string-manipulation functions

what are the preferred VB.NET analogues for IsNumeric() and Len() and CInt()
& similar string-manipulation functions in VB6
Nov 20 '05 #1

len - string.length
cint - ctype("x", int32)

There isn't an analogous IsNumeric to my knowledge (but IsNumeric is still
there! Go VB!). A C# programmer would try int32.Parse or the appropriate
type and take action on an exception.

Cor
John,

They still exist as a major part from Vb.net, this question is often
discussed in this newsgroup.
So you can search for those threads (keywords like mid or len)
Beside this you can use much more methodes.
Look for instance for the string members and the regex, but there are a lot
more.

An advise often given in this newsgroup is, take that what fits you the
most, the result of the endcode will not be a big difference.

I hope this helps a little bit.
Cor

Ps. not all functions still exist.

I totally agree with Cor, but if you want to use them..

Type in Microsoft.Visua lBasic and when you hit the next period, you'll see
them all there in intellisense.

As a suggestion though, look through the string and regex classes, there is
a lot of backward compatibility in VB.NET for VB6, but that doesn't
necessarily mean you should use it.

HTH,

Bill

CInt, IsNumeric, and Len are still there. However, for Length, you can go
String.Length() as well.

ACK.

No... That's (IMO) really bad. I would prefer 'Integer.Parse' or
'Convert.ToInt3 2'.
There isn't an analogous IsNumeric to my knowledge (but
IsNumeric is still there! Go VB!). A C# programmer would
try int32.Parse or the appropriate type and take action on an

You can use 'Double.TryPars e' instead of 'IsNumeric'.

Examples for "backward compatibility" stuff?

If you understand what "BASIC" means, still use these functions.

I wish to execute code from a string.

I have tried several code example off of gotdotnet and other articles. Can somebody please show me the code to do this?

Hello, Could someone explain to me why the Standard conveners chose to typedef std::string rather than derive it from std::basic_string<char, ...>? The result of course is that it is effectively impossible to forward declare std::string. (Yes I am aware that some libraries have a string_fwd.h header, but this is not portable.) That said, is there any real reason why I can't derive an otherwise empty
