Type: System::Char

The hexadecimal digit (0-9, a-f, A-F) to convert.

Return Value

Type: System::Int32

An Int32 value that contains a number from 0 to 15 that corresponds to the specified hexadecimal digit.

Exception Condition

digit is not a valid hexadecimal digit (0-9, a-f, A-F).

The FromHex method converts a character representing a hexadecimal digit (0-9, a-f, A-F) to its decimal value (0 to 15). If digit is not a valid hexadecimal digit, an ArgumentException exception is thrown.

The following example determines whether a character is a hexadecimal character and, if it is, writes the corresponding decimal value to the console.

char testChar = 'e';
if ( Uri::IsHexDigit( testChar ) == true )
   Console::WriteLine( "'{0}' is the hexadecimal representation of {1}",
      testChar, Uri::FromHex( testChar ) );
   Console::WriteLine( "'{0}' is not a hex character", testChar );

String^ returnString = Uri::HexEscape( testChar );
Console::WriteLine( "The hexadecimal value of '{0}' is {1}", testChar, returnString );
