Coming from the C++ world I  find it strange that there is not an auto increment operator "++" which would be extremely benficial when handling variables with long names.

I was wondering if there is an undocument feature, to enable this.

You could declare a sub

Public Sub inc(ByRef x)

    x = x + 1

End Sub

but then you need to

call inc(c)

inc(c) won't work!

sorry to correct you deighton but you you remove the call and then run the line like following

int c

he will do the same than

call inc(c) but it's less code

This is 'new' since VB4

I don't think that byref axually passes it by reference... I think it just makes a copy of the variable, and sends a referance to the copy to the function... perhaps I'm wrong here...

Yep, you are. Byref actually passes it by reference. Honest.

Steve, although I understand your disappointment with VB's failure to offer such functionality, giving deighton a "B" for his answer is not really fair: "don't shoot the messenger"...
