The DHTML Page Designer does not add an Option Explicit statement to code by default. With this statement, Visual Basic requires you to declare variables before you use them.


To add Option Explicit to your DHTML Page Designer pages:

  1. Right-click on DHTML page in the Visual Basic Project window.
  2. Select View Code from the pop-up menu.
  3. Insert the text "Option Explicit" as the very first line.
  4. Repeat this process for all DHTML pages in the project and every time you create a new DHTML page.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.
