UInt32.Parse Method (String, IFormatProvider)
Updated: May 2010
Converts the string representation of a number in a specified culture-specific format to its 32-bit unsigned integer equivalent.
This API is not CLS-compliant. The CLS-compliant alternative is Parse(String). Namespace: System
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)] public static uint Parse( string s, IFormatProvider provider )
- Type: System.String
A string that represents the number to convert.
- Type: System.IFormatProvider
An object that supplies culture-specific formatting information about s.
Return ValueType: System.UInt32
A 32-bit unsigned integer equivalent to the number specified in s.
This overload of the method is typically used to convert text that can be formatted in a variety of ways to a UInt32 value. For example, it can be used to convert the text entered by a user into a text box to a numeric value.
The s parameter contains a number of the form:
Items in square brackets ([ and ]) are optional. The following table describes each element.
Optional white space.
An optional sign, or a negative sign if s represents the value zero.
A sequence of digits ranging from 0 to 9.
The s parameter is interpreted using the NumberStyles.Integer style. In addition to the unsigned integer value's decimal digits, only leading and trailing spaces along with a leading sign is allowed. (If the negative sign is present, s must represent a value of zero, or the method throws an OverflowException.) To explicitly define the style elements together with the culture-specific formatting information that can be present in s, use the Parse(String, NumberStyles, IFormatProvider) method.
The provider parameter is an IFormatProvider implementation whose GetFormat method returns a NumberFormatInfo object that provides culture-specific information about the format of s. There are three ways to use the provider parameter to supply custom formatting information to the parse operation:
If provider is null, the NumberFormatInfo for the current culture is used.
