What does it mean to be "Always On"?

okay then there are 2 steps to this

1. you need to do an indexof the string that is the textbox looking for
insert_job:

intposition = strtextbox.Indexof("insert_Job",0)

2. use RIGHt to display everything to the RIGHT of that inpostion from the string

dim strtexboxoutput as string = RIGHT(strtextbox,inposition)


that should do the trick

What am I doing wrong?  It have -1 for my intposition and that does not seem correct.  Also I cant compile with inposition on the last line.

Here is what I have

 Dim intposition
        Dim strtextbox As String = TextBox1.Text

        intposition = strtextbox.IndexOf("insert_Job", 0)
        MsgBox(intposition)

        Dim strtexboxoutput As String = Strings.Right(strtextbox, inposition)

this works

       Dim str123 As String
        str123 = txt1.Text
        MessageBox.Show(str123)

        Dim intposition As Integer
        intposition = str123.IndexOf("insert", 0)
        MessageBox.Show(intposition)

        Dim stroutput As String = str123.Substring(intposition)

        MessageBox.Show(stroutput)

Take the time to define the type of your variables. It prevents many types of bugs:

Dim intposition as Integer.

IndexOf is sensitive to case. According to your original question, you should look for insert_job with a lowercase 'j'.

The last line does not work because you forgot the 't' in the third character of intposition.

JamesBurger is right
I didnt even see the syntax errors on that when you posted until he pointed them out. Slow and steady does win the race :)
