Return Value

true if the character is a valid hexadecimal digit; otherwise false.

Hexadecimal digits are the digits 0 to 9 and the letters A-F or a-f.

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 hexadecimal character", testChar);

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