i am learning VB.net from a book and in the book we're doing an exersise on strings. when i try to use the left and right functions, they return an error...
and a tip pops up when i type left saying something to do with pixel position.
now i can get it to work by typing "microsoft.visualbasic.left" so i'm wondering if i have visual studio not set up right or something?
thanks
