Hi, so I have a control that is created in the code behind and generates fine but I can't figure out how to create an event handler for it. I've found plenty of examples for it in C sharp, but none of them seem to apply to VB. What I want to do is essentially this:
myDropDownList.SelectedIndexChanged = "Event to do here"
but it doesn't seem to work for me.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
I would like to create a simple program, like a game, but so far without any graphical interface. Only a code, supported with some numbers, so that the user will know whats going on in the background.
I was thinking of creating a racing game (like formula 1 or sometihng similar), with available data (attributes) like:
Driver: age, agility, concentration, experiance, stamina,...
Car: engine, chassis, tyres
