explicit conversion in VB.net

Trying to clean up a warning

warning BC41999: Implicit conversion from 'System.ValueType' to 'ErrorViewer.TXTRecordType'
The warning is on the TextRecord Var

FileGet(nFileHandle, TextRecord, 1)

How come i Explicitly cast TextRecord as a System.ValueType

I'm sorry!

I thought I was in the C# forum.

Try using CType();

Hope this helps,

To explicitly cast you simply add "(ErrorViewer.TXTRecordType)" to your TextRecord var...

FileGet(nFileHandle, (ErrorViewer.TXTRecordType)TextRecord, 1)

Yeah I tried that early. I get this error.

Error  - >  'TXTRecordType' is a type in 'ErrorViewer' and cannot be used as an expression.

Thanks
