You can use Parse static method for convert a string to a "numeric"
value. For example:

    string s = "123";
    int i = Int32.Parse(s);

Now you got an integer.

Another class you can use is "Convert" that has methods to convert from
any of the primitive types to another...

    string s = "123";
    int i = Convert.ToInt32(s);

That's all.
