Converting String to Int in a Method With C#


C# makes it easy to move between fundamental object types.  In the sample below, I will show you how to convert a string to int inside a method.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace method001
class Program
static int calculDob(int a)
int year = 2008 - a; //calculation
return year; // the value being returned

static void Main(string[] args)
Console.WriteLine("How old are you? ");// asking for some data
int age = Convert.ToInt16(Console.ReadLine());// convert the entry to a int type and assign the value to the age variable
Console.WriteLine("You were born in: {0}",calculDob(age));
