public static boolean IsDigit (
	String s, 
	int index
)
public static function IsDigit (
	s : String, 
	index : int
) : boolean

A String.

index

The character position in s.

Character positions in a string are indexed starting from zero.

Valid digits are members of the following category in UnicodeCategory: DecimalDigitNumber.

The following code example demonstrates IsDigit.

using System;

public class IsDigitSample {
	public static void Main() {
		char ch = '8';

		Console.WriteLine(Char.IsDigit(ch));					// Output: "True"
		Console.WriteLine(Char.IsDigit("sample string", 7));	// Output: "False"
	}
}

import System.* ;

public class IsDigitSample
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        char ch = '8';
      
        Console.WriteLine(Char.IsDigit(ch));                // Output: "True"
        Console.WriteLine(Char.IsDigit("sample string", 7));// Output: "False"
    } //main
} //IsDigitSample
