Byte.Parse Method (String, IFormatProvider)

 

Converts the string representation of a number in a specified culture-specific format to its Byte equivalent.

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

static member Parse : 
        s:string *
        provider:IFormatProvider -> byte

Parameters

s
Type: System.String

A string that contains a number to convert. The string is interpreted using the Integer style.

provider
Type: System.IFormatProvider

An object that supplies culture-specific parsing information about s. If provider is null, the thread current culture is used.

Return Value

Type: System.Byte

A byte value that is equivalent to the number contained in s.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

s is null.

FormatException

s is not of 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 positive sign.

digits

A sequence of digits ranging from 0 to 9.

The s parameter is interpreted using the Integer style. In addition to the byte value's decimal digits, only leading and trailing spaces together with a leading sign are allowed. (If the sign is present, it must be a positive sign or the method throws an OverflowException.) To explicitly define the style elements together with the culture-specific formatting information that can be present in s, use the Byte.Parse(String, NumberStyles, IFormatProvider) method.

The s parameter is parsed using the formatting information in a NumberFormatInfo object supplied by provider. The provider parameter is an IFormatProvider implementation such as a NumberFormatInfo or CultureInfo object. The provider parameter supplies culture-specific information used in parsing. If provider is null, the thread current culture is used.

The following example parses string representations of Byte values with the Parse method.
