Hi Guys. First let me say that this site is fantastic and the knowledge spread is vast.

OK, now I'm somewhat of a noob when it comes to VB.net 2008 and have not long been coding with it. I came across a problem with the cancel button on an "input box". When the user clicks it, the program crashes. Is there any coding that I can use to stop this happening?

Many thanks and keep up the great work.

Welcome Redserpent.

InputBox function returns zero length string if cancel button is clicked.

Test this code:

Dim m As String = InputBox("enter name : ")
 MsgBox(m.Length)
