i'm a real newbie. i have practically 0 experience with any sort of programming language.
i thought it would be cool to make some sort of chat program to send messages to another computer on my network. i use net send, but i'd like to make it easier to use.
so i have something like this: shell "net.exe send <pcname> message"
my question is, how do i get a string from a text box into the command under message? do i have to use something different altogether?
i defined a variable k = val(box.text) | box is my text box. i can't replace "message" with "k", it just sends the letter k to the receiving computer.
just need a short answer if you feel compelled to help me out =)
i know there are other programs that do it, but i wanna learn how to program.
