Here is my line of code where I want to convert the string, which is stored in an array to a float:
I have tried the following with no luck:

You want to use "float", not "Float". Aside from parseFloat(), there's also float.TryParse(), which can handle invalid input better.

You should use float.Parse or float.TryParse (float is the same as Single). However, depending on your culture settings, floats can be represented with a comma (,) or dot (.) to separate the decimals.
If you want to use the following format "3.14" (as perhaps opposed to "3,14"), use the invariant culture number format System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture.NumberFormat.
See this post about number formats.
Also make sure to use the same culture info when converting floats back to strings since they will use your computers culture info by default (causing 3.14 to become "3,14"). Make sure to call ToString like this to get string "3.14".

use float.parse to convert the string to float. also int and double and ... has a parse method too.
