Hi,

I am trying to parse textbox value into double but i am getting error "System.FormatException was unhandled by user code - Input string was not in a correct format;
This is driving me crazy! Can anyone see what the problem is?"

I am trying like this,

C#
double a= double.Parse(txtcoeffciantA.Text);
           double b = double.Parse(txtcoeffciantB.Text);
           double c= double.Parse(txtcoeffciantC.Text);

i have the values in corresponding textbox like 0.00051368, -15, 1.89574224.

I have tried with "double.Tryparse" then i am not getting exception but endup with all zero's. i know the difference between parse and Tryparse.

Please someone help me what is wrong in that line.

I tried exactly your code:
C#
TextBox txtcoeffciantA = new TextBox();
txtcoeffciantA.Text = "0.00051368";
TextBox txtcoeffciantB = new TextBox();
txtcoeffciantB.Text = "-15";
TextBox txtcoeffciantC = new TextBox();
txtcoeffciantC.Text = "1.89574224";
double a = double.Parse(txtcoeffciantA.Text);
double b = double.Parse(txtcoeffciantB.Text);
double c = double.Parse(txtcoeffciantC.Text);
Console.WriteLine("{0}:{1}:{2}", a, b, c);
And it worked exactly as I would expect:
0.00051368:-15:1.89574224


So put a breakpoint on the first Parse line, and examine your inputs. One of them is not what you think it is...

The problem is system regional settings...i need to put "," instead of ".".Really i don't know this is the problem so i have asked question. Thanks for your suggestion.

If you want to use a specific format, there is also a double.Parse overload which takes a specific culture rather than using the default system setting.
Did you check the regional settings of the system? Might be expecting 0,123 instead of 0.123

Good luck!

You can get the information from System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.NumberFormat. Check this link for more info:
