Convert.ToInt16 Method (UInt64)

Converts the value of the specified 64-bit unsigned integer to an equivalent 16-bit signed integer.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static short ToInt16(
	ulong value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.UInt64

The 64-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Int16
A 16-bit signed integer that is equivalent to value.

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

value is greater than Int16.MaxValue.

The following example attempts to convert each element in an array of unsigned long integers to a 16-bit signed integer.

ulong[] numbers = { UInt64.MinValue, 121, 340, UInt64.MaxValue };
short result;

foreach (ulong number in numbers)
{
   try {
      result = Convert.ToInt16(number);
      Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value {1} to a {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 Int16 type.",
                        number.GetType().Name, number);
   }
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//    Converted the UInt64 value 0 to a Int16 value 0. 
//    Converted the UInt64 value 121 to a Int16 value 121. 
//    Converted the UInt64 value 340 to a Int16 value 340. 
//    The UInt64 value 18446744073709551615 is outside the range of the Int16 type.
