Decimal.IConvertible.ToDouble Method

This API supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

For a description of this member, see IConvertible.ToDouble.

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

private abstract ToDouble : 
        provider:IFormatProvider -> float 
private override ToDouble : 
        provider:IFormatProvider -> float 

Parameters

provider
Type: System.IFormatProvider
This parameter is ignored.

Return Value

Type: System.Double
The value of the current instance, converted to a Double.

Implements

IConvertible.ToDouble(IFormatProvider)

This member is an explicit interface member implementation. It can be used only when the Decimal instance is cast to an IConvertible interface. The recommended alternative is to call either the Decimal.ToDouble method or the Convert.ToDouble method.

Because a Double has fewer significant digits than a Decimal, this operation may produce round-off errors.
