I need to re-populate board after all buttons have been selected.

I've created a Jeopardy style game. What I need to do is re-populate the board of buttons with new questions once all the questions have been answered. When a button has been selected, the text is changed to " ". I've created a function to check if all the button text is blank but it doesn't seem to be calling for the next round of questions. Can anyone see what is wrong?

In your RoundOver method try changing this...

  If TypeOf ctrl Is Button And ctrl.Text = "" = True Then
                bRoundOver = False
                Exit For
            End If

to this...

  If TypeOf ctrl Is Button And ctrl.Text = "" Then
                bRoundOver = False
                Exit For
            End If

Also you are missing some code, however I am guessing you just mistakenly forgot to post part of your code. Your RoundOver method ends and the next bit of code starts with 'If bRoundOver = True Then' and this code ends with an End Sub.

If you find a Button that is not " " then the round isn't over...because you have questions left right?

    Friend Function RoundIsOver() As Boolean
        For Each ctrl As Control In Me.Controls
            If TypeOf ctrl Is Button AndAlso ctrl.Text <> " " Then
                Return False
            End If
        Next
        Return True
    End Function

Call it like this:

    If RoundIsOver() Then
        ...
    End If

Thanks, I think I almost have it now, but how do I check to see if all the buttons are " " after each one is selected?

Huh?...the RoundIsOver() function I gave you will return TRUE if all the buttons are " "...otherwise it returns False.

So just call the RoundIsOver() function in the Click() handler of the buttons or from where ever you execute code after a question is answered.
