Dim agre1, agre2, agre3 As Double
agre1 = Form1.TextBox11.Text
agre2 = Me.TextBox11.Text
agre3 = ((agre1 + agre2) / 2)
TextBox12.Text = agre3

The Val Method also works. Also when you display the result back into TextBox12.Text you'll need to use agre3.ToString().

@deciptikon - quick follow-up question from a dinosaur. What is the difference between CDbl() and Convert.ToDouble(). Is the former being deprecated? Is there a reason why I should prefer one over the other?

What is the difference between CDbl() and Convert.ToDouble().

CDbl() is a little smarter by default in that it takes different numbering styles into consideration. You can get a similar effect with Double.Parse() and a formatter of NumberStyles.Any, with the understanding that the extra work has a runtime cost compared to Convert.ToDouble(), where the default behavior uses Double.Parse() with the less thorough NumberStyles.Float and NumberStyles.AllowThousands (if I recall correctly, of course. AllowThousands may not be default).

Ultimately it comes down to whether you want support for currency formatting, slightly more concise syntax, and don't mind depending on the Microsoft.VisualBasic assembly.

Use this coding

Dim agre1, agre2, agre3 As Double
agre1 = val(Form1.TextBox11.Text)
agre2 = val(TextBox11.Text)
agre3 = ((agre1 + agre2) / 2)
TextBox12.Text = agre3

Implicit conversion are generally not a good idea. Even though Option Strict might be off it's generally a good idea to code like it is on, or to turn it on, and make all your conversion explicit(i.e. TextBox12.Text = agre3.ToString). It can save some confusion down the road.
