I hope I am not exceeding my limit of questions here. I appreciate the help so much. This will be my last question tonight I promise.Can somebody tell me where I went wrong on this. I just want to take the input from the textbox and display it with the paint method when the user clicks the button.

I edited your code to include the UBB Code Tags to make your code easier to read.

You set the text field value to a string at compile time. It's value at that time was an empty string. Move getting the value to your action performed method.
There are no limits to questions.

Thanks Paul, I remember now that strings are immutable so the way I had it couldnt possibly work.
