In C#/.NET string can be parsed to short in few ways.

1. short.Parse method example

using System;
					
public class Program
{
	public static void Main()
	{
		string text = "123";
		short value = short.Parse(text);
		
		Console.WriteLine(value);
	}
}

Output:

123

2. short.TryParse method example

using System;
					
public class Program
{
	public static void Main()
	{
		string text = "123";
		short value;

		if (short.TryParse(text, out value))
			Console.WriteLine(value);
	}
}

Output:

123

3. Convert.ToInt16 method example

using System;
					
public class Program
{
	public static void Main()
	{
		string text = "123";
		short value = Convert.ToInt16(text);
		
		Console.WriteLine(value);
	}
}

Output:

123

4. TypeConverter.ConvertFrom method example

using System;
using System.ComponentModel;

public class Program
{
	public static void Main()
	{
		TypeConverter converter = TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(typeof(short));

		string text = "123";
		short value = (short)converter.ConvertFrom(text);

		Console.WriteLine(value);
	}
}

Output:
