Learning to use MsgBox in Visual Basic 2015


Hello Angela!

Prompt is used to state the message to be shown in the dialog box.

Example: strname = InputBox(“Enter your name here: “, “by: JOHN HART”,”TechyV.com”)

Xpos and Ypos is used to distinguish the horizontal and the vertical position of the dialog box to be positioned in the monitor. Help file and context are used to provide context-sensitive help for the dialog box. To create a simple program that will illustrate and make use of input box or message box, just open a project in VB, just add a form, double click the form and you just need to type to follow the code below.

Public Class Form1

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

        Dim name As String

        name = InputBox("Enter your name here:", "by: JOHN HART", "TechyV.com")

        MsgBox("Hello " + name + ", welcome to TechyV.com!")

    End Sub

End Class
