Is there a way to DIM a variable and set it on the same line?

For example:
Dim test as String = "Hello"

OK, I guess my real problem is that I'm trying to do this under the Option Explicit so the entire Module can use the same variable and its value.

What I'm trying to do is the variable IPAddress and set it, so all my connections us the same variable instead of having to set it within each function.

Thanks,

in vb6 or lower:
Dim test as string: test="Hello"

in vb.net:

Dim test as string = "Hello"

Not sure I understand you there- why not make it a global variable?

[Public] Dim IPAddress As String

Public IPAddress As String: IPAddress = "10.31.30.26"

Error = Compile Error - Invalid outside procedure

you cannot initialize a variable outside a procedure.

what are you using the variable for?
possibly, you only want a constant?

Public Const IPAddress As String = "10.31.30.26"

If you want to be able to change it:


Private gIPAddress As String

Public property Get IPAddress as string
  If gIpAddress = empty
    gIpAddress = "10.31.30.26"
  end if
  IPAddress = gIpAddress
End property

public Property Let IPAddress ( nv as string )
  gIpAddress = nv
End Property
