I want my VB program (a text editor) to be able to intercept filenames when the file''s opening is associated with your program. You know if you make your program be associated with a filename so when you double click it, it opens in your program.. Well we all know in C/C++ you can get that filename inside the argv array.. But is there anyway to get this in Visual Basic?

Private Sub Form_Load()
MsgBox Command
End Sub

Command will hold the string of the text passed along when executing.
