Public Arrays

This is probably pretty lame, but I'm stuck.. I declare this in the (General)
part of Form1:

Public Whatever(8) As Integer

I get the error:
Compile Error:
Constants, fixed-length strings, arrays, user-defined types and Declare statements not allowed as Public members of object modules.

I have VB6.0.8169 and the Public statement is the only line of code in my program (currently :)  I looked in my project settings, but I didn't see anything relevent..  I'm trying to pass an array from one form to another in the w/i same project..

Thanks,

Lee

Put the Public Whatever(8) As Integer
in a module instead of in the form.

Add a Module to your project (Project->Add Module) and there you can declare the public array.  All of your code can then access it directly.

Or declare the array as Private in your form and pass it by reference to other forms.

Option Explicit
Private a(10) As Long

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    'Pass the array to another form's function
    Call Form2.test(s())
End Sub

Typo, should be:
Call Form2.test(a())

Do this in your form. You will get the feeling of a array and the syntax of a array. Also you can stop someone from going beyound a particular index in this case 8

Private a(8) As Integer

Public Property Let WhatEver(Index As Integer, nValue As Integer)
    a(Index) = nValue
End Property

Public Property Get WhatEver(Index As Integer) As Integer
    WhatEver = a(Index)
End Property
