    Copy textbox data to a string

    // I have a textBox and would like to copy its contents
    // into a string called myColor

    string myColor= "BLUE"; // OK works as expected
    textBoxColor->Text = "BLUE"; // OK The textbox accepts a string literal
    // But ... none of the following seems to work - all have errors
    myColor = textBoxColor->Text;
    myColor = textBoxColor.Text;
    myColor = std::string( textBoxColor->Text);
    myColor = System::String(textBoxColor->Text);
    myColor = Convert.ToString(textBoxColor->Text);
    myColor = System::Convert::ToString(textBoxColor->Text);
    myColor = String::Parse(textBoxColor->Text);
    myColor = textBoxColor->Text;
    // ------------ Suggestions please

    I'd suggest you to post your question to the appropriate forum.
    Your code has nothing to with the Visual C++ Programming!
