Convert.ToUInt32 Method (String)

Converts the specified string representation of a number to an equivalent 32-bit unsigned integer.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static uint ToUInt32(
	string value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.String

A string that contains the number to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt32
A 32-bit unsigned integer that is equivalent to the number in value, or 0 (zero) if value is null.

ExceptionCondition
FormatException

value does not consist of an optional sign followed by a sequence of digits (0 through 9).

OverflowException

value represents a number that is less than UInt32.MinValue or greater than UInt32.MaxValue.

Using the ToUInt32(String) method is equivalent to passing value to the UInt32.Parse(String) method. value is interpreted by using the formatting conventions of the current thread culture.

If you prefer not to handle an exception if the conversion fails, you can call the UInt32.TryParse method instead. It returns a Boolean value that indicates whether the conversion succeeded or failed.

The following example interprets the elements in a string array as numeric strings and attempts to convert them to unsigned integers.

string[] values = { "One", "1.34e28", "-26.87", "-18", "-6.00",
                    " 0", "137", "1601.9", Int32.MaxValue.ToString() };
uint result;

foreach (string value in values)
{
   try {
      result = Convert.ToUInt32(value);
      Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value '{1}' to the {2} value {3}.",
                        value.GetType().Name, value, 
                        result.GetType().Name, result);
   }
   catch (OverflowException) {
      Console.WriteLine("The {0} value '{1}' is outside the range of the UInt32 type.",
                        value.GetType().Name, value);
   }   
   catch (FormatException) {
      Console.WriteLine("The {0} value '{1}' is not in a recognizable format.",
                        value.GetType().Name, value);
   }   
}                                 
// The example displays the following output: 
//    The String value 'One' is not in a recognizable format. 
//    The String value '1.34e28' is not in a recognizable format. 
//    The String value '-26.87' is not in a recognizable format. 
//    The String value '-18' is outside the range of the UInt32 type. 
//    The String value '-6.00' is not in a recognizable format. 
//    Converted the String value ' 0' to the UInt32 value 0. 
//    Converted the String value '137' to the UInt32 value 137. 
//    The String value '1601.9' is not in a recognizable format. 
//    Converted the String value '2147483647' to the UInt32 value 2147483647.
