Converts the specified string representation of a number to an equivalent 16-bit signed integer.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
- Type: System..::..String
A string that contains the number to convert.
Return ValueType: System..::..Int16
A 16-bit signed integer that is equivalent to the number in value, or 0 (zero) if value is nullNothingnullptrunita null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
Using the method is equivalent to passing value to the Int16..::..Parse(String) method. value is interpreted by using the formatting conventions of the current thread culture.
If you prefer not to handle an exception if the conversion fails, you can call the method instead. It returns a Boolean value that indicates whether the conversion succeeded or failed.
