Well, I am pretty much a newb working on an assignment for my Vb class. I have a little problem I hope someone may be able to help me with. I have created a menu on my form called Country. Under this there are are menus called United States, Canada, Japan, and Mexico. When one of these items is checked it should display a picture box with the corresponding countries flag. I have written a Sub procedure to allow only one menu item to be checked at a time, like radio buttons. I am then calling that procedure under my United States, Canada, Japan and Mexico menus. Everything looks correct but I am getting an error, statement is not valid in a namespace. It is underlining; Private Sub displayFlag(ByVal country as String). Would someone look at this let me know what you think? I would really appreciate it.

VB.NET:
 Private Sub displayFlag(ByVal country As String) 
 
'set everything to false 
 
unitedMenuItem.Checked = False
 
canadaMenuItem.Checked = False
 
japanMenuItem.Checked = False
 
mexicoMenuItem.Checked = False
 
unitedPicturebox.Visible = False
 
canadaPicturebox.Visible = False
 
japanPicturebox.Visible = False
 
mexicoPicturebox.Visible = False
 
'now figure out which country you want 
 
'check the correct menu item and display the flag 
 
Select Case country
 
Case "united"
 
unitedMenuItem.Checked = True
 
unitedPicturebox.Visible = True
 
Case "canada"
 
canadaMenuItem.Checked = True
 
canadaPicturebox.Visible = True
 
Case "japan"
 
japanMenuItem.Checked = True
 
japanPicturebox.Visible = True
 
Case "mexico"
 
mexicoMenuItem.Checked = True
 
mexicoPicturebox.Visible = True
 
End Select
 
End Sub

Here are the menu's

VB.NET:
Private Sub unitedMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles unitedMenuItem.Click
 
' Show the United States Flag. 
 
displayFlag("united")
 
 
 
End Sub
 
Private Sub canadaMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles canadaMenuItem.Click
 
' Show the Canada Flag. 
 
displayFlag("canada")
 
 
 
End Sub

Thanks in advance.
