I am using VB 5.  When I enter the LastName, after the program is running, then nothing happens.
How is this explained.

Reply from Richard Rost:

Harry, I would have to see your program to tell you for sure. Honestly, I've NEVER used VB 5, although I know it has a LOT of bugs and other problems. I jumped right from VB 4 to VB 6.

Learning Logic Comment from Philausifur @ 1/27/2011
The book Logic for Dummies coverers logic exaustively, It gets sophiticated.  Simple logic is much easier.  You might try wikapedia.

How do I move the properties window from the top to the right side?

Reply from Richard Rost:

You should just be able to click and drag to move the different panes and windows around the screen. I usually leave the properties window "docked" to the right side.

Just something i've noticed, programming has a "symbolic logic" to it. Perhaps a good prerequisite to programming could be a minor symbolic logic class just to get a future programming student in the groove so to speak on thinking in logic terms?  (But then again, this is all kinda new to me except for failed attemtps in the past to learn programming on my own) So a symbolic logic course is probably a lame idea LOL

Hi Richard:
How do I download the Project and forms that you created in each of VB lessons?
When I started taking your lessons I found it very difficult to emulate your instructions, with one monitor. I had and old monitor that I had keep as a spare. I installed it on my system (Windows SP Professional) as a second monitor. Now I view your courses on it and constructed your programs on the other. Thought you might want to pass this on to your students. It sure makes it easy to work along with your instructions and displays.
