Decimal.ToUInt16 Method

Converts the value of the specified Decimal to the equivalent 16-bit unsigned integer.

This method is not CLS-compliant.  The CLS-compliant alternative is ToInt32.

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

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)] 
public static ushort ToUInt16 (
	decimal value
)
/** @attribute CLSCompliantAttribute(false) */ 
public static UInt16 ToUInt16 (
	Decimal value
)
CLSCompliantAttribute(false) 
public static function ToUInt16 (
	value : decimal
) : ushort

Parameters

value

A Decimal value to convert.

Return Value

A 16-bit unsigned integer equivalent to the value of value.
Exception typeCondition

OverflowException

value is greater than UInt16.MaxValue or less than UInt16.MinValue.

The return value is the integral part of the decimal value; fractional digits are truncated.

The following code example converts Decimal numbers to UInt16 values using the ToUInt16 method.

// Example of the decimal.ToInt16 and decimal.ToUInt16 methods.
using System;

class DecimalToU_Int16Demo
