Hi, here is a sample:

___________________________________________

use like this: Text1.Text = returnValue(3)

Private Function returnValue(ByVal ivalue As Integer) As String
    Select Case ivalue
    Case 0
        returnValue = "A"
    Case 1
        returnValue = "B"
    Case 2
        returnValue = "C"
    Case Else
        returnValue = "D"
    End Select
End Function

'Hope will help.
