I'm having an odd issue as I try to learn VB.Net out of a book. I'm using Visual Studio .Net 2003, but I have Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition installed as well. It tells me to put this code in:

Private Sub Form1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Click
Dim frmOutput As New Output()
fromOutput.ShowDialog()


Me.BackColor = Color.FromKnownColor(CInt(Int(150 * Rnd()) + 1))

after the part that says Windows Form Designer generated code. There is a second form called Output that has a label thingy with some text in it. For some reason, every time I type this in, the parenthesis after As New Output disappears and I get an error compiling. Can someone help me figure this out?

    Hi,
    are you 100% percent sure that there exist (in code of your second form) another class with
    [code]Public Class Output[/code]
    at it's beggining?

    But
    Color.FromKnownColor(CInt(Int(150 * Rnd()) + 1))
    is quite a strange line of code .. FromKnownColor expects parameter of type System.Drawing.KnownColor, not integer..

    What error do you exactly recieve?
