i need help converting a string array into an integer array. i'm reading in my values that are forming the array from a text file (test.txt).

And where exactly is issue?

What is the problem? For each itme of the array of strings use Int32.Parse[^] (or TryParse[^]) method to convert the string into a number and add the obtained number to the integer array.
You may also skip the 'fill-the-array-of-strings' step and produce directly the array of integers.
This is correct, a 5.
However, there is a library generic method to do in in one line of code. Please see my answer.

Thank you.
Essentially, you should create an array of the target type and convert it element by element, in a loop. However, there is a convenient universal generic method in .NET FCL, to do it in one line of code:[^].

Nice, my 5.
Thank you, Carlo.
Try This,

Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Dim Readtxt As String = "1,2,3,4,5"
        Dim arrTxt() As String = Split(Readtxt, ",")
        Dim arrLength As Integer = arrTxt.Length
        Dim arrNumber(arrLength - 1) As Integer
        For i As Integer = 0 To arrLength - 1
            arrNumber(i) = Integer.Parse(arrTxt(i))
    End Sub
