can someone tell me how to convert a string to a float.


does not work.

float result;
if (Float.TryParse(myString, out result)) {
    // parse was successful and result contains the parsed value
} else {
    // parse failed

thank you but i already came up with an answer.

float fCost = Convert.ToInt64(TextBox9.Text);
