    Run time error with string, Windows Form App.Net

    Hi! I have created an application where the user inserts their name and an option of a compliment, motivation, greeting, joke, or fun fact. Once clicked, then a new form pops up with the message "Hello[Insert Name], [Insert option here]. I have created this using an if/then branch statement, and I have declared my lblResult, which is where I want the message to appear, as a string. I have been having a runtime error that says I have an unhandled exception and that my string is in the wrong format. I do not know where to go from this point, so any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Code:
     
      Dim strName As String
            strName = "Hello" & txtName.Text
            Dim strResult As String
    
            If radCompliment.Checked = True Then
                strResult = strName And "You are FABULOUS"
    
            Else
                MessageBox.Show("Please input information")
    
            End If
            If radMotivation.Checked = True Then
    
                strResult = strName And "Stay focused and never give up!"
            Else
                    MessageBox.Show("Please put in information")
                End If
            If radGreeting.Checked = True Then
                strResult = strName And "How are you today? :)"
            Else
                MessageBox.Show("Please put in information")
            End If
    
            If radJoke.Checked = True Then
                strResult = strName And "What did the computer do at lunch time? Had a byte!"
            Else
                    MessageBox.Show("Please put in information")
                End If
            If radFact.Checked = True Then
                strResult = strName And "Did you know that Banannas are curved because when they grow they gravitate towards the sun."
            Else
                    MessageBox.Show("Please put in information")
                End If

    Re: Run time error with string, Windows Form App.Net

    From the looks of it you need to replace all of those And with &

    Like so
    Code:
    strResult = strName & "What did the computer do at lunch time? Had a byte!"
    And is a logical operator & is used to combine strings.
    Always use [code][/code] tags when posting code.
