Class initiation problem - really simple to solve I would imagine

Hi All,

I am new to VB.NET 2005 programming and tried to create a class and then call if from the click event of a button. I think I have defined it correctly, but VS will not let me compile it saying there is an error. Please could somebody point out what I need to do to fix it.

Here is the class:
Public Class clsGameSequence

    Private m_objSequence() As String

    Public Property objSequence() As Array
        Get
            Return m_objSequence
        End Get
        Set(ByVal objTempArray As Array)
            m_objSequence = objRandSequence(objTempArray)
        End Set
    End Property

    Private Function objRandSequence(ByVal objSourceArray() As String) As String()
        Dim objReturnArray(objSourceArray.GetUpperBound(0)) As String
        Array.Copy(objSourceArray, objReturnArray, objSourceArray.Length)

        Dim ranR As New Random
        Dim intIndex As Integer
        Dim strTemp As String
        For i As Integer = 0 To objReturnArray.Length - 1
            intIndex = ranR.Next(0, objReturnArray.Length)
            strTemp = objReturnArray(i)
            objReturnArray(i) = objReturnArray(intIndex)
            objReturnArray(intIndex) = strTemp
        Next

        Return objReturnArray
    End Function

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim origArray() As String = {"Ann", "Bob", "Cole", "Doug", "Eric", "Fran", "Greg", "Hope"}
        Dim randArray() As String = objSequence(origArray)

        Debug.Print(String.Join(", ", origArray))
        Debug.Print(String.Join(", ", randArray))
    End Sub
End Class

**** and this is how I call it on the click event in the form
    Private Sub RandomSequenceToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles RandomSequenceToolStripMenuItem.Click
        Dim origArray() As String = {"Ann", "Bob", "Cole", "Doug", "Eric", "Fran", "Greg", "Hope"}

        Dim newRand As clsGameSequence
        newRand = New clsGameSequence()
        newRand.Set(origArray)


        Dim randArray() As String = objSequence(origArray)

        Debug.Print(String.Join(", ", origArray))
        Debug.Print(String.Join(", ", randArray))

    End Sub

It's not too clear here but I am sure if you copied it into your fav IDE it would color it all nice.

Thanks in advance!

well for starters, i could point out that in this line of the RandomSequenceToolStripMenuItem_Click call,

newRand.Set(origArray)

you may be meaning to do this instead:

newRand.objSequence = origArray

Ok, so there is no "Set" method as such it just depends on which side of the '=' sign you put the call. Above it sets it and if I were do do origArray = newRand.objSequence would be the get method.

Just clarifying that bit. Using my new found knowledge, I changed this statement too:

Dim randArray() As String = objSequence(origArray)
to
Dim randArray() As String = newRand.objSequence

(incase anyone wants to know)

Thanks newyuppie for your help, full points to you!
