Hello,
can someone please advise what I'm doing wrong. I have try many solutions, but just cannot get out from error like:
"Conversion from type 'ListItem' to type 'String' is not valid", or
Conversion from type 'ListItem' to type 'Double' is not valid, or
Conversion from type 'ListItem' to type 'Integer' is not valid, etc

Dim result As Double = Math.Round((TextBoxA.Text + TextBoxB.Text, 1)
        MsgBox(result)
        Dim Pcs As String = result * TextBoxC.Text
        MsgBox(Pcs)
        ListBox1.Items.Add(Pcs)
        Dim sum As Double
        For Each item As String In ListBox1.Items
            sum += Double.Parse(item)
        Next

Thanks in advance for hlep!

better yet with TryParse to avoid exception:
Dim result As Double = Math.Round((TextBoxA.Text + TextBoxB.Text, 1)
        MsgBox(result)
        Dim Pcs As String = result * TextBoxC.Text
        MsgBox(Pcs)
        ListBox1.Items.Add(Pcs)
        Dim sum As Double
        Dim number As Double
        For Each item As Object In ListBox1.Items
            if (Double.TryParse(item.ToString(), number)) then
                sum += number
        else
                'parsing failed
        end if
        Next
