SByte.Parse Method (String)

Converts the string representation of a number to its 8-bit signed integer equivalent.

This method is not CLS-compliant.   The CLS-compliant alternative is Parse(String).

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)] 
public static sbyte Parse (
	string s
)
/** @attribute CLSCompliantAttribute(false) */ 
public static SByte Parse (
	String s
)
CLSCompliantAttribute(false) 
public static function Parse (
	s : String
) : sbyte
Not applicable.

Parameters

s

A string representing a number to convert.

Return Value

An 8-bit signed integer equivalent to the number contained in the s parameter.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentException

s is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

FormatException

s does not consist of an optional sign followed by a sequence of digits (zero through nine).

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, and other items are as follows.

ws

An optional white space.

sign

An optional sign.

digits

A sequence of digits ranging from 0 to 9.

The s parameter is parsed using the formatting information in a NumberFormatInfo initialized for the current system culture. For more information, see NumberFormatInfo.CurrentInfo.

The following sample demonstrates the Parse method.

SByte val;
string input;

input = " 20";
val = SByte.Parse(input);
Console.WriteLine("{0} parsed as {1}", input, val);

input = " 20";
val = SByte.Parse(input, System.Globalization.NumberStyles.HexNumber);
Console.WriteLine("{0} parsed as {1}", input, val);

input = "-120";
val = SByte.Parse(input);
Console.WriteLine("{0} parsed as {1}", input, val);

SByte val;
String input;

input = " 20";
val = (SByte)SByte.Parse(input);
Console.WriteLine("{0} parsed as {1}", input, val);

input = " 20";
val = (SByte)SByte.Parse(input, 
    System.Globalization.NumberStyles.HexNumber);
Console.WriteLine("{0} parsed as {1}", input, val);

input = "-120";
val = (SByte)SByte.Parse(input);
Console.WriteLine("{0} parsed as {1}", input, val);

var val : SByte;
var input : String;

input = " 20";
val = SByte.Parse(input);
Console.WriteLine("{0} parsed as {1}", input, val);

input = " 20";
val = SByte.Parse(input, System.Globalization.NumberStyles.HexNumber);
Console.WriteLine("{0} parsed as {1}", input, val);

input = "-120";
val = SByte.Parse(input);
Console.WriteLine("{0} parsed as {1}", input, val);
