Hi
I have a broblem with my label text.

The code is

  Public Class Form5

    Dim a As Integer
    Dim currentDate As DateTime = DateTime.Now
    Dim jaarnu As Integer = currentDate.Year

    Private Sub Form5_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        timeLeft = 10
        Label30.Text = jaarnu
        Dim currentDate As DateTime = DateTime.Now
        Dim days As Integer = currentDate.Date.Month

            End If
        End If
    End Sub

    End Class

My question is why is label29.text empty ?

when i leave the code
Private Sub ComboBox10_SelectedIndexChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles
bla
bla
End sub

away then my label29.text is loading

Thanks in advice John

I thought a broblem is a problem with your bro?

But the only thing I think I see, and I'm not sure because I can't do the same in VB here, is that I always want to set the text AFTER I have created or moved my object.

Try that.

i changed

timeLeft = 10
        Label30.Text = jaarnu
        Dim currentDate As DateTime = DateTime.Now
        Dim days As Integer = currentDate.Date.Month
        Dim dagmaadn As String = String.Format("{0:dddd d MMMM}", DateTime.Now)

        Label28.Text = String.Format("{0:dddd d MMMM yyyy}", DateTime.Now)
        Label29.Text = dagmaadn
        Label29.Location = New System.Drawing.Point(Label30.Location.X - Label29.Width - 5, Label30.Location.Y)
        ComboBox10.Text = String.Format("{0:MMMM}", DateTime.Now)

into

 timeLeft = 10
        Dim currentDate As DateTime = DateTime.Now
        Dim days As Integer = currentDate.Date.Month
        Dim dagmaadn As String = String.Format("{0:dddd d MMMM}", DateTime.Now)
        Label30.Text = jaarnu
        Label28.Text = String.Format("{0:dddd d MMMM yyyy}", DateTime.Now)
        Label29.Text = dagmaadn
        Label29.Location = New System.Drawing.Point(Label30.Location.X - Label29.Width - 5, Label30.Location.Y)
        ComboBox10.Text = String.Format("{0:MMMM}", DateTime.Now)

so i just put "Label30.Text = jaarnu" after the dims
and now it works perfect.
But i still do not know why
i load the form first and i change nothing in combobox.

That makes sense. I'm surprised Visual Studio didn't balk at using variables before they were declared.
(Dim is where such is declared in VB)

Oke thanks
I do know it now for the next time.
