Int16Converter Class

Provides a type converter to convert 16-bit signed integer objects to and from other representations.

Namespace: System.ComponentModel
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public class Int16Converter : BaseNumberConverter
public class Int16Converter extends BaseNumberConverter
public class Int16Converter extends BaseNumberConverter
Not applicable.

This converter can only convert a 16-bit signed integer object to and from a string. The Int16 value type represents signed integers with values ranging from negative 32768 through positive 32767.

The ConvertFrom method uses the Parse method of Int16 with the integer value of NumberStyles.

The ConvertTo method uses the general ("G") format for the string returned.

For more information about type converters, see the TypeConverter base class and How to: Implement a Type Converter.

NoteNote:

You should never create an instance of an Int16Converter. Instead, call the GetConverter method of TypeDescriptor. For more information, see the examples in the TypeConverter base class.

The following code example converts a variable of type Int16 to a string, and vice versa.

short myInt16 = -10000;
string myInt16String = "+20000";
Console.WriteLine(TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(myInt16).ConvertTo(myInt16, typeof(string))); 
Console.WriteLine(TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(myInt16).ConvertFrom(myInt16String));    

short myInt16 = -10000;
String myInt16String = "+20000";
Console.WriteLine(TypeDescriptor.GetConverter((Int16)(myInt16)).
    ConvertTo((Int16)myInt16, String.class.ToType()));
Console.WriteLine(TypeDescriptor.GetConverter((Int16)myInt16).
    ConvertFrom(myInt16String));

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
