    :sign0163:I've got a quick little snippet of code that's behaving oddly.

    Code:
    myArgs = "http://www.radtechs.org"

       
    Shell"explorer.exe", myArgs )
    It pulls up two Explorer windows when running on the desktop.

    I'm running Windows XP w/.Net 1.1 and 2.0, Basic4PPC v.5.8.

    Surely I'm not doing something wrong for once?

    Only one window here:
    Code:
    Sub App_Start
        Form1.Show
        myArgs = 
    "http://www.radtechs.org"
        
    Shell"explorer",myargs )
    End Sub

    Are you invoking it in an event - maybe the event is firing more than once. You can use a global variable as an event counter, increment it in the event and check it to see how many times the event is fired.

    I was doing something wrong. Again.

    Solution:

    If a button is created dynamically, it does not need an event added to it to handle a click event.

    For instance, create a button called 'wubba'.

    Create a subroutine called wubba_Click.

    No need for an AddEvent for the click to be handled.

    Oops.
