Decimal.op_Implicit Method (Int16)

Converts a 16-bit signed integer to a Decimal.

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

public static implicit operator decimal (
	short value
)
J# supports the use of custom casts, but not the declaration of new ones.
JScript supports the use of custom casts, but not the declaration of new ones.

Parameters

value

A 16-bit signed integer.

Return Value

A Decimal that represents the converted 16-bit signed integer.

The following code example converts Int16 values to Decimal numbers using the Int16 to Decimal conversion. This conversion is implicit in C#, but requires the op_Implicit operator in Visual Basic and C++. Implicit conversions to Decimal use other methods in these languages.

// Example of the implicit conversion from short to decimal.
using System;

class DecimalFromInt16Demo
{
    const string formatter = 
        "{0,15}{1,15}{2,10:X8}{3,9:X8}{4,9:X8}{5,9:X8}";

    // Convert the short argument and display the decimal value.
    public static void DecimalFromInt16( short argument )
    {
        decimal decValue;
        int[ ]  bits;

        // Display the decimal and its binary representation.
        decValue = argument;
        bits = decimal.GetBits( decValue );

        Console.WriteLine( formatter, argument, decValue, 
            bits[ 3 ], bits[ 2 ], bits[ 1 ], bits[ 0 ] );
    }

    public static void Main( )
    {
        Console.WriteLine( 
            "This example of the implicit conversion from short " +
            "to decimal generates the \nfollowing output. It " +
            "displays the decimal value and its binary " +
            "representation.\n" );
        Console.WriteLine( formatter, "short argument", 
            "decimal value", "bits[3]", "bits[2]", 
            "bits[1]", "bits[0]" );
        Console.WriteLine( formatter, "--------------", 
            "-------------", "-------", "-------", 
            "-------", "-------" );

        // Convert short values and display the results.
        DecimalFromInt16( short.MinValue );
        DecimalFromInt16( short.MaxValue );
        DecimalFromInt16( 0xFFF );
        DecimalFromInt16( 12345 );
        DecimalFromInt16( -10000 );
    }
}
