[System.CLSCompliant(false)]
public static uint ToUInt32 (float value);
Public Shared Function ToUInt32 (value As Single) As UInteger
Parameters

Important

This API is not CLS-compliant.

Converts the specified string representation of a number to an equivalent 32-bit unsigned integer, using the specified culture-specific formatting information.

public:
 static System::UInt32 ToUInt32(System::String ^ value, IFormatProvider ^ provider);
[System.CLSCompliant(false)]
public static uint ToUInt32 (string value, IFormatProvider provider);
Public Shared Function ToUInt32 (value As String, provider As IFormatProvider) As UInteger
Parameters
value
String String String

A string that contains the number to convert.

provider
IFormatProvider IFormatProvider IFormatProvider

An object that supplies culture-specific formatting information.

Returns

A 32-bit unsigned integer that is equivalent to the number in value, or 0 (zero) if value is null.

Exceptions

value does not consist of an optional sign followed by a sequence of digits (0 through 9).

value represents a number that is less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

Examples

The following example defines a custom NumberFormatInfo object that recognizes the string "pos" as the positive sign and the string "neg" as the negative sign. It then attempts to convert each element of a numeric string array to an integer using both this provider and the NumberFormatInfo provider for the invariant culture.

Remarks

The return value is the result of invoking UInt32.Parse on value.

provider is an IFormatProvider instance that obtains a NumberFormatInfo object. The NumberFormatInfo object provides culture-specific information about the format of value. If provider is null, the NumberFormatInfo for the current culture is used.

If you prefer not to handle an exception if the conversion fails, you can call the UInt32.TryParse method instead. It returns a Boolean value that indicates whether the conversion succeeded or failed.

Remarks

The return value is the result of invoking the IConvertible.ToUInt32 method of the underlying type of value.

provider enables the user to specify culture-specific conversion information about the contents of value. For example, if value is a String that represents a number, provider could supply culture-specific information about the notation used to represent that number.

The base types ignore provider; however, the parameter may be used if value is a user-defined type that implements the IConvertible interface.

ToUInt32(String, Int32) ToUInt32(String, Int32) ToUInt32(String, Int32)

Important

This API is not CLS-compliant.

Converts the string representation of a number in a specified base to an equivalent 32-bit unsigned integer.

public:
 static System::UInt32 ToUInt32(System::String ^ value, int fromBase);
[System.CLSCompliant(false)]
public static uint ToUInt32 (string value, int fromBase);
Public Shared Function ToUInt32 (value As String, fromBase As Integer) As UInteger
Parameters
value
String String String

A string that contains the number to convert.

fromBase
Int32 Int32 Int32

The base of the number in value, which must be 2, 8, 10, or 16.

Returns

A 32-bit unsigned integer that is equivalent to the number in value, or 0 (zero) if value is null.

Exceptions

fromBase is not 2, 8, 10, or 16.

-or-

value, which represents a non-base 10 unsigned number, is prefixed with a negative sign.

value contains a character that is not a valid digit in the base specified by fromBase. The exception message indicates that there are no digits to convert if the first character in value is invalid; otherwise, the message indicates that value contains invalid trailing characters.

value, which represents a non-base 10 unsigned number, is prefixed with a negative sign.

-or-

value represents a number that is less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

The following example attempts to interpret each element in an array of numeric strings as a hexadecimal value and to convert it to an unsigned integer.

Remarks

If fromBase is 16, you can prefix the number specified by the value parameter with "0x" or "0X".

Because the UInt32 data type supports unsigned values only, the ToUInt32(String, Int32) method assumes that value is expressed using unsigned binary representation. In other words, all 32 bits are used to represent the numeric value, and a sign bit is absent. As a result, it is possible to write code in which a signed integer value that is out of the range of the UInt32 data type is converted to a UInt32 value without the method throwing an exception. The following example converts MinValue to its hexadecimal string representation, and then calls the ToUInt32(String, Int32) method. Instead of throwing an exception, the method displays the message, "0x80000000 converts to 2147483648."

// Create a hexadecimal value out of range of the UInt32 type.
string value = Convert.ToString(Int32.MinValue, 16);
// Convert it back to a number.
try
{
   UInt32 number = Convert.ToUInt32(value, 16);
   Console.WriteLine("0x{0} converts to {1}.", value, number);
}   
catch (OverflowException)
{
   Console.WriteLine("Unable to convert '0x{0}' to an unsigned integer.", 
                     value);
}   
' Create a hexadecimal value out of range of the UInt32 type.
Dim value As String = Convert.ToString(Integer.MinValue, 16)
' Convert it back to a number.
Try
   Dim number As UInt32 = Convert.ToUInt32(value, 16)
   Console.WriteLine("0x{0} converts to {1}.", value, number)
Catch e As OverflowException
   Console.WriteLine("Unable to convert '0x{0}' to an unsigned integer.", _
                     value)
End Try   

When performing binary operations or numeric conversions, it is always the responsibility of the developer to verify that a method or operator is using the appropriate numeric representation to interpret a particular value. The following example illustrates one technique for ensuring that the method does not inappropriately use binary representation to interpret a value that uses two's complement representation when converting a hexadecimal string to a UInt32 value. The example determines whether a value represents a signed or an unsigned integer while it is converting that value to its string representation. When the example converts the value to a UInt32 value, it checks whether the original value was a signed integer. If so, and if its high-order bit is set (which indicates that the original value was negative), the method throws an exception.

// Create a negative hexadecimal value out of range of the UInt32 type.
int sourceNumber = Int32.MinValue;
bool isSigned = Math.Sign((int)sourceNumber.GetType().GetField("MinValue").GetValue(null)) == -1;
string value = Convert.ToString(sourceNumber, 16);
UInt32 targetNumber;
try
{
   targetNumber = Convert.ToUInt32(value, 16);
   if (isSigned && ((targetNumber & 0x80000000) != 0))
      throw new OverflowException();
   else 
      Console.WriteLine("0x{0} converts to {1}.", value, targetNumber);
}
catch (OverflowException)
{
   Console.WriteLine("Unable to convert '0x{0}' to an unsigned integer.", 
                     value);

Remarks

Using the ToUInt32(String) method is equivalent to passing value to the UInt32.Parse(String) method. value is interpreted by using the formatting conventions of the current thread culture.

If you prefer not to handle an exception if the conversion fails, you can call the UInt32.TryParse method instead. It returns a Boolean value that indicates whether the conversion succeeded or failed.

Remarks

The return value is the result of invoking the IConvertible.ToUInt32 method of the underlying type of value.
