Hey ya'll

For one of my assignments I gotta produce some small VB programs.
One of them has to be a menu. A menu that does whatever I want it to. I can't find any tutorials that help :|

I have Visual Basic.Net 2003.
I know how to ADD the menu items. BUT i dunno how to code them to do what I want.
This is how I want my menu to be:

File >> Open. Save. Exit
Edit >> Copy. Paste. Remove.

and maybe another menu item....

SO I'd like some menu tutorials where I can get ideas from or help direct from you guys.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.! :)

Double Click The Menu Item, And Add The Code To The Menu Item

Hey ya'll
I know how to ADD the menu items. BUT i dunno how to code them to do what I want.

:S

oh, duh... read that all wrong. Add an OpenFileDialog, and a SaveFileDialog to the form. Double click the menu item for Open, and put:

OpenFileDialog1.ShowDialog()
MsgBox(OpenFileDialog1.FileName)

Double Click on the Quit or Exit menu And Put:

end

Double Click on the Save Menu and put:

SaveFileDialog1.ShowDialog()
MsgBox(SaveFileDialog1.FileName)

That's a pretty good start.

thanks again
it worked :)
I've figured out how to do the copy paste remove thing :)

Another question.

How do I have it so that only the highlighted text is copied from one text box to another. Instead of all the text in one box to another ?

Clipboard.SetText(TextBox1.SelectedText) :)

if that answers your question, you can mark the thread as solved.

yup. that's the answer.
cheers mate :)

one LAST question. using the openfiledialog tool, how do I open a txt file so that it displays in the text box or list box?

that is my final question

cheers 4 any help

Didn't check if VB.NET 2003 supports all these features, but here's the code

OpenFileDialog1.CheckFileExists = True
OpenFileDialog1.CheckPathExists = True
OpenFileDialog1.DefaultExt = "txt"
OpenFileDialog1.FileName = ""
OpenFileDialog1.Filter = "Text Files (*.txt)|*.txt|All Files (*.*)|*.*"
OpenFileDialog1.Multiselect = False
If OpenFileDialog1.ShowDialog = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
   TextBox1.Text = My.Computer.FileSystem.ReadAllText(OpenFileDialog1.FileName)
End If

And I suggest starting a new thread for each different question. That helps both those who answer the questions and those who search for a solution to their problem :)
