UserControll-How to implement ival=MyUserControl (instead of  ival=MyUserControl.value)

I have a user control.
I want to be able to do:
dim iVal
iVal =MyUserControl

Like i do in checkbox control.
iVal=ckbSomeCheckbox
and get the ckbbox value.

or in TextBox control
(sText=txtSomeTextBox)

allallall,
I program in C++, and what I would do in your case is overwrite the = operator.

in c++ it will be
int operator=(const usercontrol MyUserControl)
{
   return MyUserControl.value;
}
Hope it helps, Dimkov

Operator overloading is a new in the VB world, but with VS2005 you can use it:

it should be like:

 Public Shared Operator =(ByVal MyUserControl As usercontrol ) As int
        Return MyUserControl.value

in this case, you cant acheave this thing.
The reason is, the compiler doesnt know if you want the control to return integer, or string or boolean....
Sorry I couldn't be from more help

I think it can be done since you can do so with vb controls like TextBox or Checkbox.
