You can use Call Stack window. If it is not there in , you can add by just perssing Ctrl+Alt+C or go to Debug menu - > Window -> Call stack while debugging.

no im looking to do something like

PrintToFile(date & "Connection - useing form/sub " & Form.Name & "/" & Form.Sub.Name & VbCrLf)

or something like that that will print the forms name ie Form1.vb and the Sub Form1_Load

Something like this?

        MsgBox("Executing in class '" & Me.Name & "', function '" & Reflection.MethodInfo.GetCurrentMethod.Name)

Error      3      'Name' is not a member of 'IrcMX.EndPoint'.      D:\temp\phreikchat\phreikchat\phreikchat\IrcMX\src\connectivity\endpoint.vb      569      70      IrcMX.Net

Is EndPoint your form?

I hope you are doing from VS. not using vbc command utility. And make sure your class is inheriting from System.Windows.Forms.form class.

Where you are executing this above code? I hope ZeonFlash's code will work out for your requirement.
