Decimal Implicit Conversion (Int64 to Decimal)

Converts a 64-bit signed integer to a Decimal.

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

public static implicit operator decimal (
	long value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Int64
The 64-bit signed integer to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Decimal
The converted 64-bit signed integer.

The following code example converts Int64 values to Decimal numbers using the Int64 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 long to decimal.
using System;

class DecimalFromInt64Demo
{
    const string formatter = 
        "{0,20}{1,21}{2,10:X8}{3,9:X8}{4,9:X8}{5,9:X8}";

    // Convert the long argument and display the decimal value.
    public static void DecimalFromInt64( long 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 long " +
            "to decimal generates the \nfollowing output. It " +
            "displays the decimal value and its binary " +
            "representation.\n" );
        Console.WriteLine( formatter, "long argument", 
            "decimal value", "bits[3]", "bits[2]", 
            "bits[1]", "bits[0]" );
        Console.WriteLine( formatter, "-------------", 
            "-------------", "-------", "-------", 
            "-------", "-------" );

        // Convert long values and display the results.
        DecimalFromInt64( long.MinValue );
        DecimalFromInt64( long.MaxValue );
        DecimalFromInt64( 0xFFFFFFFFFFFF );
        DecimalFromInt64( 123456789123456789 );
        DecimalFromInt64( -1000000000000000 );
    }
