A TextBox displays only one item which is a string. You set the value by

TextBox1.Text = "some string value"

Or you can add to the existing text by

TextBox1.AppendText("more text")

A ListBox, however, displays a collection of items and you have to add items to that collection as in

ListBox1.Items.Add("some string value")
ListBox1.Items.Add("another string value")

so what you want is

ListBox1.Items.Add("No speed entered:")
