C# System.Windows.Forms.TextBox does not contain a definition for text

Hi

In trying to gather the text in a text box I get the error
System.Windows.Forms.TextBox does not contain a definition for text

 string[] sTable = textBoxTableName.text;

I am new to C# so have no idea how to get around this

I agree with Andy, C# is case sensitive.

But also, I see that you have use []. Those are for arrays and you only have a single value. So your code should read like this:
string sTable = textBoxTableName.Text;
