Or just

int price = Integer.parseInt(startingPrice.getText());

int       i = Integer.parseInt(s);
long       l = Long.parseLong(s);
float       f = Float.parseFloat(s);
double       d = Double.parseDouble(s);

Convert integers with some base (radix) other than 10 by using these two methods.
if you want to convert numbers in hexadecimal or base 2 ... use

int       i = Integer.parseInt(s, radix);
long       l = Long.parseLong(s, radix);

For example, to convert a string containing the hexadecimal number "F7" to an integer, call

i = Integer.parseInt("F7", 16)
