Int16 Structure

Represents a 16-bit signed integer.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
[SerializableAttribute]
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]
public struct Int16 : IComparable, IFormattable, 
	IConvertible, IComparable<short>, IEquatable<short>

The Int16 value type represents signed integers with values ranging from negative 32768 through positive 32767.

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

For information about how format specification codes control the string representation of value types, see Formatting Overview.

This type implements interfaces IComparable, IComparable<T>, IFormattable, and IConvertible. Use the Convert class for conversions instead of this type's explicit interface member implementation of IConvertible.

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.
