[ACCEPTED]-converting string to uint-visual-studio-2008
Use this overload of Convert.ToUInt32 where you specify the base of 2 the conversion. It should work with or 1 without the leading "0x".
UInt32 x = Convert.ToUInt32(location_txtbox.Text, 16);
Assuming location_txtbox is a TextBox, you 3 may want to use .Text instead of .ToString().
And 2 I think you need to pass 16 as the second 1 parameter to parse hex: e.g. Convert.UInt32( X, 16)
Convert.ToUInt32 just calls
UInt32.Parse(String). If you call the overload that takes 4 a
NumberStyles parameter, you can specify your value 3 is hexadecimal. Trouble is, you'll have 2 to cut out the leading "0x", as 1 it isn't allowed.
var hexNumber = "0x777".Substring(2); uint.Parse(hexNumber, System.Globalization.NumberStyles.HexNumber)
A) Never use Convert without wrapping it 8 in a try/catch, or unless you are VERY sure 7 that what you are parsing will be parsed 6 successfully.
B) Use uint.TryParse. In particular, use 5 the one that allows you to specify the number 4 style. The reference for it is at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/kadka85s.aspx
C) in 3 the style it appears that you will need 2 NumberStyles.HexSpecifier
D) Use the Text 1 property, as stated above.
