Simple beginner exercise:
There's an input box where you put in your name seperated by spaces, then get the first letter from the first and last name and out put it to a label
I.e (Joe Bob) = JB
You can try using the SubString and Split Methods.
Private Sub Button2_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
Dim myInitials As String
Dim myName As String = "Joe Bob"
myInitials = myName.Substring(0, 1) & myName.Split(" ")(1).Substring(0, 1)
