The closest equivalent to the standard VB casting macros (CType and the corresponding CInt, CStr, etc.) are calls to the System.Convert methods if the appropriate method exists, otherwise they are converted to the standard C# casting operator.
The behavior of both the System.Convert methods and the standard C# casting operator are subtly different from the VB casting macros though, so you should always test the behavior of your converted C# code.
The C# equivalent to VB's DirectCast is the standard C# casting operator.
The VB TryCast operator always converts to the C# as operator.
Use Instant C# to convert from VB.NET to C#.
