How To Display Values In a Textbox In Visual Basic


Text boxes in a user interface are often used to get information from the user, but they can also be used to display values dynamically. The "TextBox.Text" property can be used in Visual Basic to add values to a text box control. The same property can be used to retrieve the content in a text box and use it in your program. It's best to display information through labels, but you can use a text box as well.

Things You'll Need

  • Microsoft Visual Basic Express
  • Launch Microsoft Visual Basic Express, click "New Project..." from the left pane of your computer screen and select "Windows Forms Application." Click "OK."

  • Double-click "TextBox" from the "Toolbox" pane to add a new text box control to the Form. Double-click "Button" to add a new button.

  • Double-click "Button1" to create a click event procedure for the button. Inside the click event add the following VB code to display values 1 through 10 divided by commas in the text box control:

        Dim myValues(10) As Integer

    Dim vCntr As Integer

    Me.TextBox1.Text = vCntr

    For vCntr = 1 To 10

    Me.TextBox1.Text = Me.TextBox1.Text & "," & vCntr


  • Press "F5" and click "Button1" to display the values in the text box.
