I know that this is an easy question but I just am drawing a blank right now so I have come to you...
I want to calculate many dates from a date picked from a DateTimePicker. The problem is I want it to only make the fisrt calculation off of the DTP.

See Code

Then I want another txtbox to display to show the result of 10 more months from the date in txtE3. The thing is that the value of the text box is a string and you can not use the AddMonth to it. I though that i could just keep reusing _date with the next value but I was doing something wrong. To tired right now i guess..

Thanks

Dim _Date as Date
 

_date = dtpstart.Value.Date

txtE2.Text = _date.AddMonths(6)

txtE3.Text = (the result from above then add 10 months)

OR you can do this.........

Private Sub dtpstart_ValueChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles dtpstart.ValueChanged
        Me.TextBox2.Text = dtpstart.Value.Date.AddMonths(6)
        Me.TextBox3.Text = CType(TextBox2.Text, Date).AddMonths(10)
    End Sub

TextBox1.Text = DateAdd(DateInterval.Month, 10, Now)
