          "generates the following output." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf

      ' Create a Decimal object and get its type code.
      Dim aDecimal As Decimal = New Decimal(1.0)
      Dim typCode As TypeCode = aDecimal.GetTypeCode()

      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format("Type Code:      ""{0}""", typCode) & vbCrLf
      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format("Numeric value:  {0}", CInt(typCode)) & vbCrLf
