    Do...Loop While structure, write the code that repeatedly prompts

    the question is Using a Do...Loop While structure, write the code that repeatedly prompts the user using an InputBox for a number, and continues to prompt the user until a valid positive number is entered.
    Unfortunately it doesn't work properly, where did I go wrong?



    Public Class Form1

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
    Dim stringMagic As Double
    Do
    stringMagic = InputBox("Enter The Number", "Guess")
    If stringMagic <> 51 Or Nothing Then
    stringMagic = Val(stringMagic)
    MsgBox("Try Again!")
    End If
    Loop While stringMagic = InputBox("Enter The Number", "Guess")
    stringMagic = 51
    MsgBox("Happy Birthday!")

    End Sub
    End Class

    Your post does not comply with Rule 3 of our Forum RULES. Use code tags around code.

    Posting code between [CODE]Please [url=https://www.excelforum.com/login.php]Login or Register [/url] to view this content.[/CODE] tags makes your code much easier to read and copy for testing, it also maintains VBA formatting.

    Highlight your code and click the # icon at the top of your post window. More information about these and other tags can be found here

    Please use code tags around your code to fulfill the rules.
    I wrote about this in other post.

    And please don't open duplicated threads because it's impossible to follow one question in several threads.

    Clearer now?

    Drop the entitled attitude. You are no more special than the next person and in the scheme of personal reality no one cares about you or your problems.

    With that being said, the part you will want to focus on is what trigger the loop to end. Specifically this part in your scenario:

    Instead you will need to keep within the parameters of the problem and end the loop when the entry is a positive number. Look at using IsNumeric() and >0
