How do I post a status?

I really wish this had a tutorial or something... how can I just simply post a status?

To update your status you would use APi.Stream.Publish  function.  I'm not sure the nature of you app but if you are going to be updating other users status than make sure you use the extended_permissions prompt.  Check out this site:

I hope that was what you were looking for.

I am creating a desktop application in Visual Basic that simply posts the user's status. That is it. But, it's difficult to figure out that much with the SDK...

 So are you creating an application that allows a user to update their status or an application that will get the status of a user?

It allows the user to update their status. It's kinda like TweetDeck, except it's just for statuses.
