Want to convert a string to a big number. For example, want to achieve
ToULong("1234567890");
 I got the error:
"error CS0103: The name 'ToULong' does not exist in the current context"

Alternative to ToULong is ToUInt64. Try it.

Alternative, albeit it only semantic since they both do the same thing:
ulong ul = ulong.Parse("1234567890");
