largest/smallest Array Value

I am using Visual basic.net 2005 with windows XP. I am writing a program that needs to find the largest/smallest array values. The user has to enter 10 numbers and then have the numbers displayed. After that the largest and smallest value are displayed.  This is what i know i need to put in but i am not exactly sure on how to get started.
          Dim numbers(50)  as Integer
          Dim count As Integer
          dim highest as integer
highest = numbers
for count  = 1 To (numbers.Length -1)
If numbers(count) > highest Then
highest = numbers(count)
end if
next count

I know to find the smallest is similar.
                                               thank you lisa

I replaced this line of code in my post

    Dim numbers() As Integer = {22, 12, 33, 74, 9, 18, 1, 99, 44, 2}

to what you had it;

    Dim numbers(50)  as Integer

And fill the array in with the values from the user. I did the above just to test the code.

Yes that works but what if you want to display the numbers the user enters in a listbox and can't you display the min and max results as a label.
To whom are you directing your question to Idle_Mind or myself?
I don't think it matters Fernando...all the info is there...she just needs to modify it.
Idle_Mind; I just am not sure whose code she is working from.
from both of you guys. Both solution work but i wanted to know how to display the numbers the user entered into a listbox and then display the min/max value in a label.
To add something to a ListBox:
 
    ListBox1.Items.Add("something")

To set a Label:

    Label1.Text = "set"

We can't do everything for you.  I feel badly enough as this looks like homework now that I think about it..
