you need regex for this

//first you need to include header file 

using System.Text.RegularExpressions;

 string newString = Regex.Replace("test10", "[^.0-9]", "");
 int k = int.Parse(newString);

string newString = Regex.Replace(Textbox1.Text, @"[^\d]", string.Empty);

How about "Regex.Replace("-3E7", "[^.0-9]", "");"? is it not valid?
Hi beginner in C#.net,

You can use this function for validating the textBox input:
using System.Globalization;

public static bool IsNumeric(string value, System.Globalization.NumberStyles NumberStyle)
{
    Double result;
    return Double.TryParse(value, NumberStyle,System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture, out result);
}


Just call the function where value is the TextBox text and you can use NumberStyle.Integer for validating the text as integer value.

I hope this help,
:)

Nice Answer! My 5 :)

Nice method. But it will not solve OP question. Will the method work if the text is "test10" ?
just try!!

using System.Text.RegularExpressions;

string newString = Regex.Replace(Convert.Tostring(Txt1.Text), "[^.0-9]", "");
int b = Convert.ToInt32(newString);

Try to use string.Empty instead of "". It is easer to read and understand.
My 5. Good use of regex
Your best bet is to check for each character if it is a number.
My code snippet;
Test123Test456 will become 123456
C#
string Numbers = "";
for(int i = 0; i < Txt1.Length; i++) //Iterate through all the characters
{
  if ((byte)Txt1.Text[i] >= 38 && (byte)Txt1.Text[i] <= 57) //Using ascii values to check if it's a number, see also; ASCII Table
  {
    Numbers += Txt1.Text[i]; //If it's a number, store it in Numbers
  }
}
Response.Write(Convert.ToInt32(Numbers));

Something is wrong in your if statement.
Numbers in ASCII charset begins from 48 and ends in 57.
http://www.asciitable.com/

char 38 to 47 has nothing to do with numbers.
You can use Regular Expression[^] to get the value or validate input.

C#
string valueString = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace(Txt1.Text, @"[^\d]", string.Empty, System.Text.RegularExpressions.RegexOptions.Compiled);
int b = int.Parse(valueString);


This will get you these outputs:

"10tons wast and 8 tons of stone" => 108
"108" => 108
"Hello Peter, please call me at (0)47-784-9787-1045" => 04778497871045

You have to be more specific. What if you have a value of "10tons wast and 8 tons of stone".
Do you then what the integer value to be "108" or just "10" or "8" ?

You could do one/all of these:

0) Handle the TextChanged event for the TextBox and simply not allow anything but integer values to be input

1) Wait until the user clicks the submit button and call Int32.TryParse() method instead of Convert.ToInt32().

2) Use the built-in asp.net validator functionality.

Google is your friend.

All well and valid but he wants to inform user :)
C#
int b;
try
{
    b =Int32.Parse(Text);
}
catch (System.FormatException ex)
{
   Response.Write("Integer Dude!!! I N T E G E R!");
}
catch (System.OverflowException)
{
   Response.Write("Don't test me...");
}
finally
{
    b = 0;
}

ex is never used
Try this:
C#
string Numbers = "";
for(int i = 0; i < Txt1.Length; i++) 
{
  if ((byte)Txt1.Text[i] >= 38 & (byte)Txt1.Text[i] <= 57) 
  {
    Numbers = Numbers + "" + Txt1.Text[i]; 
  }
}
Response.Write(Convert.ToInt32(Numbers));
