     This is a tip that will save many of you VB Programmers a lot of time. It is a piece of code that allows the user in one line of code to create a toggle system. Enjoy


A Tip to Save Time
by Adam Lane

Say you want to make a toggle system, eg: You have a form and in that form you have a Picture Box and a Command Button and you want to make a project where whenever you click on the Command Button, the Picture Box will go invisible/visible (opposite to what it's current state is). Instead of having to write this boring code:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
If Picture1.Visible = True Then
Picture1.Visible = False
ElseIf Picture1.Visible = False Then
Picture1.Visible = True
End If
End Sub

You can Replace it with this easy code:

Private Sub Command1_Click() Picture1.Visible = Not Picture1.Visible
End Sub

Now, I know that code is simple and the majority of you probably already knew it. But I know that there would be many people in the VB World that didn't.
