You can use the Mod function to determine if a number is even like this:

    Private Function isEven(ByVal number As Integer) As Boolean
        Return (number Mod 2) = 0
    End Function

you can write your own, using the MOD operator

    Private Function OddEven(ByVal MyNumber As Integer) As String

        If MyNumber Mod 2 = 0 Then
             Return "Even"
             Return "Odd"
     End If
End Function

which you could use like this ( add a TextBox, Label and Button to a Form):

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Label1.Text = " Is " & OddEven(TextBox1.Text)
    End Sub
