So here is what I am doing...  

1) It is a calculator and let's say that there are a total of 10 text boxes on the main form.
2) Based on your company type, selected by a check-box, a Panel pops up with certain form elements that perform a calculation and then send the computation back to the first form element (text box) as the first form element, depending on the type of business you are, is computed differently so will have a different number for the overall calculator based on the calculations for the selected business type.
3) Once the calculation for the text-box is completed and the first text-box is populated, the Panel will/should disappear so that can occur again if necessary for other text-boxes.

I would like to understand the process first along with maybe some concept way/ways to handle this (obviously different ways to do it).

The more specific the better and I'm DEFINITELY willing to share my simple code.

The issue is that I code in PHP, C, and many other languages but it's been a while since I developed and now I am, somehow, the defacto developer here at my company so I'm trying to learn C# VERY quickly... If anyone has any suggestions with that, TOO, that would be AMAZING!!!

Thank you SO MUCH!!!!!!!!

Based on my understanding of your description, I think you should follow these steps:

1) It is a calculator and let's say that there are a total of 10 text boxes on the main form.

Ok...

2) Based on your company type, selected by a check-box, a Panel pops up with certain form elements that perform a calculation and then send the computation back to the first form element (text box) as the first form element, depending on the type of business you are, is computed differently so will have a different number for the overall calculator based on the calculations for the selected business type.

To do this, add a HiddenField to your panel.  When the panel is opened, write the name of the textbox (to which the calculation value should be returned) into the HiddenField.  When the button on the panel submits the page:
1. Write the calculation value to the approriate textbox
Page.FindControlById[HiddenField1.Text].Text = intCalculation // where intCalculation is the appropriate value

3) Once the calculation for the text-box is completed and the first text-box is populated, the Panel will/should disappear so that can occur again if necessary for other text-boxes.

Panel1.Visible = false;
