is it possible to Convert text to a number ??, example: i have a combobox with a few items in it one , two , three , four , etc... and the combobox is linked to a URL (example) "www.exampleNumber"+ combobox1.text + ".com" Is it possible to convert the text to a number , without to change the combobox text ? So the user still see the text ? but in the link will the text convert to a number (exampleNumber1.com ; exampleNumber2.com ; etc...) sorry if this was a noob Question , but i just started with C# Ps: Sorry for my english , i did my best . hope you can understand what i mean. :?
