AnswerBox 3 Interactive
A Picture speaks more than a thousand words! Suddenly you realize during development that code you wrote offers much more facilities than you intended to achieve. A small change in the class opens all (reasonable) varieties. Any small GUI class can be used instead of textbox. Have fun! Update Feb 2014: The show(……) method has been changed to showAnswerBox(……). It has been made much simpler to add interactive controls to the Answerbox which also can receive the focus now. The focus index is public and can be set after the controls are added as well. Note: Methods of adding controls are downwards compatible.

This code was written by VB2010 express version, with socket class to commit TELNET client function. By parsing this code, you would learn, how socket class worked at client side, how to send the data to the host, and read the host data, and also how to make yourself TELNET Client. I did not put so much error handling code in the program. I debug the code at winxp64 & win7 platform with remote host suse64 & redhat64 platform.
