Int8.From

Syntax

Int8.From(value as any, optional culture as nullable text, optional roundingMode as nullable number) as nullable number

About

Returns a signed 8-bit integer number value from the given value. If the given value is null, Int8.From returns null. If the given value is number within the range of signed 8-bit integer without a fractional part, value is returned. If it has fractional part, then the number is rounded with the rounding mode specified. The default rounding mode is RoundingMode.ToEven. If the given value is of any other type, see Number.FromText for converting it to number value, then the previous statement about converting number value to signed 8-bit integer number value applies. See Number.Round for the available rounding modes. An optional culture may also be provided (for example, "en-US").

Example 1

Get the signed 8-bit integer number value of "4".

Int8.From("4")

4

Example 2

Get the signed 8-bit integer number value of "4.5" using RoundingMode.AwayFromZero.

Int8.From("4.5", null, RoundingMode.AwayFromZero)
