Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This requires a static (not shared) local variable in your click method. For example:
<pre>Static SecondUse As Boolean = False</pre>
and in your code
<pre>If Not SecondUse Then
‘firstime stuff
SecondUse = True
‘etc …</pre>

    The easiest way to do that would be to use a counter - each time the button is pressed, increment the counter and then check if it is the first time or not.
