# Decimal Implicit Conversion (Int32 to Decimal)

.NET Framework 4

Converts a 32-bit signed integer to a Decimal.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
```public static implicit operator decimal (
int value
)
```

#### Parameters

value
Type: System.Int32
The 32-bit signed integer to convert.

#### Return Value

Type: System.Decimal
The converted 32-bit signed integer.

The following code example converts Int32 values to Decimal numbers using the Int32 to Decimal conversion. This conversion is implicit in C#, but requires the op_Implicit operator in Visual Basic and C++. Implicit conversions to Decimal use other methods in these languages.

```
// Example of the implicit conversion from int to decimal.
using System;

class DecimalFromInt32Demo
{
const string formatter =
"{0,13}{1,15}{2,10:X8}{3,9:X8}{4,9:X8}{5,9:X8}";

// Convert the int argument and display the decimal value.
public static void DecimalFromInt32( int argument )
{
decimal decValue;
int[ ]  bits;

// Display the decimal and its binary representation.
decValue = argument;
bits = decimal.GetBits( decValue );

Console.WriteLine( formatter, argument, decValue,
bits[ 3 ], bits[ 2 ], bits[ 1 ], bits[ 0 ] );
}

public static void Main( )
{
Console.WriteLine(
"This example of the implicit conversion from int " +
"to decimal generates the \nfollowing output. It " +
"displays the decimal value and its binary " +
"representation.\n" );
Console.WriteLine( formatter, "int argument",
"decimal value", "bits[3]", "bits[2]",
"bits[1]", "bits[0]" );
Console.WriteLine( formatter, "------------",
"-------------", "-------", "-------",
"-------", "-------" );

// Convert int values and display the results.
DecimalFromInt32( int.MinValue );
DecimalFromInt32( int.MaxValue );
DecimalFromInt32( 0xFFFFFF );
DecimalFromInt32( 123456789 );
DecimalFromInt32( -1000000000 );
}
}
