Int16::Parse Method (String)

Converts the string representation of a number to its 16-bit signed integer equivalent.

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

public:
static short Parse(
	String^ s
)

Parameters

s
Type: System::String

A string containing a number to convert.

Return Value

Type: System::Int16
A 16-bit signed integer equivalent to the number contained in s.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

s is nullptr.

FormatException

s is not in 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 sign.

digits

A sequence of digits ranging from 0 to 9.

The s parameter is interpreted using the NumberStyles::Integer style. In addition to the integer value's decimal digits, only leading and trailing spaces together with a leading sign are allowed. To explicitly define the style elements that can be present in s, use either the Int16::Parse(String, NumberStyles) or the Parse method.

The s parameter is parsed using the formatting information in a NumberFormatInfo object that is initialized for the current system culture. For more information, see CurrentInfo. To parse a string using the formatting information of some other culture, use the Int16::Parse(String, IFormatProvider) or the Int16::Parse(String, NumberStyles, IFormatProvider) method.

The following example demonstrates how to convert a string value into a 16-bit signed integer value using the Int16::Parse(String) method. The resulting integer value is then displayed to the console.

String^ value;
Int16 number;

value = " 12603 ";
try
{
   number = Int16::Parse(value);
   Console::WriteLine("Converted '{0}' to {1}.", value, number);
}
catch (FormatException ^e)
{
   Console::WriteLine("Unable to convert '{0}' to a 16-bit signed integer.", 
                      value);
}

value = " 16,054";
try
{
   number = Int16::Parse(value);
   Console::WriteLine("Converted '{0}' to {1}.", value, number);
}
catch (FormatException ^e)
{
   Console::WriteLine("Unable to convert '{0}' to a 16-bit signed integer.", 
                     value);
}

value = " -17264";
try
{
   number = Int16::Parse(value);
   Console::WriteLine("Converted '{0}' to {1}.", value, number);
}
catch (FormatException ^e)
{
   Console::WriteLine("Unable to convert '{0}' to a 16-bit signed integer.", 
                      value);
}
// The example displays the following output to the console: 
//       Converted ' 12603 ' to 12603. 
//       Unable to convert ' 16,054' to a 16-bit signed integer. 
//       Converted ' -17264' to -17264.
