Decimal.Implicit Operator

Converts a 32-bit unsigned integer to a Decimal.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public static implicit operator decimal (
	uint value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.UInt32

A 32-bit unsigned integer.

Return Value

Type: System.Decimal
A Decimal that represents the converted 32-bit unsigned integer.

The following code example converts UInt32 values to Decimal numbers using the UInt32 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 uint to decimal. 
using System;

class DecimalFromUInt32Demo
{
    const string formatter = 
        "{0,15}{1,15}{2,10:X8}{3,9:X8}{4,9:X8}{5,9:X8}";

    // Convert the uint argument and display the decimal value. 
    public static void DecimalFromUInt32( uint 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 uint " +
            "to decimal generates the \nfollowing output. It " +
            "displays the decimal value and its binary " +
            "representation.\n" );
        Console.WriteLine( formatter, "uint argument", 
            "decimal value", "bits[3]", "bits[2]", 
            "bits[1]", "bits[0]" );
        Console.WriteLine( formatter, "-------------", 
            "-------------", "-------", "-------", 
            "-------", "-------" );

        // Convert uint values and display the results.
        DecimalFromUInt32( uint.MinValue );
        DecimalFromUInt32( uint.MaxValue );
        DecimalFromUInt32( 0xFFFFFF );
        DecimalFromUInt32( 123456789 );
        DecimalFromUInt32( 4000000000 );
    }
