Converts the specified string representation of a number to an equivalent double-precision floating-point number.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
- Type: System..::..String
A string that contains the number to convert.
Return ValueType: System..::..Double
A double-precision floating-point number that is equivalent to the number in value, or 0 (zero) if value is nullNothingnullptrunita null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
Using the method is equivalent to passing value to the Double..::..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 Double..::..TryParse method instead. It returns a Boolean value that indicates whether the conversion succeeded or failed.
