int c = (int)'a';
You can also use the Convert class
int c = Convert.ToInt32('a');

THis is how it's:
int i = (int)'a';
Just cast the char to an integer and you have it (assuming the character actually comes from the ASCII set of characters).

If you mean that you want the character code in Unicode (not ASCII), then a character translates into an integer without the need for conversion or explicit casting:

  int i = 'a';

If you really want the ASCII code, you use the ASCII encoding:

  int i = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes("a")[0];

Hi,

There is no error in your code in this statement. It works perfect !!

int i = Convert.ToInt16('a');
The result in i is 97 after this statement.

Please check the error is doe to some other statement.

Following an 'Objection' by pratima_mcs (at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q_26844572.html) to the intended closure of this question, it has been reviewed by at least one Moderator and is being closed as recommended by the Expert.
 
At this point I am going to re-start the auto-close procedure.
