mydouble = Convert.ToDouble(mystring);

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

A few ways; all just C#, not specific to Ninja:

double doubleVar;
string stringVar = "12";
doubleVar = Convert.ToDouble(stringVar);

See Convert.ToDouble Method (String) (System)
(This is what I would use if I knew the string would only contain numbers)

---------
Also

string stringVar = "12";
double doubleVar;
doubleVar = Double.Parse(stringVar);

See Double.Parse Method (String) (System)

-------
Also

string stringVar = "12";
double doubleVar;

if (Double.TryParse(stringVar, out doubleVar))
{
// If successful, variable doubleVar will contain the converted double
// Do something with doubleVar here
}
else
{
// If not successful (maybe the string didn't have numbers in it, handle it here
}

See Double.TryParse Method (String, Double) (System)

Many Thanks

What a wealth of knowledge and talented programmers we have here! I was trying to take text from a windows form and use it as variables in a strategy. Worked perfectly!
Thank You!

This worked for my situation;

double doubleVar;
string stringVar = "12";
doubleVar = Convert.ToDouble(stringVar);
