I need to Dimension an array of integers and set the number of elements in the array based on the response recieved from the console.  Can someone provide an example.  I have tried the example below, but Lenth is read only.

       Dim arValues() As Integer   ' Array to store values
       Dim intElements As Integer   ' The number elements or values to be entered  
       Console.Write("Number of elements in the array (less than 100) : ")
       intElements = Console.ReadLine()
        ' arValues.Length = Int32.Parse(intElements)

I am looking for some guidance or sample code that will help me complete this.  Any information will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.  DC900

Possibly a ReDim?


Dim arValues() As Integer   ' Array to store values
Dim intElements As Integer   ' The number elements or values to be entered  
Console.Write("Number of elements in the array (less than 100) : ")
intElements = Console.ReadLine()
ReDim arValues(Int32.Parse(intElements))

Just declare the array after you read the console input:

        Dim intElements As Integer = Integer.Parse(Console.ReadLine())
        Dim arValues(i) As String
