Simple math problem?

Hello friends
I need to implement the following
In a "Tex Box" income numbers, pressing the button, each of these numbers (separately) is loaded into an ARRAY.
What I do is the following
If I enter the following number "123456"
Set value at 0 to mid (TextBox.Text, 0.1)
Set value at 1 to mid (TextBox.Text, 1.1)
Set value at 2 to mid (TextBox.Text, 2.1)
Set value at March to mid (TextBox.Text, 3.1)

Keep the number of characters in a variable "Char"

system -> Set char to len (TextBox.Text)

And then be added together and divided by the total number of characters, where I apply the following
Text2 -> Set Text -> "Sum:" & (Array.At (0) + Array.At (1) Array.At (2) + Array.At (3) + Array.At (4)) / char

But I manage to find the result as it always shows me = 1

This is te .CAPX

In that I'm wrong?

Thank You

Have you tried making sure that the values you write to the array are ints?

i.e.

int(mid(TextBox.Text,0,1))

Seems to then work as expected.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Works perfect.
I think I need to learn further programming.
The " LOOPS " are something new for me, the "ARRAY " bring me a headache .
