I've declared the variable "singleEntry" below as a TextBox. Not sure I've I should have declared the variable type as String. None the less, I want to display the data you enter in a Textbox to a MessageBox in C#?
Most grateful,
WD
TextBox singleEntry = textBoxSingle.Text;

notice TextBox is a control class, not a string, if you want to use the string inside the control, you have to use the .Text property
