You must convert the textual values to a numeric type in order to perform arithmetic on them. I typically suggest using one of the TryParse methods for this because you get validation that the values actually represent numbers before trying to work arithmetic against them. For example:

decimal decTotal = 0;
decimal decTop = 0;

if (decimal.TryParse(txtTotal.Text, out decTotal) &&
    decimal.TryParse(txtTop.Text, out decTop))
{
    txtTotal.Text = (decTotal + decTop).ToString();
}
else
{
    MessageBox.Show("Invalid value(s)!");
}

Pass a "format string" to the ToString call:

...

txtTotal.Text = (decTotal + decTop).ToString("#,##0.00");

...

Open in new window


The #'s mean an optional field in the output; the 0's mean a mandatory digit in the output (i.e. if there's no valid digit to fill that position in the original value, then a zero is output for that position). If your sum were .2, then you would see 0.20 in the output. If the sum were 2000, then you would see 2,000.00 in the output.
