SerializationInfo.GetInt32(String) SerializationInfo.GetInt32(String) SerializationInfo.GetInt32(String) SerializationInfo.GetInt32(String) Method

Definition

Retrieves a 32-bit signed integer value from the SerializationInfo store.

public:
 int GetInt32(System::String ^ name);
public int GetInt32 (string name);
member this.GetInt32 : string -> int
Public Function GetInt32 (name As String) As Integer

Parameters

name
String String String String

The name of the value to retrieve.

Returns

The 32-bit signed integer associated with name.

Exceptions

The value associated with name cannot be converted to a 32-bit signed integer.

An element with the specified name is not found in the current instance.

Remarks

If the value is a 32-bit signed integer, or can be converted to one, that value is returned; otherwise, a InvalidCastException is thrown. All conversions are done by the IFormatterConverter associated with this SerializationInfo.
