A string.

index
Type: System.Int32

The position of the character to evaluate in s.

Return Value

This method determines whether a Char is a radix-10 digit. This contrasts with IsNumber, which determines whether a Char is of any numeric Unicode category. Numbers include characters such as fractions, subscripts, superscripts, Roman numerals, currency numerators, encircled numbers, and script-specific digits.

Character positions in a string are indexed starting from zero.

Valid digits are members of the UnicodeCategory.DecimalDigitNumber category.

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"
	}
}
