Q: HOW DO YOU CODE -- WITHOUT USING ARRAYS OR SPLIT FUNCTION, Basic Computer Science

Q: HOW DO YOU CODE -- WITHOUT USING ARRAYS OR SPLIT FUNCTIONS -- TO SEPARATE COMMA SEPARATE NUMBER VALUES AND THEN SUM TO TOTAL? I.E., USING SUBSTRING AND INDEXOF.

I''ve been trying to get this to work but am having problems with the loops and counters. Basically -- NOT using arrays or split functions -- I need to write a function that takes one string made of numbers separated by comma and then have the function return the total of all the separate numbers (number of entered comma separated values is fungible depending on how many values the user enters into the textbox). E.g., textbox1 string is: 10,11,12 --> Total =33. Or, 1,33,121,3,55 ---> Total = 213.

Below is my code so far. Thanks in advance!

Public Class Form1


Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
Dim s, showVal As String
Dim Total, x, length As Integer

Dim comma1Position As Integer ''this is used to get the index of the first comma position
Dim oldcomma1Position As Integer ''dummy register variable

Dim commaCount As Integer = 0

s = TextBox1.Text
length = s.Length
x = 0
comma1Position = 0
oldcomma1Position = 0
commaCount = 0
Dim number As String
Total = 0

Do While x <> -1
oldcomma1Position = comma1Position
x = s.IndexOf(",")
comma1Position = s.IndexOf(",", (oldcomma1Position + 1))
number = s.Substring(oldcomma1Position, x)
Total = Total + CInt(number)

commaCount = commaCount + 1


Loop
showVal = " The Sum Total of the Comma Separated Values You Entered Is: " & Total

MessageBox.Show(showVal)
