if number <= minnumber or number >= maxinumber then messagebox.show("number is out of range.number must be between the minimum and the maximum number") exit sub end if

Please copy and paste this code as I made a lot of changes that might be over-looked.

LowerBound <= Value <= UpperBound

Now you can see there are two sub expressions

1. (LowerBound <= Value) <= UpperBound

2. LowerBound <= (Value <= UpperBound)

If (LowerBound <= Value) AndAlso (Value<=UpperBound) Then ' Is within bounds Else ' Is not within bounds End If {/code] If you just want to see if the value is outside the bounds, enclose both expression inside of a not. [code] If Not ( (LowerBound <= Value) AndAlso (Value<=UpperBound) ) Then ' Not with in bounds Else ' Is within bounds End If

Instead I create a Util class in which you can define the operation. Then no matter how you write the implementation, the if statement is always the same. And if you find a better way to do it, you can easily update it later on.

So then the result would be:

If MyUtil.InRange(num, min, max) Then ''do stuff

as one may notice in this class... the exact code you're expecting is like the 3rd function.

**Edit:**lordofduct you've made an fundamental error in code you've shown. In .net arrays are Zero-Index based.

Here is how the compiler was interpreting it:

if (((number >= minnumber) and number) <= maxnumber) then messagebox.show("number is out of range.number must be between the minimum and the maximum number") exit sub end if

Result:

(number >= minnumber) = True ((number >= minnumber) And number) = 5 (((number >= minnumber) And number) <= maxnumber) = 5

Essentially it reads it as:

If 5 then

When doing conditional operations, it will implicitly convert integers to booleans and interpret everything that is non-zero as true. If you turn Option Strict on then it will not let you run the application with the OP code because it no longer allows implicit conversions.

The whole problem could have been fixed using:

if (number >= minnumber) and (number <= maxnumber) then messagebox.show("number is out of range.number must be between the minimum and the maximum number") exit sub end if
