I'm pretty new to VB.net, having only recently migrated from VB5(!). I'd appreciate any help at all with the following problem that I have on a project;
I'm reading data in from a comma-separated text file and storing the data in an array for later use. Some of the values are to remain as strings, and I need to convert some to integers, for which I was trying to use, for example, integer.parse(ar(0)).
My problem is that the string values are randomly distributed through the text file, so I need to be able to test whether the string can be converted at all before doing the conversion.
So - can anyone tell me if there is there a way to do this, or should I be looking for an alternative method?
