    See post #4 for updated (VB10) version.

    This (VB6) version was based to work with the older forum software.

    VB10 version.
    HTML parsing updated to work with the new VBForums layout using vBulletin v4.2.0 (May 09, 2013).
    Note: Overall sloppy code structure, still uses some VB6 style codes, etc,..

    Code:
     v1.0.0.12 - Sept 20, 2014
    * Last and Final Update.
    * Slider form was still not always TopMost (hopefully fixed now).
    
    v1.0.0.10 - July 21, 2014
    * Slider Form now inherits from MS NoActivateWindow.vb.
    * Main form remembers last location and size.
    
    v1.0.0.9 - April 19, 2014
    * Now using HttpUtility.HtmlDecode to convert html symbols to text.
    * Update GetTextBetween function (text splitter).
    
    v1.0.0.8 - April, 08 2014
    * Fix: "Go To Last Post" option forced forum log out!
    
    v1.0.0.7 - April 08, 2014
    * Added "Go To Last Post" option. Opens thread to last post. (This is now the default).
    * Removed "last page" support from v1.0.0.5.
    
    v1.0.0.6 - Sept 05, 2013 
    * Minor updates

    Nice to see you care about vb features. Target 4.0 not client profile

    vb Code:
    1. Imports System.Web
    2.  
    3. Public Class Form1
    4.  
    5.     Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
    6.         Dim text As String = Me.TextBox1.Text
    7.         Dim decoded As String = HttpUtility.HtmlDecode(text)
    8.  
    9.         Me.TextBox1.Text = decoded
    10.     End Sub
    11.  
    12.     Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
    13.         Me.TextBox1.Text = "& " < > &apos % ı"
    14.     End Sub
    15. End Class
