Hi experts, i wanna ask you about the best way convert object to integer. This is my trick :) :

int value = ((IConvertible)ExecuteScalarQuery(partID, sid)).Int32(null));

Is there any trick that certainly better than my trick experts.. ?? :confused:

What is 'ExecuteScalarQuery'?

ExecuteScalarQuery is a method that return an object as value.

Looks messy. I always call ToString and use int.TryParse, so that if it's not an integer, no exception is thrown. But ExecuteScalar returns an int, so why does this method not return one ?

Mmm.. are u sure it is more faster than my trick in convert an object to int expert :confuse: ??

It's DEFINITELY faster if your object is not an int, as an exception is avoided. If it IS an int, why does your method not just return an int ?

DEFINITELY faster ?? wooww.. That sound seems good.. :) Mmm.. ok.. i will try as u tell me.. Thank you. :)
You can try this

int value= (int)<object value="">;
int value=Convert.ToInt32(<object value="">);

<pre lang="cs">int test = int.Parse(string.Format("{0}", myobject))
