Represents an 8-bit signed integer.

This API is not CLS-compliant. The CLS-compliant alternative is Int16.

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

[SerializableAttribute]
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]
[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public struct SByte : IComparable, IFormattable, 
	IConvertible, IComparable<sbyte>, IEquatable<sbyte>

The SByte type exposes the following members.

The SByte value type represents integers with values ranging from negative 128 to positive 127.

Important noteImportant

   The SByte type is not CLS-compliant. The CLS-compliant alternative type is Int16. Byte can be used instead to replace a positive SByte value that ranges from zero to MaxValue. For more information about CLS compliance, see Language Independence and Language-Independent Components.

SByte provides methods to compare instances of this type, convert the value of an instance to its string representation, and convert the string representation of a number to an instance of this type.

For information about how format specification codes control the string representation of value types, see Formatting Types in the .NET Framework.

The .NET Framework does not support all versions of every platform. For a list of the supported versions, see .NET Framework System Requirements.

All members of this type are thread safe. Members that appear to modify instance state actually return a new instance initialized with the new value. As with any other type, reading and writing to a shared variable that contains an instance of this type must be protected by a lock to guarantee thread safety.
