i have the code to add text to the message body on sending part, but for some reason when i add the textbox1.value it says it is "empty"

i have attached the code below
Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)

Dim msg As Outlook.MailItem
Dim AddMsg As String

AddMsg = "----- Blackberry View -----"

Set msg = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem)
msg.Body = AddMsg
msg.Body = "Subject: " & TextBox1.Value
msg.Body = "Date: " & TextBox2.Value
msg.Body = "Time: " & TextBox3.Value
