Pass value from ArcMap to custom made VB App

Discussion created by anonymous123 on Apr 2, 2011
Hello everyone,

I am trying to create a solution with ArcView 9.3 and Visual Basic 2005 that will accomplish the following tasks:

1. User selects feature in ArcMap.
2. User clicks UIButtonControl in ArcMap which opens stand alone VB app.
3. VB app startup form gets a value from the attribute table (let's say distance) in the selected feature(s) in ArcMap and puts that value in a field on the VB Form (let's say into a text box control named Text1).

Thanks for any help given.
