Convert.ToSingle Method (UInt64)

Converts the value of the specified 64-bit unsigned integer to an equivalent single-precision floating-point number.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
<CLSCompliantAttribute(False)> _
Public Shared Function ToSingle ( _
	value As ULong _
) As Single


Type: System.UInt64

The 64-bit unsigned integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Single
A single-precision floating-point number that is equivalent to value.

The following example converts each element in an array of unsigned long integers to a Single value.

Dim numbers() As ULong = { UInt64.MinValue, 121, 12345, UInt64.MaxValue }
Dim result As Single 

For Each number As ULong In numbers
   result = Convert.ToSingle(number)
      Console.WriteLine("Converted the {0} value '{1}' to the {2} value {3}.", _
                        number.GetType().Name, number, _
                        result.GetType().Name, result)
' The example displays the following output: 
'    Converted the UInt64 value '0' to the Single value 0. 
'    Converted the UInt64 value '121' to the Single value 121. 
'    Converted the UInt64 value '12345' to the Single value 12345. 
'    Converted the UInt64 value '18446744073709551615' to the Single value 1.844674E+19.
