BitConverter.ToUInt16 Method

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

This method is not CLS-compliant.  

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)] 
public static ushort ToUInt16 (
	byte[] value,
	int startIndex
)
/** @attribute CLSCompliantAttribute(false) */ 
public static UInt16 ToUInt16 (
	byte[] value, 
	int startIndex
)
CLSCompliantAttribute(false) 
public static function ToUInt16 (
	value : byte[], 
	startIndex : int
) : ushort

Parameters

value

The array of bytes.

startIndex

The starting position within value.

Return Value

A 16-bit unsigned integer formed by two bytes beginning at startIndex.
Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

startIndex is less than zero or greater than the length of value minus 2.

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( "------------------" );
        Console.WriteLine( BitConverter.ToString( byteArray ) );

        BAToUInt16( byteArray, 3 );
        BAToUInt16( byteArray, 5 );
