Hello. I have sadly been trying to solve this since 1pm, (its now 9)

Basicaly i have a single instance project

when a user right clicks an image it trys to host it. i use this code (yes this really did take me all them hours to get)

Private Sub MyApplication_StartupNextInstance(ByVal sender As Object, _
              ByVal e As StartupNextInstanceEventArgs) _
              Handles Me.StartupNextInstance
            e.BringToForeground = True
            MainForm.Visible = True
            MainForm.WindowState = FormWindowState.Normal
            MainForm.BringToFront()
            MainForm.Activate()
            Application.DoEvents()
            If e.CommandLine.Count > 0 Then
                For Each arg As String In e.CommandLine
                    'Process the commandline args
                    Dim Dir As String = arg
                    ' Dim fi As New System.IO.FileInfo(Dir)
                    ' Dim sTemp As String = fi.Name
                    MessageBox.Show(Dir)

                Next
            End If

        End Sub

The msgbox is only there to show me i caught the arg. My question is how can i use this info in my application? every google link is red. i have really tryed searching for the problem for hours before asking.

I need to add the DIR varible to txtFilePath.Text and then call my sub Call UploadPicture()

help :(

to be honest im not quite sure what exactly is the problem :$
can you explain it a bit more detailed? like what does not work at the moment and what it should do.
