I need to make it so when i click the Do IT botton the variables ive shown take the values of the text control box ive selected, and after an hour trolling the internet and trying different lines of code i still have no clue. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks guys. (ive used comments for clarity)

This is as far as i got, please only test this programme on a "trial file" and enter the extension as .*jpg for example, or .*doc and only test it on copy files as to not dmage your own (the programme overwrites all names of that extension in a file and appends them with numbers)
