Hello,

There's no build in one for C#(there's one with vb.net)

but you could build one easily, look at this method


public bool IsNumber(string s)
            {
                  try
                  {
                        Double.Parse(s);
                        return true;
                  }
                  catch
                  {
                        return false;
                  }
            }

            private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
            {
                  if (IsNumber(textBox1.Text))
                        MessageBox.Show("Valid Number");
             else
                        MessageBox.Show("Not Valid Number");
            
            }

HTH,

I made something similar ..
if(TxtCardNumber.Text == "" || checkNumeric(TxtCardNumber.Text) || TxtCardNumber.TextLength<16)
{
      MessageBox.Show("Enter The Valid Card Number .","Valid Number",MessageBoxButtons.OK);
      TxtCardNumber.ResetText();
      TxtCardNumber.Focus();
}

private bool checkNumeric(string check)
{
      foreach(char x in check)
      {
      if(!Char.IsNumber(x))
            return true;
      }
               return false;
}

But I think using try .. catch is better ..
Thanx Mohammad ;o)
