Different Ways to Take Input and Print a Float Value in C#
  • Last Updated : 28 May, 2020

In C#,  we know that Console.ReadLine() method is used to read string from the standard output device. Then this value is converted into the float type if it is not string type by default. There are different methods available to convert taken input to a float value. Following methods can be used for this purpose:

  • Single.Parse() Method
  • float.Parse() Method
  • Convert.ToSingle() Method

Single.Parse() Method

The Single.Parse() method is used to convert given string value to the float value. This method is consist of the following: 

  •  Single is a class.
  •  Parse() is its method.

Syntax:

float_value = Single.Parse(Console.ReadLine());

Example: Take input of a float value using Single.Parse() Method

C#




// C# program to Take input 
// of a float value using 
// Single.Parse() Method
    
using System;
using System.Text;
  
public class GFG{
      
    // Main Method
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        //declaring a float variables
        float value = 0.0f;
          
        // use of Single.Parse() Method
        value = Single.Parse(Console.ReadLine());
      
        //printing the value
        Console.WriteLine("Value = {0}", value);
    }
}

Console Input:



12.34

Output:

Value = 12.34

float.Parse() Method

The float.Parse() method is used to convert given string value to the float value. This method is consist of the following: 

  •  float is an alias of Single class.
  •  Parse() is its method.

Syntax:

float_value = float.Parse(Console.ReadLine());

Example: Take input of a float value using float.Parse() Method

C#




// C# program to Take input 
// of a float value using 
// float.Parse() Method
    
using System;
using System.Text;
  
public class GFG{
      
    // Main Method
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        // declaring a float variables
        float value = 0.0f;
          
        // use of float.Parse() Method
        value = float.Parse(Console.ReadLine());
      
        // printing the value
        Console.WriteLine("Value = {0}", value);
    }
}

Console Input:

12.34

Output:

Value = 12.34

Convert.ToSingle() Method

The Convert.ToSingle() Method is used to convert given object to the float value. This method is consist of the following: 

  •  Convertis a class.
  •  ToSingle() is its method.

Syntax:

float_value = Convert.ToSingle(Console.ReadLine());

Example: Take input of a float value using Convert.ToSingle() Method

C#




// C# program to Take input 
// of a float value using 
// Convert.ToSingle() method
    
using System;
using System.Text;
  
public class GFG{
      
    // Main Method
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        // declaring a float variable
        float value = 0.0f;
          
        // use of Convert.ToSingle() Method
        value = Convert.ToSingle(Console.ReadLine());
      
        // printing the value
        Console.WriteLine("Value = {0}", value);
    }
}

Console Input:

12.34

Output:

Value = 12.34
