VB.NET Tutorial For Beginners – Using Arrays (Visual Basic .NET)

In this beginner Visual Basic .NET tutorial we’ll be exploring arrays and methods to create, store, and retrieve various objects and data types from them. We’ll be focusing on both 1-dimensional and 2-dimensional data collections and we’ll draw a physical representation of our array to our form.

Tutorial Features:
VB.NET Arrays – Storing information to a data collection
GDI+ Drawing – Creating a 2D grid to represent our array data
Rectangles – 2D coordinates
Randoms – Random number generation
Windows Forms – TextBox, Buttons, Labels
Classes – Creating a Class Object for a Data Collection

This is an awesome tutorial. I wanted to ask if you could do a tutorial on putting picture boxes in an Array? In this tutorial I used names in the Array like famArray(1) = “Grandma”. What I want to do is have grandma’;s picture displayed when Grandma is inside of the label (I used a label instead of text box for the output). I got it to work but I had to put a pb for each index and on top of one another so that the picture would be displayed in the same location  on the form each time. I would greatly appreciate the tutorial and I’m sure many others will also.

THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!! I couldn’t get a grip on this! My text box didn’t show nothing but thanks to you i understood and managed to make the same program with one less variable. I took out the Index and just used IndexPosition as a global variable. I also needed to add in another DisplayText when the buttons were pressed.
Tell me if this was a better idea. Thnx again 😀
