As the error message has already suggested you, the input is not correct and it can not be converted in to an int.

The best thing you can do is put a break-point on this line of code and then see what is the value you have selected comboBox1.

As per your comments, you are having values like 1-3, 5-6. If you want both values, you will have to have it in two different integer variables as shown below

string[] splitValues = Int32.Parse(comboBox1.SelectedItem.Split('-');
int firstValue = Int32.Parse(splitValues[0]);
int firstValue = Int32.Parse(splitValues[1]);

Hope that helps.

Hi Vinayak,

Please note that you as per your input you are conveting wrong value into integer.

Your combobox values are in the below form

1-5
6-10
11-20

to convet this value into integer you need to split these value into two part by separetor "-". And then you can convert this value into integer.


But the question is what value you want from this combobox.

i need 1-5 from combobox
digimanus at 12-Nov-12 6:51am
   
do you use a multiselect combobox?
Mohd. Mukhtar at 12-Nov-12 6:35am
   
you can get this value from the combobox as below.
string selectedValue = comboBox1.SelectedItem.ToString();

But you can not convert it directly into integer.

Remove all non-int characters from the string you are converting. If you have a ComboBox item which contains non-int characters but you need the int part then use a character array and passing the character array(of the string to be converted) remove the non-int characters and store the final string to be converted in a new variable. Then convert this new string you got containing only int-characters.
