Variable type issue

Hey folks,

I have a comboBox which is populated by an array of strings.

I then have a textArea which is automatically filled with a number from another array depending on what value is selected from the comboBox.

I also have a simple maths method that produces a random number.

Where the problem lies is when I try to do any arithmetic operations to the text in the textArea, I receive an error about incompatible variable types: found String, requires int.

Yet the value in the textArea IS an int.

Any ideas please ?
