    Re: Display a variable

    textbox1.Text = ten.ToString();
    The Text property of a TextBox is of type string, but you are trying to assign an int to it. The "ToString()" method of an object returns a string representation, so you can assign that to the Text property. It would probably be a good idea for you to go through some beginner C# tutorials to get the basic syntax and programming concepts down.

    Also look at the String.Format(...) method, as I suspect sometimes you will want to display many variables at once:
    textbox1.Text = String.Format("{0}", ten); 
    // output "10"
    textbox1.Text = String.Format("The number is {0}", ten); 
    // output "The number is 10"
    textbox1.Text = String.Format("My IQ is {0} and this is the end of the paragraph{1}{1}", ten * 15, Environment.NewLine); 
    // output "My IQ is 150 and this is the end of the paragraph" followed by 2 new lines.
    hope that helps. (I took care not to use 10 in the last statement
    Ohhhhh.... Old McDonald was dyslexic, E O I O EEEEEEEEEE.......
