BitConverter.ToUInt16 Method

Returns a 16-bit unsigned integer converted from two bytes at a specified position in a byte array.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static ushort ToUInt16(
	byte[] value,
	int startIndex
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Byte[]
The array of bytes.
startIndex
Type: System.Int32
The starting position within value.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt16
A 16-bit unsigned integer formed by two bytes beginning at startIndex.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

startIndex equals the length of value minus 1.

ArgumentNullException

value is null.

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

startIndex is less than zero or greater than the length of value minus 1.

The following code example converts elements of Byte arrays to UInt16 values with the ToUInt16 method.


// Example of the BitConverter.ToUInt16 method.
using System;

class BytesToUInt16Demo
{
    const string formatter = "{0,5}{1,17}{2,10}";

    // Convert two byte array elements to a ushort and display it.
    public static void BAToUInt16( byte[ ] bytes, int index )
    {
        ushort value = BitConverter.ToUInt16( bytes, index );

        Console.WriteLine( formatter, index, 
            BitConverter.ToString( bytes, index, 2 ), value );
    }

    public static void Main( )
    {
        byte[] byteArray = {
            15, 0, 0, 255, 3, 16, 39, 255, 255, 127 };

        Console.WriteLine( 
            "This example of the BitConverter.ToUInt16( byte[ ], " +
            "int ) \nmethod generates the following output. It " +
            "converts elements \nof a byte array to ushort values.\n" );
        Console.WriteLine( "initial byte array" );
        Console.WriteLine( "------------------" );
        Console.WriteLine( BitConverter.ToString( byteArray ) );
        Console.WriteLine( );
        Console.WriteLine( formatter, "index", "array elements", 
            "ushort" );
        Console.WriteLine( formatter, "-----", "--------------", 
            "------" );

        // Convert byte array elements to ushort values.
        BAToUInt16( byteArray, 1 );
        BAToUInt16( byteArray, 0 );
        BAToUInt16( byteArray, 3 );
        BAToUInt16( byteArray, 5 );
        BAToUInt16( byteArray, 8 );
        BAToUInt16( byteArray, 7 );
    }
}
