Using Value Types
In this paragraph you learn to use value types. The following demonstration assumes you have created a new Visual Basic project for the Console (see Chapter 2 for details). Listing 4.1 shows how you can declare variables storing value types. You can write the code inside the
Main method for learning purposes.
You can declare variables of the desired value types using the
Dim keyword followed by the identifier of the variable and by the
As clause that then requires the type specification.
