This overload of the Parse(String, IFormatProvider) method is typically used to convert text that can be formatted in a variety of ways to an Int64 value. For example, it can be used to convert the text entered by a user into an HTML text box to a numeric value.

The s parameter contains a number of the form:

[ws][sign]digits[ws]

Elements in square brackets ([ and ]) are optional. The following table describes each element.

Element

Description

ws

An optional white space.

sign

An optional sign.
