Remarks

This method converts characters that represent decimal digits to their equivalent integral values. Decimal digits are characters in the DecimalDigitNumber category that can represent one of ten digits in the decimal (base 10) numbering system, from zero through nine. It includes characters such as U+0030 (DIGIT ZERO) through U+0039 (DIGIT NINE), U+0660 (ARABIC-INDIC DIGIT ZERO) through U+0669 (ARABIC-INDIC DIGIT NINE), U+07C0 (NKO DIGIT ZERO) through U+07C9 (NKO DIGIT NINE), and U+1040 (MYANMAR DIGIT ZERO) through U+1049 (MYANMAR DIGIT NINE).

For more information about Unicode characters, see the Unicode Standard.

Applies to

GetDecimalDigitValue(String, Int32)

Gets the decimal digit value of the numeric character at the specified index of the specified string.

public:
 static int GetDecimalDigitValue(System::String ^ s, int index);
public static int GetDecimalDigitValue (string s, int index);
static member GetDecimalDigitValue : string * int -> int
Public Shared Function GetDecimalDigitValue (s As String, index As Integer) As Integer

Parameters

s
String

The String containing the Unicode character for which to get the decimal digit value.

index
Int32

The index of the Unicode character for which to get the decimal digit value.

Returns

Int32

The decimal digit value of the numeric character at the specified index of the specified string.

-or-

-1, if the character at the specified index of the specified string is not a decimal digit.

Exceptions

index is outside the range of valid indexes in s.
