Creating a Login Window

Question:
I have been attempting to write some code that accepts info from text boxes labeled "Login" and "Password." I then need to check the password up to x amount of times before allowing access or displaying a go away message. A message box after each failed attempt in also in order.

Can you help me?

Answer:
What you need is a counter outside of the form that is declared as a global variable. In the startup routine for your application, such as in Sub Main, set that variable equal to zero. After that, each time the user attempts to login and fails, increment the counter. When the counter reaches "x" times, exit the application with an appropriate message box.
