C# Question

# Difference between Decimal and string Decimal in C#

Example: These Two values will come simultaneously ..

• if
`Value`
comes as
`0.56`
I have to to multiply it by
`100`
and pass it as
`56`

• if
`Value`
comes as
`56.0`
then I have to divide it by
`100`

I tried this with the following code

``````string s = "56.0" or "0.56"
float dval;
bool bval = float.tryparse(s,out dval);
if (bval)
{
dval = decimal.parse(s); // if dal ="0.56"
dval = dval*100;
}
else
{
dval = decimal.parse(s); // if dal ="56"
dval = dval/100;
}
``````

How can I do this because every time this returns
`True`
?

`TryParse` returns `true` if it sucessfully parsed a number. So, it's `true` in both cases. You need to check whether the parsed number is less 1 or bigger (this is my speculation, of course) Try this:

``````string s = "56.0";
float dval;
bool bval = float.TryParse(s, out dval);
if (bval)
{
if (dval < 1)
dval *= 100;
else
dval /= 100;
Console.WriteLine(dval);
}
else
{
Console.WriteLine("it's not a number");
}
``````
