That's a term used for code that breaks easily whan anything is changed. For example, once you get into the loop, the only way to get out again is to cancel the program - not a very satisfactory user experience.
Adding Cancel capability to the error boxes adds a lot of code and even more complexity. The Cancel button in the Input Box returns a "zero length string". Text = "5 grades entered" & vb New Line & "No more input allowed" End If End If input Grade.
To String, "Grade Calculator", "Enter Grade") If str_input Grade = String. Show("Nothing entered" & vb New Line & "Please enter a grade", "Error", Message Box Buttons. Information) Else If Not Is Numeric(str_input Grade) Then Message Box.
Show( "Input is not a numeric grade" & vb New Line & "Please enter a numeric grade", "Error", Message Box Buttons. Information) Else dec_grade = CDec(str_input Grade) If dec_grade It works, but the code is "brittle".
The default value for this property is True, so you don't have to modify it for the other controls.
Run the sample program on the companion CD, type something in the required Text Box, and then move to the second field.
Here's an example of a Validate event procedure that checks to see if the value entered in Text Box named Text1 is greater than 0; if it's not, it displays a message and keeps the focus on the Text Box: Take the time to worry about data validation before invalid user data comes back to haunt you later.

Ensuring that the user has entered valid data can prevent a lot of problems down the road.In VB6, you can partially automate the process using the Causes Validation property and the Validate event procedure.Back Color = &H80000005 End If End Sub If (Is Numeric(Text Box82) = true) Then will check if the textbox has a numeric value or not.Just for curiosity if someone types a space before typing the number or a space after how do you treat that?
