A few things you may not have known

Just a few things about vb that will probably be helpful to you once in a while.

Did you know you can set boolean variables to mathematical equations? For example:

Dim blnMyBoolean As Boolean

blnMyBoolean = (1 + 1 = 2)

This would assign the variable a True value. On the other hand, this...

blnMyBoolean = (1 + 1 = 3)

...would give the variable a False value.
You can also use greater than or less than:

blnMyBoolean = (1 < 2) 'true

This is useful if you're making a math quiz program or something or you use boolean variables that test numbers.

Another good tip I know that saves time is a quick way to reverse boolean variables. For example, say you have a Command Button that Enables or Disables a timer. Instead of using an if, just do this:

Private Sub Command1_Click()

Timer1.Enabled = Not Timer1.Enabled

End Sub

You can also use this with Visible, or any other boolean variable.

I hope these two quick tips helped you. No need to vote, I just felt like uploading this.
