I would like to have a command button that would dial a number, via my modem, that is in a text box.  What code do I need in the command button click?

Lee you would need to use MSCOM control i think its the name of it. To connect. I am interested in this myself. Has anyone can offer me a book on communication for VB programming ? I'd appriciate a lot. Also can i use that control to connect to computers and have a simple chat program going ?Thanks

in a normal setup I have it here

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\MSDN98\98VSa\1033\SAMPLES\VB98\Dialer\DIALER.VBP"

if it isn't there or not on the disk then look for it on the CD, or download it from the webreference I gave earlier.
