    you need to add the count of the array elements. or ReDim it. This is visual; basic though and not php.

    Code:
    Private MyStates(0 to 49) As String
    MyStates(0) = "Kansas"
    Or

    Code:
    Private MyStates() As String
    
    ReDim MyStates(0 to 49) As String
    
    MyStates(0) = "Kansas"
    As for the class just use a function to select 3 randoms and have it except the actual capital as a param so it can loop through and find it in the array.
