Adding Hex Values in Visual Basic

Hello,
     I'm looking to add some Hex values in Visual Basic 2005, for example:

0x40+0x08+0x04+0x02 = 0x4E

I need to have 0x4E as a string in the end so I can include it in a label.

But I have not been able to figure out how to do this. I'm sure it's something simple, but I'm lost... Any help would be appreciated, much thanks...

-Matt

            IntResult += Integer.Parse(HexArray(i).Substring(2), Globalization.NumberStyles.HexNumber)
        Next
        MsgBox(String.Format("Result is {0}", IntResult))

You can do this

dim tot as long = 0x40+0x08+0x04+0x02
dim str as String =tot.ToString("X")

str will contain the hex representation of tot

Good point about formatting as hex at the end pkumarra... I missed that in the original question

MsgBox(String.Format("Result is 0x{0:X}", IntResult))

>dim tot as long = 0x40+0x08+0x04+0x02

The idea is okay if the hex isn't contained in string, but in Visual Basic, hex digits are represented with &H before them:

Dim Tot As Long = &H40 + &H8 + &H4 + &H2
