Hello again experts I have a new problem

I have 3 textbox fields 1 contains a name the other two have numerical values that I have converted into a percentage to be displayed in a text box.

my problem is this I don't know how to display the text with the answer in the middle of the text box!

tbresult needs to say = 'The' + tbname.text + 'won' + tbresult.Text = FormatNumber(((a / (a + b) * 100)), 3).ToString + of thier games so far this year.

Thanx in advance

Below is my code



Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

        Dim a, b As Integer

        a = tbwon.Text
        b = tblost.Text
        tbresult.Text = FormatNumber(((a / (a + b) * 100)), 3).ToString



    End Sub

change your last line to

tbresult = "The " & tbname.text.tostring & " won " & FormatNumber(((a / (a + b) * 100)), 3).ToString & " of their games so far this year."

        Dim a, b As Integer

        a = tbwon.Text
        b = tblost.Text
    tbresult = "The " & tbname.text.tostring & " won " & FormatNumber(((a / (a + b) * 100)), 3).ToString & " of their games so far this year."

Gennerates the error Value of type 'String' cannot be converted to 'System.Windows.Forms.TextBox'.

Why I wonder.

Change nepaulz answer to read:
tbresult.Text = "The " & tbname.text.tostring & " won " & FormatNumber(((a / (a + b) * 100)), 3).ToString & " of their games so far this year."
