@ shakil0304003: InputBox is a VB function that works sort of like a MessageBox, only that you get a textbox where you can enter something and retrieve it when the user clicks ok.

In my opinion, InputBox is a stupid function because you have no way of restricting the user input (you can validate it afterwards, but the user can write anything he wants in the box). Plus: It looks like sh*t...

Much better to simply do a form yourself with a label, a textbox and ok/cancel buttons. That way you can also design the box to match the look and fell of the rest of your application. It will only require a few more lines of code...

If you absolutely insist on using the InputBox function, I'm sure it still exists somewhere in the Microsoft.VisualBasic namespace.

InputBox is totally removed from C# and actually it doesnt need that. Rather you can create it of your own if you like. Just create a form and add a textbox and use it as an InputBox.
