It's not nice to show the code which does not even compile. I mean, first line.
You need to copy and paste code from your project, or, even better, create a special code sample.

You need to stop wasting your time on UI development, urgently. You need to get some basic programming experience starting with most simple task, better be pure console application and master basic things, like variables, methods and parameter passing, static vs. instance, types and instances, and later "virtual", interfaces and other OOP.

Without that, what you try to do looks fantastic gibberish. The first line would not compile, because the type is not specified. The member should not be static and hardly can be public. Even if you need a public or internal member, it should rather be a property — public or internal field is a bad sign. And then, look what you are doing: get a string representation of some integer via ToString and then parse this string back to integer.

No questions can replace learning of the programming, especially if this is the very basics.
