    I've got a EditText box set up for numbers only, into which a height number is typed.
    When I try read the content, I imagine it will be casted automatically.
    However, I get a crash on the second line below, 'Invalid Double'.
    Code:
    Dim height as int
    height = heightText.Text
    What is the correct way do this, use a stringToInt function?

    Oops, ignore this question. heightText had not had a value typed in, and the initial string from the designer contained a non-numeric string.

    Retract, retract! The inital string did no seem to be the problem after all.

    Still have problems. Log is below:

    and a correction, I'm actually trying to convert to float, not int:
    Code:
    Dim height as Float
    height = heightText.Text

    An Empty String cannot be parsed to a Double, Int, Long, Float

    You should put a correct default value in your EditText view.
