I need to take string values from 2 textboxes (numbers in decimal form) then convert then to decimal so that calculations can be performed, such as adding them.

example: textbox1.text= "2.75"
               textbox2.text = "3.25"

               textbox3.text = "6" (2.75 + 3.25)

please provide C# code, thanks in advance.

you can use also the Parse() method:

decimal x = decimal.Parse(textbox1.Text)

but, if you want to validate the contents of the textbox for a valid number, use TryParse() instead:

decimal x;
bool valid = decimal.TryParse(textbox1.Text, out x);

This will avoid an exception, so you don't have to use try/catch.
