Convert a hexadecimal value to decimal in C#

Convert a hexadecimal value to decimal in C#

C# program to change over a hexadecimal value to decimal: Here, we will figure out how to change over a given hex value to the decimal value?

Given an integer in the hexadecimal arrangement, we need to change over it into a decimal organization in C#.

To change over a hexadecimal value to the decimal value, we use Convert.ToInt32() work by determining the base on given number organization, its syntax is:

integer_value = Convert.ToInt32(variable_name, 16); 

Here,

  • variable_name is a variable that contains the hexadecimal value (we can likewise give the hex value).
  • 16 is the base of the hexadecimal value.

Example:

    Input:
    hex_value = "10FA"
    
    Output:
    int_value = 4346

C# code to change over hexadecimal to decimal

using System;
using System.Text;

namespace Test
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            //declaring a variable and assigning hex value
            string hex_value = "10FA";

            //converting hex to integer
            int int_value = Convert.ToInt32(hex_value, 16);

            //printing the values
            Console.WriteLine("hex_value = {0}", hex_value);
            Console.WriteLine("int_value = {0}", int_value);

            //hit ENTER to exit
            Console.ReadLine();
        }
    }
}

Output

hex_value = 10FA
int_value = 4346

Testing with invalid hexadecimal value

As we realize that a hex value contains digits from 0 to 9, A to F and a to f, if there is an invalid character, the change won’t happen and a mistake will be tossed.

In the given example, there is an invalid character ‘T‘ in the hex_value, in this way, the program will toss a blunder.

using System;
using System.Text;

namespace Test
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            try
            {
                //declaring a variable and assigning hex value
                string hex_value = "10FAT";

                //converting hex to integer
                int int_value = Convert.ToInt32(hex_value, 16);

                //printing the values
                Console.WriteLine("hex_value = {0}", hex_value);
                Console.WriteLine("int_value = {0}", int_value);
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(ex.ToString());
            }

            //hit ENTER to exit
            Console.ReadLine();
        }
    }
}

Output

System.FormatException: Additional non-parsable characters are 
at the end of the string. at 
System.ParseNumbers.StringToInt(String s, Int32 radix, Int32 flags, 
Int32* currPos)
   at Test.Program.Main(String[] args) in F:\JustTechReview
