Hi, I was wondering how to create an Array of Form due to the fact that Index Property is no longer possible in VB 2005
So What I want to do, TheLearnedOne if you remember our last conversation

I need to send a message to (for example) Room 2.
What I dont undestand is, the RoomID is on a SQL databse okay, I get can it no problem in VB. But last time, you were saying it could the solution to get the frm as instance and send message to room(roomNumber)

Thats mean my rooms would be on array right ?

I don't understand your question.  Do you have the link to the previous question still?

You told me to do that:

Private m_hashRooms As New Hashtable

   Dim frm As New frmRoom(roomNumber)
   m_hashRooms.Add(roomNumber, frm)

    Public Sub SendMessageToRoom(ByVal roomNumber As Integer, ByVal message As String)
         Dim frm As frmRoom = m_hashRooms(roomNumber)
      End Sub

But the frmRoom(roomNumber) means an Array of form right?
So where or or do I create this array.  For example, when the user open the Room 1, write Hello on the chat, press send. It should send to all Room 1.  my question is Do i have to create an Array of Form for that

Sorry, I was thinking about adding an argument to the form's New constructor, and passing in a room number:

Public Sub New(ByVal roomNumber As Integer)

End Sub

Well, im confused on what i am doing.
Maybe I go too far though, im trying to create a Multi-Chat users and Rooms. There is no such examples with VB.NET and VB2005 . I didnt find. I found some for Vb6 with winsock but Its quite old now.
