Hello all I have a string that I want to check if it can be converted to an integer first.  This is using .Net FW 1.1 I dont see a TryParse in intellisenes.  Not sure if there is a namespace I need etc.  What I am doing now is.

DataTable dtblBookDetails = BookDetailsDrvr.GetBookDetailByBookID(Convert.ToInt32(strImageName));

I want to check strImageName first.  If you can provide the sample code that would be helpful.  Thanks all
