If Price is nonnumeric then
   Price = 0.00;

double Price;

How do I check for non numeric.

If price is defined as a double, then price *is* numeric.  No need to check anything.

Here's an example of using the TryParse() method that angellll intended you to see.  If it helps you,
credit angellll.

        Dim price As String = ""   'Non numeric

        Dim dPrice As Double
        Double.TryParse(price, dPrice)

        MsgBox(dPrice.ToString())

From your original post:
 >      double Price;

If Price is defined like that, it will _never_ have a value of 'a'.   A variable defined as a double cannot hold strings.

Unless the value is gathered as a string and is to be assigned to a double... in which case TryParse() would be good.

I think maybe the question is a little too vague.

Abour VBRocks example: in VBN it's possible to use IsNumeric function. Really, it is possible to to import Microsoft.VisualBasic namespace in C# and use the function in C# (not really recommended).

Read good discussion and explanation of number of approaches you may use:
