How do you convert a sql server defined field smallint to a int? Fields UnitsOnOrder and UnitsInStock are defined as smallint in sql server.  I get an error using the "Convert.ToInt16".

int intUnitsOnOrder;
int intUnitsInStock;
TextBox txtUnitsInStock = (TextBox)e.Item.Cells[4].Controls[0];
TextBox txtUnitsOnOrder = (TextBox)e.Item.Cells[5].Controls[0];
intUnitsOnOrder = Convert.ToInt16(txtUnitsOnOrder.ToString());  ???? error

It should be

intUnitsOnOrder = Convert.ToInt16(txtUnitsOnOrder.Text);

oops, it should be

intUnitsOnOrder = Convert.ToInt32(txtUnitsOnOrder.Text);  

because you need an int type.

Hi hojoformo

May I know what kind of language you are using?  I thought you are using C# but there should be no Int16.Convert().  Are you sure it works for you?
