| i'm new to visual basic and i want to make a 2 player game where player1
inputs a number and player2 has to guess it
| i'm having trouble in finding ways to hide user inputs so that player2 has
to actually guess the number
There could be different options. A password
input. Or maybe a custom design. For instance,
#1 enters "21" and clicks a button, which then
puts "21" into texbox 2. But textbox 2
is red background with red forecolor. If #2
guesses the number then textbox 2 background
turns white to show the matching number in red.
.... Just an idea. You could use asll sorts of methods.
As Evertjian said, this group is for VBS. VBScript
is similar to VB, but it's text-based code with no
data types. Everything is a variant. VBS is very
similar to the most primitive version of VB.
VB refers to VB5 or 6. This is pretty much
the last active group:
Then there's also VB.Net. Some people who
don't know about VB call VB.Net VB. So it can
get confusing. VB.Net is very different from
both VB and VBS. VB is to VB.Net sort of like
C++ is to Java. VB is used to write compiled
software that uses ActiveX controls, COM,
and the Win32 API. VB.Net mainly uses the
.Net runtime, similar to Java, and creates
"assemblies" that run JIT-compiled.
If you're using VB.Net thre are also newsgroups
for that, but I don't remember what they are offhand.
Do a search of group names for "dotnet".
If those are no longer busy then another
option would be to join the Microsoft Web forums.
Unfortunately, those are web-based, so the
format is very inefficient. Also, you have to
join and the groups are moderated by Microsofties.
The result is more a marketing venue than a
