Using Global Variables as Counters

Using Global Variables as Counters

Question:
I am trying to put a counter in my program which will keep track of how many times a command button is pressed.I know it is simple but I can’t figure it out.

Answer:
In the declarations section of your form, dimension an integer variable called Count or something like that (Dim Count as integer). Then, in the Click event of the button, add 1 to Count (Count = Count + 1). At some point, you may want to display the number of presses, so you can do a Message box and display it like this: MsgBox “Number of Presses: ” & cstr(Count) Put that line of code in another command button click event, or wherever.
