Is there a better way of testing if a string can be converted to an integer other than something like the following?
Public Function IsInt(ByVal value As Object) As Boolean
Dim temp As Integer = CInt(value)
Catch ex As Exception
by "better" I mean less verbose and/or w/o an exception.
TryParse would be the way to go, but I'm using the compact framework 2.0 and tryparse doesn't seem to be implemented....
It seems that MarkJ is correct and the above seems to be functionally the same as IsNumeric, so I suppose that's my answer. I don't know why I thought CInt was more strict than IsNumeric. I guess it's better to test using CInt verses IsNumeric since that's the function I'm using to do the conversion?
