a better handling.. just in case the value of text1 is non-numeric:

if isnumeric(text1.text) then
text2.text = fix(text1.text)
else
text2.text = "0" 'or default value
end if

Lol you guys are rediculous! It's so much simpler than that.

Dim number As Integer
number = Int(Text1.text)   'Visual basic automatically TRUNCATES when creating integers

'''Assume Text1.text = 12.99999
'''Then number = 12
'''Careful, because if Text1.text = -45.01827
'''Then number = -46
'''(negative numbers round down)

[If you're going straight back to a string then: Text2.text = Int( text1.text ) ]

>>number = Int(Text1.text)
yes, this will work IF and ONLY when Text1.text is a numeric value, else a Type Mismatch error will appear.

>>Lol you guys are rediculous!
Frankly, we are just volunteer to help here, however i don't expect to get that as a response here!

If isNumeric(Text1.text) then number = Int(Text1.text)

Didn't mean to offend you. I suppose that was innapropriate and appologize, I was simply explaining that there were more simple means.

easiest way would be to use the Left() function

ie txt1.text = Left(txt1.Text, InStr(txt1.Text, "."))
if necessary use the CStr() function to convert to string but i don't think you'll need to

An easier way would be
text1.text = "123.456"

text1.text = text1.text + 0

That will make text1.text = "123"

This works on my computer.

did you try it with "123.999"?
it appears that he always wants to round the number down

smokey's solution is effectively using the Int ( ) function, because it typecasts text1.text as an integer to match the type of "0" which is integer.

Ryan's solution has the same effect as the Fix() function, although it is not nearly as fast. String functions take much much longer to execute then a simple truncation function. A one time use case doesn't matter though. Only if this were code used alot in a loop or recursive call.
