Default Chapter 7 MesageBox Buttons

I am having problems with Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK. Windows.Forms is underlined in red and it tells me Forms is not a member of Windows. I have read and re-read all of the book up to chapter 7 retyped the code over and over again and even copied and pasted from the examples and still get the same result. I did find that if I copy and paste the file MessageBox Buttons.vbproj from the folder MessageBox Buttons From the examples downloaded then it works fine. Can You please help tell me what I am doing wrong.

Many Thanks

Default VB

Your call to MessageBox.A show needs to pass MessageBoxButtons.YesNo to get the Yes/No buttons instead of the OK button.

Default Ch 7 MessageBoxOptions

I ran into the same problem on chapter 7, page 214/215. The sample code would work fine, but the code would not work in the version I created, even though the code matched.

I solved it by making these changes...

Instead of MessageBoxButtons.OKCancel I changed it to...
System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxButtons.OKCancel

And,
Instead of Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK I changed it to...
System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK
