this is one of my very first Visual Basic programs. It sucks since I didn't know VB all that well back then. Since then I've made some better versions of the game (once compsci grade below me got it as their final project assignment... *sigh*)

This was fun. The X's and O's are kind of skinny, and a little hard to see. Maybe colour and a bold font would help? I'm new to visual basic, so I don't know how to change the program yet. But good job!

why do people not read the rules? when you reply to a topic that is almost three years old, that's called necroposting, and is against compsci.ca's policy...

posting now wouldn't be more than 3 yrs old.. so here goes

how did u get the variables to remember its values across cmd boxes?

ie.
>>>>in the "new game" cmd box
turn = "p1"
>>>>in another cmd box tahts sopposed to display either X or O depending on the player order
if turn = "p1" then
cmd1.caption = "X"
else
cmd1.caption = "O"
end if

the trouble for me now is taht the turn variable gets cleared across the cmd boxes... so it would go to the else statement everytime...
idont kno if this matters anything but i changed the "private sub to public sub nd it didnt do netin...

make sure your variables have the correct scope. Those decleared inside one function or subroutine will not be visible from another. You'd need something more... global.

I mean that something like player turn should be accessable by every function, so you would want to declear that at the very top of your source file, outside of any particular sub.

copy and paste is bad because you won't understand a lot of the code your writing. anyhow u have quite a bit of problems starting with u can double click on the same button and it will switch from X to O. to fix this you can disable the button. but i'll make your life much much easier by telling you to use control arrays. basically make one button name it something than copy and paste all your other buttons. this will be much easier and a lot more efficient. if you don't take my advice and continue your going to get really screwed up and it will take you hundreds of lines of code to make when you can make it under 50 lines
cool dude
