Convert.ToUInt64 Method (Int32)

Converts the value of the specified 32-bit signed integer to an equivalent 64-bit unsigned integer.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static ulong ToUInt64(
	int value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Int32

The 32-bit signed integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt64
A 64-bit unsigned integer that is equivalent to value.

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

value is less than zero.

The following example attempts to convert each element in an array of integers to an unsigned long integer.

int[] numbers = { Int32.MinValue, -1, 0, 121, 340, Int32.MaxValue };
ulong result;

foreach (int number in numbers)
{
   try {
      result = Convert.ToUInt64(number);
      Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value {1} to the {2} value {3}.",
                        number.GetType().Name, number,
                        result.GetType().Name, result);
   } 
   catch (OverflowException) {
      Console.WriteLine("The {0} value {1} is outside the range of the UInt64 type.",
                        number.GetType().Name, number);
   }   
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//    The Int32 value -2147483648 is outside the range of the UInt64 type. 
//    The Int32 value -1 is outside the range of the UInt64 type. 
//    Converted the Int32 value 0 to the UInt64 value 0. 
//    Converted the Int32 value 121 to the UInt64 value 121. 
//    Converted the Int32 value 340 to the UInt64 value 340. 
//    Converted the Int32 value 2147483647 to the UInt64 value 2147483647.
