Convert.ToInt16 Method (Int32)

Converts the value of the specified 32-bit signed integer to an equivalent 16-bit signed integer.

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

public static short ToInt16(
	int value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Int32

The 32-bit signed integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Int16
The 16-bit signed integer equivalent of value.

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

value is greater than Int16.MaxValue or less than Int16.MinValue.

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

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

foreach (int 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: 
//    The Int32 value -2147483648 is outside the range of the Int16 type. 
//    Converted the Int32 value -1 to a Int16 value -1. 
//    Converted the Int32 value 0 to a Int16 value 0. 
//    Converted the Int32 value 121 to a Int16 value 121. 
//    Converted the Int32 value 340 to a Int16 value 340. 
//    The Int32 value 2147483647 is outside the range of the Int16 type.
