C# Query from Google

One of the queries that someone entered in to Google and found my site was:c# test a string to see if it is a number:I suppose there are a couple of ways that this can be done.

If you know the datatype that you want to convert it to [i.e you know the numeric range] you can use the Convert class.Convert.ToInt16 (short), Convert.ToInt32 (int), Convert.ToFloat (floats). etc etc

You could also use a regex along the lines of:


both of the above regex's will check to see if it is a numeric string. (Whole numbers only though).

Anyone who is looking for c# test a string to see if it is a number; I hope you find this usefull.

I lead the Chrome Developer Relations team at Google.

We want people to have the best experience possible on the web without having to install a native app or produce content in a walled garden.

Our team tries to make it easier for developers to build on the web by supporting every Chrome release, creating great content to support developers on web.dev, contributing to MDN, helping to improve browser compatibility, and some of the best developer tools like Lighthouse, Workbox, Squoosh to name just a few.

I love to learn about what you are building, and how I can help with Chrome or Web development in general, so if you want to chat with me directly, please feel free to book a consultation.
