Default 2 decimal places in textbox

I have got 2 textboxes. The summation of the numbers in the 2 textboxes should go in third textbox. I am doing it in the following way:
text3.text = cdbl(text1.text)+cdbl(text2.text).

What I want is the number in third text box should not exceed 2 decimal places. How to do it??? Help!!!!

text3.text = Round(cdbl(text1.text)+cdbl(text2.text),2)

Default Re: 2 decimal places in textbox

use the formatnumber method...

<pre>text3.text = formatnumber((<font color=blue>CDbl</font color=blue>(text1.text) + <font color=blue>CDbl</font color=blue>(text2.text)), 2)

This will make it so there are 2 numbers after the decimal place
