Converts the string representation of a number to its 32-bit signed integer equivalent.

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

public static int Parse(
	string s
)
public:
static int Parse(
	String^ s
)
static member Parse : 
        s:string -> int
Public Shared Function Parse (
	s As String
) As Integer

Parameters

s
Type:

A string containing a number to convert.

Return Value

Type:

A 32-bit signed integer equivalent to the number contained in s.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

s is null.

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]

Items 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 NumberStylesInteger style. In addition to 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 Int32Parse or the Int32Parse method.

The s parameter is parsed using the formatting information in a NumberFormatInfo object initialized for the current system culture. For more information, see . To parse a string using the formatting information of some other culture, use the Int32Parse method.

The following example demonstrates how to convert a string value into a 32-bit signed integer value using the Int32Parse method. The resulting integer value is then displayed to the console.
