... if all you want is to have a "Yes/No" question pop up when you click a button, you can use <code>MsgBox</code> but if you want to have an entirely new form appear, you need to go to "Project | Add Form" name the form whatever you want, put whatever you want on it, and then set Visible to False then have a button, that does the following when pressed:
FormName.visible = true</code>
I hope that's what you need.

Check out the Microsoft Internet Control found under Project --> Components.
Note: You have to have IE installed on both your machine and the client machine for it to work.
thanks man, now that i gots that, how do i put a page into it?

Here you go:
WebBrowser1.Navigate("C:webpage.html") 'A local page
WebBrowser1.Navigate("http://www.yahoo.com") 'A non-local page
Use the object browser found under the view menu in the IDE to find more about each function the WebBrowser control has.
And make sure to replace "WebBrowser1" with the name of your WebBrowser control.
thx A LOT MAN!! i have been wanting to find that out forever! thank you!
