Byte.Parse Method (String, IFormatProvider)

Converts the string representation of a number in a specified culture-specific format to its Byte equivalent.

Namespace: System
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public static byte Parse (
	string s,
	IFormatProvider provider
)
public static byte Parse (
	String s, 
	IFormatProvider provider
)
public static function Parse (
	s : String, 
	provider : IFormatProvider
) : byte
Not applicable.

Parameters

s

A string containing a number to convert. The string is interpreted using the Integer style.

provider

An IFormatProvider that supplies culture-specific parsing information about s. If provider is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the thread current culture is used.

Return Value

The Byte value equivalent to the number contained in s.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

s is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

FormatException

s is not of the correct format.

OverflowException

s represents a number less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

The s parameter contains a number of the form:

[ws][sign]digits[ws]

Elements in square brackets ([ and ]) are optional. The following table describes each element.

Element

Description

ws

Optional white space.

sign

An optional positive sign.

digits

A sequence of digits ranging from 0 to 9.

The s parameter is interpreted using the Integer style. In addition to the byte value's decimal digits, only leading and trailing spaces together with a leading sign are allowed. (If the sign is present, it must be a positive sign 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 Byte.Parse(String,NumberStyles,IFormatProvider) method.

The s parameter is parsed using the formatting information in a NumberFormatInfo object supplied by provider. The provider parameter is an IFormatProvider implementation such as a NumberFormatInfo or CultureInfo object. The provider parameter supplies culture-specific information used in parsing. If provider is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the thread current culture is used.

The following example parses string representations of Byte values with the Parse method.
