Using the WITH Operator

Question:
This code is in pascal how can i implement it in VB ?
   with treasuremap do
      move

Answer:
VB 3 does not support the With operator. (version 4 does, BTW) You'll have to pass the treasuremap record to the Move procedure as a parameter. In VB4 you can use the With/End With pair to save yourself loads of typing when you're changing multiple properties of an object. For instance, in v3.0 if you wanted to change several properties of a command button you would have to type:

 frmMain.Command1.Caption = "Different Caption"
 frmMain.Command1.Enabled = True
 frmMain.Command1.Visible = True
 frmMain.Command1.Default = True
Using the With command the above code would look like:
With frmMain.Command1.
     .Caption = "Different Caption"
     .Enabled = True
     .Visible = True
     .Default = True
End With
