Decimal Explicit Conversion (Decimal to Single)
Defines an explicit conversion of a Decimal to a single-precision floating-point number.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
This operation can result in a loss of precision, because a single-precision floating-point number has fewer significant digits than a Decimal.
This operator supports the explicit conversion of a Decimal to a Single. The syntax for such explicit conversions is language-dependent, and individual language compilers can provide different implementations and return different results. The example illustrates the different return values when you explicitly convert a Decimal value to a Single value by using C# and Visual Basic. To perform a conversion that is independent of language, you can call the ToSingle or the Convert.ToSingle(Decimal) method.
