Gives below error
"The name 'Int' does not exist in the current context"
because .net compiler searches method Int(string data).
If it does not exist then gives error else calls implemented method.

It should be CInt(txtTEst.Text), which converts the text in the textbox to an integer.

Remember to check the textbox's text before converting, otherwise it will throw an error.
Like this:

Dim iValue as Integer
If IsNumeric(txtTEst.Text) then
    iValue = CInt(txtTEst.Text)
End If

Then use CDbl to convert to double, or CSng to convert to single, or CDec to convert to decimal. All of them will retain the decimal.
