What references should I add to make "Dim", "For", "Integer" and Next" to work in my UI?

    Question

  • Hello,

    I'm creating a VB UI and I added a text fields and a button to rest the text fields. I'm using the following code to reset the text field using a button.

    "

     private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            {
              Dim i as Integer
      Dim tboxes(4) as String = New String() {"Text1","Text2","Text3","Text4"} 
       For i = 0 To 3 
        'set the value to "" 
        Next i  
            }

    "

    But none of the functions are working and its saying the following message when I hover over it.

    "The type or namespace "Dim" could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference? )"

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Shaped

  • The following makes a List(Of TextBox) at form level but could be private to the procedure. This is better than a list of string that you would then need to cast to a TextBox.

    Private tboxes As New List(Of TextBox)
    Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        tboxes.AddRange({TextBox1, TextBox2, TextBox3, TextBox4})
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
    
        tboxes.ForEach(Sub(tb)
                            tb.Clear()
                        End Sub)
    End Sub

    C#

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Windows.Forms;
    
    namespace WindowsFormsApplication1
    {
        public partial class Form1 : Form
        {
            public Form1()
            {
                InitializeComponent();
            }
    
            private void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            {
                tBoxes.ForEach(tb => tb.Clear());
            }
            private List<TextBox> tBoxes;
            private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            {
                tBoxes = new List<TextBox>() {TextBox1,TextBox2,TextBox3, TextBox4 };
            }
        }
    }
