Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.


This converter can only convert a 32-bit signed integer object to and from a string. The Int32 value type represents signed integers with values ranging from negative 2,147,483,648 through positive 2,147,483,647.

The ConvertFrom method uses the Parse method of Int32 with the integer value of NumberStyles.

The ConvertTo method uses the general ("G") format for the string returned.

For more information about type converters, see the TypeConverter base class and Implementing a Type Converter.

Note   You should never create an instance of an Int32Converter. Instead, call the GetConverter method of TypeDescriptor. For more information, see the examples in the TypeConverter base class.


[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following sample converts a variable of type Int32 to a string and vice versa.

[Visual Basic] 
Dim myInt32 As Integer = -967299
Dim myInt32String As String = "+1345556"
Console.WriteLine(TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(myInt32).ConvertTo(myInt32, GetType(String)))

int myInt32 = -967299;
string myInt32String = "+1345556";
Console.WriteLine(TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(myInt32).ConvertTo(myInt32, typeof(string))); 

int myInt32( -967299 );
String* myInt32String = S"+1345556";
Console::WriteLine(TypeDescriptor::GetConverter(__box(myInt32))->ConvertTo(__box(myInt32), __typeof(String)));
