How convert a string type to an int type?

For general type conversions, consult the System.Convert method first. System.Convert features static methods for most everyday type conversions.

When converting from a type String, determine whether the type to be converted to has a Parse method. In fact, the method name may be derived from the word parse. For example, the DateTime.ParseExact method can be used to convert from a type String to a type DateTime.
