Here is the code
==========

Module Module1

    Sub Main()

        'Reading values

        Console.WriteLine("Please input the following info !")
        Console.WriteLine()

        Console.Write("Enter your name : ")
        Dim x As String = CStr(Console.ReadLine())
        Console.Write("Enter your age : ")
        Dim y As Integer = CInt(Console.ReadLine())
        Console.Write("Enter your dob : ")
        Dim z As DateTime = CDate(Console.ReadLine())
        Console.Write("Enter your gender (M/F) : ")
        Dim a As Char = Console.ReadLine()

        'Need gap

        Console.WriteLine()

        'Writing values

        Console.WriteLine("You have input the following info !")
        Console.WriteLine()

        Console.WriteLine("Your name : " & x)
        Console.WriteLine("Your age : " & y)
        Console.WriteLine("Your dob : " & z)
        Console.WriteLine("Your gender (M/F) : " & a)

        Console.ReadLine()

    End Sub

End Module

How we can restrict the user input for name (let us say 10 characters) while he is typing at console window ? Appreciate your time and patience !!

I Googled "VB .NET datatypes" and found a number of pages that list types available in VB .NET.  

For that matter, what would you guess a type that stores a single character might be called?  Languages have some funky keywords, but most aren't THAT bad.  (-:
