Here's a way
        Dim str As String = "Char(6)"
        Dim sep() As Char = New Char() {"(", ")"}
        Dim result() As String = str.Split(sep)
 
        MessageBox.Show(result(1))

The easiest method is to use Regular Expressions....
        Dim s As String = "VarChar(6)"
        Dim regex As New System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex("\((\d+)\)")
        Dim num As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(regex.Match(s).Groups(1).Value)
