lable text syntax

I have a lable (lblPathway) I wanted added to an existing windows form.

I want the lable to read what is pulled over by a dataadapter.

I've created a dataset from this adapter (dsPathway) and it contains two fields

fieldA, fieldB


If fieldA = 1(it's a bit 1 or 0) then I want it to display some text and a FieldB. else I want to display only fieldB.


so  something like   If dsPathway.fieldA = '1' then  lblPathway = "IMG + dspathway.fieldb.text"  Else lblPathway = DsPathway.text

so does this look correct?  do I need a function?

Thanks in advance.

Is this syntax correct?

You need to assign the desired value to lblPathway.Text, not just lblPathway. On the other hand, fieldB most likely wouldn't have a .Text designation; the field itself is simply a text item. If fieldA is a numeric field, you wouldn't put quotes around it when you're doing the comparison.

So your code would probably be more like:

If dsPathway.fieldA = 1 Then
   lblPathway.Text = "IMG" & dsPathway.fieldB
Else
   lblPathway.Text = dsPathway.fieldB
End If

The key to whether fieldA references need to be in quotes is whether or not the field is defined as numeric, not whether it has numbers in it. If it's defined as a string (text) but the text is all numbers, you'll need to put a quote around "1"; if the database definition is of a numeric datatype, you wouldn't use the quotes. VB's Intellisense will tell you which is correct.
