    Default How to convert a String into an Hexadecimal ?

    Hi everyone,

    I have a String which represents a hexadecimal number (e.g. "5FA2"). Ideally, I would like to convert this String into an int (e.g. 0x5FA2), is there a quick way to do this ?

    I can't use the method "Integer.parseInt()" since my String represents an hexadecimal and not a decimal.

    Thanks for your help

    Use the Integer.parseInt for in which you specify a radix, in this case 16

    int i = Integer.parseInt("5FA2", 16);
