Folks:

In VB.NET, I need to test a string for the following: whether it has any non-numeric characters, or a leading zero.

Good:
1234567
1234
8888853

Bad:
012345
12/3345
234,445
10-23-34-89

TIA!

Hi crafuse,

Try this function....

    Public Function TestNumeric(ByVal num As String) As Boolean
        If num.Substring(0, 1) = "0" Then
            Return False
        Else
            Dim n As Integer = Nothing
            Integer.TryParse(num, n)
            Return n <> Nothing
        End If
    End Function

Regards,

Wayne
