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

public:
static bool IsDigit(
	String^ s,
	int index
)

Parameters

s
Type: System::String^

A string.

index
Type: System::Int32

The position of the character to evaluate in s.

Return Value

This method determines whether a Char is a radix-10 digit. This contrasts with IsNumber, which determines whether 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.

Character positions in a string are indexed starting from zero.

Valid digits are members of the UnicodeCategory::DecimalDigitNumber category.

The following code example demonstrates IsDigit.

using namespace System;
int main()
{
   char ch = '8';
   Console::WriteLine( Char::IsDigit( ch ) ); // Output: "True"
   Console::WriteLine( Char::IsDigit(  "sample string", 7 ) ); // Output: "False"
}
