converting a string to an int

I can't remember how to convert a string to an int. I have the variable x which has the value of "1". How can I then convert it to an int? I've tried something like...
int x = (int)x
int y = (int)x
but I always get errors. Thanks.

How about
String x = "1";
int y = Integer.parseInt(x);

There are three methods that I could think of given
String x = "1"
new Integer(x).intValue()
and probably the preferred way as described in the previous post
I agree. Here's the link:
