Remarks

The style parameter defines the style elements (such as white space or the positive sign) that are allowed in the s parameter for the parse operation to succeed. It must be a combination of bit flags from the NumberStyles enumeration. Depending on the value of style, the s parameter may include the following elements:

[ws][$][sign][digits,]digits[.fractional_digits][e[sign]digits][ws]

Or, if style includes AllowHexSpecifier:

[ws]hexdigits[ws]

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

Element Description
ws Optional white space. White space can appear at the beginning of s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowLeadingWhite flag, or at the end of s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowTrailingWhite flag.
$ A culture-specific currency symbol. Its position in the string is defined by the NumberFormatInfo.CurrencyPositivePattern and NumberFormatInfo.CurrencyNegativePattern property of the current culture. The current culture's currency symbol can appear in s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowCurrencySymbol flag.
sign An optional sign. The sign can appear at the beginning of s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowLeadingSign flag, and it can appear at the end of s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowTrailingSign flag. Parentheses can be used in s to indicate a negative value if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowParentheses flag.
digits A sequence of digits from 0 through 9.
, A culture-specific thousands separator symbol. The current culture's thousands separator symbol can appear in s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowThousands flag.
. A culture-specific decimal point symbol. The current culture's decimal point symbol can appear in s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowDecimalPoint flag.
fractional_digits A sequence of the 0 digit. Fractional digits can appear in s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowDecimalPoint flag. If any digit other than 0 appears in fractional_digits, the method throws an OverflowException.
e The 'e' or 'E' character, which indicates that s can be represented in exponential notation. The s parameter can represent a number in exponential notation if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowExponent flag. However, the s parameter must represent a number in the range of the Int16 data type and cannot have a non-zero fractional component.
hexdigits A sequence of hexadecimal digits from 0 through f, or 0 through F.

Note

Any terminating NUL (U+0000) characters in s are ignored by the parsing operation, regardless of the value of the style argument.

A string with digits only (which corresponds to the NumberStyles.None style) always parses successfully. Most of the remaining NumberStyles members control elements that may be but are not required to be present in this input string. The following table indicates how individual NumberStyles members affect the elements that may be present in s.

Non-composite NumberStyles values Elements permitted in s in addition to digits
NumberStyles.None Decimal digits only.
NumberStyles.AllowDecimalPoint The . and fractional_digits elements. However, fractional_digits must consist of only one or more 0 digits or an OverflowException is thrown.
NumberStyles.AllowExponent The s parameter can also use exponential notation.
NumberStyles.AllowLeadingWhite The ws element at the beginning of s.
NumberStyles.AllowTrailingWhite The ws element at the end of s.
NumberStyles.AllowLeadingSign A sign can appear before digits.
NumberStyles.AllowTrailingSign A sign can appear after digits.
NumberStyles.AllowParentheses The sign element in the form of parentheses enclosing the numeric value.
NumberStyles.AllowThousands The , element.
NumberStyles.AllowCurrencySymbol The $ element.

If the NumberStyles.AllowHexSpecifier flag is used, s must be the string representation of a hexadecimal value without a prefix. For example, "9AF3" parses successfully, but "0x9AF3" does not.. The only other flags that can be present in style are NumberStyles.AllowLeadingWhite and NumberStyles.AllowTrailingWhite. (The NumberStyles enumeration has a composite number style, NumberStyles.HexNumber, that includes both white space flags.)

The provider parameter is an IFormatProvider implementation whose GetFormat method obtains a NumberFormatInfo object. The NumberFormatInfo object provides culture-specific information about the format of s. If provider is null, the NumberFormatInfo object for the current culture is used.

Remarks

The style parameter defines the style elements (such as white space or a sign symbol) that are allowed in the s parameter for the parse operation to succeed. It must be a combination of bit flags from the NumberStyles enumeration. Depending on the value of style, the s parameter may include the following elements:

[ws][$][sign][digits,]digits[.fractional_digits][e[sign]digits][ws]

Or, if style includes AllowHexSpecifier:

[ws]hexdigits[ws]

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

Element Description
ws Optional white space. White space can appear at the beginning of s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowLeadingWhite flag, or at the end of s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowTrailingWhite flag.
$ A culture-specific currency symbol. Its position in the string is defined by the NumberFormatInfo.CurrencyPositivePattern and NumberFormatInfo.CurrencyNegativePattern property of the current culture. The current culture's currency symbol can appear in s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowCurrencySymbol flag.
sign An optional sign. The sign can appear at the beginning of s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowLeadingSign flag, and it can appear at the end of s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowTrailingSign flag. Parentheses can be used in s to indicate a negative value if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowParentheses flag.
digits A sequence of digits from 0 through 9.
, A culture-specific thousands separator symbol. The current culture's thousands separator symbol can appear in s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowThousands flag.
. A culture-specific decimal point symbol. The current culture's decimal point symbol can appear in s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowDecimalPoint flag.
fractional_digits A sequence of the 0 digit. Fractional digits can appear in s if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowDecimalPoint flag. If any digit other than 0 appears in fractional_digits, the method throws an OverflowException.
e The 'e' or 'E' character, which indicates that s can be represented in exponential notation. The s parameter can represent a number in exponential notation if style includes the NumberStyles.AllowExponent flag. However, the s parameter must represent a number in the range of the Int16 data type and cannot have a non-zero fractional component.
hexdigits A sequence of hexadecimal digits from 0 through f, or 0 through F.

Note

Any terminating NUL (U+0000) characters in s are ignored by the parsing operation, regardless of the value of the style argument.

A string with digits only (which corresponds to the NumberStyles.None style) always parses successfully. Most of the remaining NumberStyles members control elements that may be but are not required to be present in this input string. The following table indicates how individual NumberStyles members affect the elements that may be present in s.

Non-composite NumberStyles values Elements permitted in s in addition to digits
NumberStyles.None Decimal digits only.
NumberStyles.AllowDecimalPoint The . and fractional_digits elements. However, fractional_digits must consist of only one or more 0 digits or an OverflowException is thrown.
NumberStyles.AllowExponent The s parameter can also use exponential notation.
NumberStyles.AllowLeadingWhite The ws element at the beginning of s.
NumberStyles.AllowTrailingWhite The ws element at the end of s.
NumberStyles.AllowLeadingSign A sign can appear before digits.
NumberStyles.AllowTrailingSign A sign can appear after digits.
NumberStyles.AllowParentheses The sign element in the form of parentheses enclosing the numeric value.
NumberStyles.AllowThousands The , element.
NumberStyles.AllowCurrencySymbol The $ element.

If the NumberStyles.AllowHexSpecifier flag is used, s must be the string representation of a hexadecimal value without a prefix. For example, "9AF3" parses successfully, but "0x9AF3" does not. The only other flags that can be present in style are NumberStyles.AllowLeadingWhite and NumberStyles.AllowTrailingWhite. (The NumberStyles enumeration has a composite number style, NumberStyles.HexNumber, that includes both white space flags.)

The s parameter is parsed using the formatting information in a NumberFormatInfo object that is initialized for the current system culture. For more information, see NumberFormatInfo.CurrentInfo. To parse s using the formatting information of a specific culture, call the Int16.Parse(String, NumberStyles, IFormatProvider) method.

Remarks

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 Optional white space.
sign An optional sign.
digits A sequence of digits ranging from 0 to 9.

The s parameter is interpreted using the NumberStyles.Integer style. In addition to the integer value's decimal digits, only leading and trailing spaces together with a leading sign are allowed. To explicitly define the style elements that can be present in s, use either the Int16.Parse(String, NumberStyles) or the Parse method.

The s parameter is parsed using the formatting information in a NumberFormatInfo object that is initialized for the current system culture. For more information, see CurrentInfo. To parse a string using the formatting information of some other culture, use the Int16.Parse(String, IFormatProvider) or the Int16.Parse(String, NumberStyles, IFormatProvider) method.

See also

Converts the string representation of a number in a specified culture-specific format to its 16-bit signed integer equivalent.

public:
 static short Parse(System::String ^ s, IFormatProvider ^ provider);
public static short Parse (string s, IFormatProvider provider);
static member Parse : string * IFormatProvider -> int16
Public Shared Function Parse (s As String, provider As IFormatProvider) As Short

Parameters

s
String String String String

A string containing a number to convert.

provider
IFormatProvider IFormatProvider IFormatProvider IFormatProvider

An IFormatProvider that supplies culture-specific formatting information about s.

Returns

A 16-bit signed integer equivalent to the number specified in s.

Exceptions

s represents a number less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

Remarks

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.
digits A sequence of digits ranging from 0 to 9.

The s parameter is interpreted using the NumberStyles.Integer style. In addition to decimal digits, only leading and trailing spaces together with a leading sign are allowed in s. To explicitly define the style elements together with the culture-specific formatting information that can be present in s, use the Int16.Parse(String, NumberStyles, IFormatProvider) method.

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