Hello there,
I am new to Visual Basic and am using Visual Basic 6.
I was wondering how to add two text box.
I have tried Text3.Text = Text1.Text + Text2.Text
but that did not work, it just joined the values.

Like if text1.text was equal to 1 and text2.text was equal to 2 it would give text3.text the value of 12.

Please help me out!!!

text boxes are text by default
to perform math functions you need to change the text to integer or ...

text3.text = cint(text1. t) + cint(text2.text)
