hi everyone, if someone could help me out with this id be grateful.....

im trying to make an additional x appear every line using a for next loop...like below:


im trying to print that to a label.....heres my code so far:

Dim i As Integer

For i = 1 To 10
Label1.Text = "x" * i & vbCrLf
Next i

i know i cant multiply "x" times i, thats really what i want to know......thanks to anyone that can help me out....

Typical school assignment - we won't help you cheat by giving you the code, the purpose of such assignments are for you to learn, not to just copy code written by somebody else.

ok, i understand what your saying, but im not asking for the code, ive been at this for hours, ive googled it, and my book is no help either....just maybe someone could explain what im doing wrong, without giving me the actual code....

Take out the "x" * i, as thats obvious. Look into +=.

Take out the "x" * i, as thats obvious. You're going to have 2 loops(or I would), and I would look into +=.

ok i will mess with that some, thanks.

ok i figured out, thanks to that info that brandoe85 gave me.....heres the code incase you dont believe me:

Dim i As Integer, StrOutput As String
Dim j As Integer

For j = 1 To 10
For i = 1 To 10
StrOutput += "x"
Label1.Text += StrOutput & vbCrLf
Next i
Next j

so to brandoe85, thanks for the help, u saved me from failing this assignment, and to liorean, thanks for being cynical instead of helpful....

Hmm...I edited my post about 2 loops, as i'm reading it again...I don't know why I said 2 loops(i know im retarded :0). It's really just a matter of 1 loop. And if you play around with your code i'm sure your going to realize it to :D

yea, i modified it quite a bit, that causes it to loop forever, i got it now, it just does the loop 10 times now...thanks again bro.
