Converts the specified string representation of a number to an equivalent double-precision floating-point number, using the specified culture-specific formatting information.

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

public:
static double ToDouble(
	String^ value,
	IFormatProvider^ provider
)

Parameters

value
Type: System::String^

A string that contains the number to convert.

provider
Type: System::IFormatProvider^

An object that supplies culture-specific formatting information.

Return Value

Type: System::Double

A double-precision floating-point number that is equivalent to the number in value, or 0 (zero) if value is null.

Exception Condition
FormatException

value is not a number in a valid format.

OverflowException

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

The return value is the result of invoking the Double::Parse method on value.

provider is an IFormatProvider instance that obtains a NumberFormatInfo object. The NumberFormatInfo object provides culture-specific information about the format of value. If provider is null, the NumberFormatInfo for the current culture is used.

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

The following example converts string representations of Double values with the ToDouble method, using an IFormatProvider object.
