static unsigned char ToByte(
	Decimal value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System::Decimal
The number to convert.

Return Value

value, rounded to the nearest 8-bit unsigned integer. If value is halfway between two whole numbers, the even number is returned; that is, 4.5 is converted to 4, and 5.5 is converted to 6.

ExceptionCondition
OverflowException

value is greater than Byte::MaxValue or less than Byte::MinValue.

The following example converts a Byte value to a Decimal and a Decimal value to a Byte.


public:
   void ConvertByteDecimal( Byte byteVal )
   {
      Decimal decimalVal;

      // Byte to decimal conversion will not overflow.
      decimalVal = System::Convert::ToDecimal( byteVal );
      System::Console::WriteLine( "The Byte as a decimal is {0}.",
         decimalVal );

      // Decimal to Byte conversion can overflow.
      try
      {
         byteVal = System::Convert::ToByte( decimalVal );
         System::Console::WriteLine( "The Decimal as a Byte is {0}.",
         byteVal );
      }
      catch ( System::OverflowException^ ) 
      {
         System::Console::WriteLine(
            "The decimal value is too large for a Byte." );
      }
   }
