That IS an integer. Whatever you're using to display the value is doing so in hexadecimal format. 0x000000f3 is 243 in decimal.

Thank You for quick response .
Now i got it . But just curious why it shows in hexadecimal format and not in integer directly like it does for List or any other collections.

You still haven't said what "IT" is. If you're talking about the debugger in Visual Studio, right click the value and uncheck "Hexadecimal Display".

ya sorry I realized it later, while looking at debugger settings.
Thank You !

It is an integer it is just that the display format is hexadecimal as indicated by the leading 0x

Read about formatting numbers in C. C and C++ are ancestors of C# and both share a lot of things.
Here is links to references books on C and C++ by the authors of the languages. Note than C is the ancestor of C++, so knowing C is always useful with C++.
