Convert string to value without erroring on fail

	//Try and convert without checking result
	int.TryParse(MyStringValue, out Value);		//Value will be set to 0 if conversion fails

	//Convert and get result if it worked or not
	bool ValueIsNumeric = int.TryParse(MyStringValue, out Value);

For larger values:

    UInt64 Value = 123;
    ValueIsNumeric = UInt64.TryParse(MyStringValue, out Value);		//Value will be set to 0 if conversion fails
