    Randomly....
    Read the facts into an array. Pick a random number n from 0 to Array.UpperBound.
    Display ArrayItem(n) in the TextBox.

    ok, ive put a random number generator in there, how can i convert it so instead of showing up numbers it shows up a line from the txt file? (each fact is on a line).


    also, how can i do my birthday generator? I want to be able to do it from two drop down boxes to select day and month to display a birthday in a text box from a txt file.

    You need to read the text into the array, not the numbers. Then create one random number. Display arrayitem(number) to show the randomly selected text.

    There are several ways to do the birthday part. But I'm wondering, if you should use a DatePicker control rather than ComboBoxes.
