This lesson describes the global variables in Visual Basic .NET
A global variable is a variable with global scope, and unlike the local variable can be accessed from anywhere.
Meaning when the variable is available globally, any code in your application has access to read and modify this variable.
For storing global variables in VB.NET you "usually" have a Module because it's static and doesn't have to be instantiated.
Module GlobalVariables ' sets the Form's text property (title) Public global_FormText As String = "Hello World!" End Module
Then you can call global_FormText like so:
Me.Text = global_FormText ' or Me.Text = GlobalVariables.global_FormTextPrevious Lesson | Next Lesson
