Combo box problem

Hi Experts, I have populated the combobox (cbo1) with values (0-9). I have a textbox (txtValue) having a value of 5. I want to find out the location of the text value with respect to the combo box.

How could I achieve this in VB.NET?

TIA.

Private Sub button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles button1.Click
        MessageBox.Show("Position is "  + GetIndex(txtValue.Text))
End Sub

Private Function GetIndex(ByVal text As String) As Int32
        Dim i As Int32
        If cbo1.Items.Contains(txtValue.Text) Then
            For i = 0 To cbo1.Items.Count-1
                If text = cbo1.Items.Item(i) Then
                    Return i
                End If
            Next
        End If
End Function
