Char.IsDigit Method (Char)

Indicates whether the specified Unicode character is categorized as a decimal digit.

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

public static bool IsDigit(
	char c
)

Parameters

c
Type: System.Char
A Unicode character.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if c is a decimal digit; otherwise, false.

This method determines if a Char is a radix-10 digit. This contrasts with the IsNumber method, which determines if a Char is of any numeric Unicode category. Numbers include characters such as fractions, subscripts, superscripts, Roman numerals, currency numerators, encircled numbers, and script-specific digits.

Valid digits are members of the UnicodeCategory.DecimalDigitNumber category.

The following example demonstrates IsDigit.


using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {
      char ch = '8';

      outputBlock.Text += Char.IsDigit(ch) + "\n";			// Output: "True"
      outputBlock.Text += Char.IsDigit("sample string", 7) + "\n";	// Output: "False"
   }
}
