    adding a char variable to int one

    hi,

    I'm really new to c# and I have a minor problem.

    I can't do this line right:

    Code:
    for(flg=line.Length-1;flg>=0;flg--)
    	{
         	        char c=line [flg];
    		num=num+c;
    	}	
    Console.WriteLine(num.ToString());
    all I get is the ascii value addition.

    for ex: string="123"
    num should be =6 instead I get num = 150

    I tried to do " num=num+(int)c" but it's the same result.

    Char.GetNumericValue is what you want.
