Int16.Parse Method (String, NumberStyles, IFormatProvider)
Converts the string representation of a number in a specified style and culture-specific format to its 16-bit signed integer equivalent.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
static member Parse : s:string * style:NumberStyles * provider:IFormatProvider -> int16
A string containing a number to convert.
A bitwise combination of enumeration values that indicates the style elements that can be present in s. A typical value to specify is NumberStyles.Integer.
Return ValueType: System.Int16
A 16-bit signed integer equivalent to the number specified in s.
s is null.
s is not in a format compliant with style.
The style parameter defines the style elements (such as white space or the positive sign) that are allowed in the s parameter for the parse operation to succeed. It must be a combination of bit flags from the NumberStyles enumeration. Depending on the value of style, the s parameter may include the following elements:
Or, if style includes AllowHexSpecifier:
Elements in square brackets ([ and ]) are optional. The following table describes each element.
Optional white space. White space can appear at the beginning of s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowLeadingWhite flag, or at the end of s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowTrailingWhite flag.
A culture-specific currency symbol. Its position in the string is defined by the NumberFormatInfo.CurrencyPositivePattern and NumberFormatInfo.CurrencyNegativePattern property of the current culture. The current culture's currency symbol can appear in s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowCurrencySymbol flag.
An optional sign. The sign can appear at the beginning of s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowLeadingSign flag, and it can appear at the end of s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowTrailingSign flag. Parentheses can be used in s to indicate a negative value if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowParentheses flag.
A sequence of digits from 0 through 9.
A culture-specific thousands separator symbol. The current culture's thousands separator symbol can appear in s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowThousands flag.
A culture-specific decimal point symbol. The current culture's decimal point symbol can appear in s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowDecimalPoint flag.
A sequence of the 0 digit. Fractional digits can appear in s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowDecimalPoint flag. If any digit other than 0 appears in fractional_digits, the method throws an OverflowException.
The 'e' or 'E' character, which indicates that s can be represented in exponential notation. The s parameter can represent a number in exponential notation if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowExponent flag. However, the s parameter must represent a number in the range of the Int16 data type and cannot have a non-zero fractional component.
A sequence of hexadecimal digits from 0 through f, or 0 through F.
A string with digits only (which corresponds to the NumberStyles.None style) always parses successfully. Most of the remaining NumberStyles members control elements that may be but are not required to be present in this input string. The following table indicates how individual NumberStyles members affect the elements that may be present in s.
Non-composite NumberStyles values
Elements permitted in s in addition to digits
Decimal digits only.
The . and fractional_digits elements. However, fractional_digits must consist of only one or more 0 digits or an OverflowException is thrown.
The s parameter can also use exponential notation.
The ws element at the beginning of s.
The ws element at the end of s.
A sign can appear before digits.
A sign can appear after digits.
The sign element in the form of parentheses enclosing the numeric value.
The , element.
The $ element.
If the NumberStyles.AllowHexSpecifier flag is used, s must be the string representation of a hexadecimal value without a prefix. For example, "9AF3" parses successfully, but "0x9AF3" does not.. The only other flags that can be present in style are NumberStyles.AllowLeadingWhite and NumberStyles.AllowTrailingWhite. (The NumberStyles enumeration has a composite number style, NumberStyles.HexNumber, that includes both white space flags.)
The provider parameter is an IFormatProvider implementation whose GetFormat method obtains a NumberFormatInfo object. The NumberFormatInfo object provides culture-specific information about the format of s. If provider is null, the NumberFormatInfo object for the current culture is used.
