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

public:
static float ToSingle(
	String^ value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System::String^

A string that contains the number to convert.

Return Value

Type: System::Single

A single-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 Single::MinValue or greater than Single::MaxValue.

Using the ToSingle(String^) method is equivalent to passing value to the Single::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 Single::TryParse method instead. It returns a Boolean value that indicates whether the conversion succeeded or failed.

The following example attempts to convert each element in an array of numeric strings to a Single value.
