The following example converts an array of signed bytes to Char values.

sbyte[] numbers = { SByte.MinValue, -1, 40, 80, 120, SByte.MaxValue };
char result;
foreach (sbyte number in numbers)
{
   try {
      result = Convert.ToChar(number);
      Console.WriteLine("{0} converts to '{1}'.", number, result);
   }   
   catch (OverflowException) {
      Console.WriteLine("{0} is outside the range of the Char data type.",
                        number);
   }
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//       -128 is outside the range of the Char data type. 
//       -1 is outside the range of the Char data type. 
//       40 converts to '('. 
//       80 converts to 'P'. 
//       120 converts to 'x'. 
//       127 converts to '⌂'.
